The largest city Northwest of Chicago. It is home of the Elgin watches, with 11 companies nation-wide. Has 3 public High schools: Elgin High, Larkin High, and Gifford Street High/ Central (for the little bad ass teenagers). Elgin has a community college. People from Elgin/ Elginites, get along very well with people from Carpentersville, Rockford, Bensenville, Waukegan, and Chicago. Now just like any other large city Elgin has a high crime rate. Elgin also has a very nice side of town and a very grimey side of town. Also known as the cutt. In around the 70's gangs started getting big in Elgin. As of now the MLD's "run" Elgin. People might also know Elgin by its nicknames like: Evil~E, HellGin, Da Gin, Da ELG & Da E~Town. Now people who never lived in Elgin should never look down on Elgin. It has upcoming musicians, athletes etc. I will always love Elgin this is my hometown. I'm repping Da Evil~E like a mascot!
Where u from boi??
Evil~E/Elgin born n Bred.

A ghetto ass city in Illinois with a whole bunch of hispanics and blacks. Has a east side and a west side. West sides bad but the east side is where all the tweaks, hoes, alchoholics & gangstas are. It has a poulation of about 150,000 people and about 90,000 are criminals. Theres about a killing every other week. But even though with all this crap in this city I still love it.

Small obscure rural town located near South Carolina's capital city of Columbia punctuated by random single-wide trailer homes. The one grocery store is like a gross-you-out food oddity museum for out-of-towners, stocked full with delicious redneck delights such as pork brains, pork snouts, pork tongues, fatback and chitlins in family sized packs. The local social life revolves around the post office as everyone in town stops by for a postage stamp on a daily basis. The town is proud of its history and recently celebrated a centennial and purchased a pretty neat looking town clock. But if you drive through looking for anything historical, you'll be hard pressed to find more than a charming old shack or two.
What's up in Elgin tonight?

Let's go hang out at the post office.

The worst city in all of Texas. Where all the prostitutes go after a long days work. The "gangstas" here are as fake as Charlie Sheens sobriety. Nothing but wiggers who eventually will get shot in their cracker ass. For every high school girl goes into labor, another 4 get pregnant. The possibilities of getting shot in Elgin are 99.9% So don't come here while you still have a chance.
Person 1: "Hey, what's up? Where are you from?"
Person 2: "Elgin Texas"
Person 1: ".....mother fucker get the fuck away from me"
Person 2: "What? I just..."
Person 1: "I said get the fuck away from me"
