Only reason people dont think its ghetto cause aint no rappers come from up outta there. Same thing wit Tenessee, Memphis, Houston, New Orleans, all that shit. Erybody thought that it was all cowboys and cactuses in Texas until Chopped N Screwd music got popular and put it on the map. No one thought Nashville Teneseee was anythign but the home of country music till Young Buck did his lil thang and put it on the Map. Its the same thing with Minneapolis, everyone just assumes its soft cause aint nobody really came out and represented. It aint on the map cause aint nobody put it there. Plain and simple..
Minneapolis was one of the worse cities in America back in 95 when it was known as Murderapolis and since then it has been relatively quiet and peaceful, but since like the summer of 04 crime rate and homicide rate and all that shit has been going wayyy up.
Only thing about it is that they got the worse cops in America too. Toughest, biggest and highest employed gang-units in America. They doin that CODEFOUR crime-stoppin thing up there and thats some shit that most cities aint even gotta deal wit, i dunno even know if LAPD got they shit all like that.
Its pretty crazy up there cause on one hand you have one of the most dangerous cities in America (Top10 at least) and on the other hand you have one of the toughest Law Enforcement companies up there too (like Top5 prolly) so theres justa whole lotta violence goin on up there.
You people that aint been there dont know shit, so dont talk about it. But im pretty sure you could google search Murderapolis and getta whole lotta stats and figures on how it is actually ghetto up there not jus some fluff ass city like St. Paul.
Minneapolitan: St. Paul is a suburb.
Many claim it is an extremely dangerous city. Like all american cities, it is dangerous in some places, and clean and safe in others.
Minneapolis has a good park system and is consistently ranked as one of the most bicycle-friendly cities in the country. The public transportation system isn't that great; the bus system is decent and there is only one light-rail line and one commuter rail line going through the city at the moment, though more train lines are being planned. The city really isn't that ghetto compared to a lot of other big cities- parts of it, such as North Minneapolis, are fairly bad but the rest of the city is very safe for a city its size.
