how rap is affected by geography?

I need help getting started on my geography cultural diversity paper.

I want to write about how rap is different by locations (ie east coast, west coast, south, midwest).

My thesis is something like: Rap’s varied sounds have been modified by its specific geographies as it has developed.

I am not sure where to look for non-internet sources.

I'm honestly just scared to start writing it's such a broad topic I don't even know where to start! I am not that knowledgeable about rap actually and i though this would be a good way to learn.

What would be a good rough outline to follow? should i change my thesis?
