I’m not talking about that band who was around “Back when emo ruled before scene kids came and destroyed it all” as a wise YouTube commenter described. I’m talking about some of the recent and historic hip hop that has come from the unfuckwithable state.
I recently went to a show that had Schoolboy Q and a bunch of local acts that I have never heard of. The reason I was planning on spending too much money on double whiskey cokes was purely for the Los Angeles TDE headliner that I cannot get enough of lately. If you haven’t listened to Habits and Contradictions you are missing out on one of the most flawless records to come out in 2012. Anyway, I had no idea what to expect from these small text on the flyer performers but good lord was I in for a treat.
One of them that really impressed me was A.r.k The God MC. Coming from the one and only Screwston, she brings an extremely refreshing style to the world of female rappers. No over the top outfits or try hard sexual lyrics. Just straight to the point and she owns it. In this video she comes out and does a freestyle and then merges into one of her songs called Celefuckinbration. Not really sure if it’s actually her birthday but she goes hard and has me convinced. Shout out to the only white dude at 7:38! When she’s off stage you can catch her hanging out in the crowd being super friendly. “Y’all need to get on that love shit” at 11:56 says it all. Hopefully Tyga’s label G.E.D that currently has her signed will take her places!
Can we talk about how fucking sick this beat is? Y’all can’t south Dallas swag to this! #RARE This video makes me want to get frumdk everyday like it’s my job. Pizza and Shiner beer is my shit! Also, usually when I get the room spins it goes sideways and not up and down so I wonder how long it would take for me to vomit if I watched this after making my 328752th poor decision with alcohol? I’ll update you bros on this science later. BGB has worked with Kendrick Lamar and recently put out an EP called Numb which basically sounds like Kid Cudi fucked up on lean and lost at Skrillex show.
Here is a group that has been getting a lot of hype in Triple D with their latest release that came out recently, “When Pigs Fly.” Picnic Tyme produced solid bangers that work for your vodka in the Sonic slushy moments, or for those times when you’re just trying to smoke with your OTW girlfriend and cuddle. I guess I need to hang out in Oak Cliff more to understand the hard knock life but regardless, I really like what they did with this song. My only complaint is that they like to use the hash tag #ADdHoe. Please drop the e silly boys.
Now that I got you familiar with some new kids on the block, let’s make sure you know who runs shit in Texas. First of all, if you don’t know about DJ Screw get the fuck out of my face. This legend put chopped and screwed on the map so that you could hear about sippin’ on purple drank from every other rapper forever. Easily my favorite style in hip hop.
Catch me in my apartment drinking Hennessy and blasting the one and only Club God every weekend. I can’t tell you how much I love this man. His style is more common around these parts but he destroys everyone else and does it right. Act like you’re not going to pre-game with this!
Dorrough gave Texas a little bit of attention last summer with these two songs. They still make me want to get white girl wasted but I can’t get into his other stuff that much.
I’ll wrap up this post on some classic bangers from Paul Wall and MIKE JOOONES. You might remember these two taking over the radio about eight years ago. These days Paul Wall is mad skinny and Mike Jones is broke and probably changed his number. I stay putting these jams on blast because they never get old.
Have you ever sipped on lean and Instagramed it??? Are you looking up how to south Dallas swag on YouTube right now??? Would you shotgun three tall boys with me while looking at the H-Town skyline??? Do you jerk it to Alexis Texas and her fine ass???
