I realize that east coast music is not a sound but it just seems to ME
that most of the bands, regardless of what genre their music is, still
have this unique sound that isn't found elsewhere. I think what I was
really trying to say is that she's not part of the east coast SCENE and
therefore should not be nominatted. Does that make more sense?
