    The “dirty dirty” is taken from the term “dirty south” commonly attributed to Atlanta based and Dungeon Family affiliated rapper Cool Breeze who released Eastpoints Greatest hits in 1999.

  2. Jae says:

    The “Dirty” in dirty south can refer to the storied history and social conflicts in race relations. Touched on in Goodie Mob’s “Soul Food” [eg. Cell Therapy] album as far as government corruption, an impending race war and modern day out-right discrimination that is still allowed to continue. Wikipedia lists it as a style of music but it is the state of the south that got turned into a catch phrase and people identify with but it was from much deeper roots.
