If you're looking for a breath of fresh air in the Texas hip-hop scene, Mojoe is the answer. The duo -- Tre and Easy Lee -- remind me of OutKast in their prime. Thanks to Houston's deafening buzz, everyone seems to be getting a major deal these days. Mojoe's San Antonio-bred classic.ghetto.soul music has now earned them a spot on Mathew Knowles' Music World imprint, which is distributed by Fontana Music Group. Honestly, I don't know if this is good news or bad news.
LaTavia and LeToya could probably tell you how controlling Beyonce's pops can get. So much that poor Beyonce had to record her newest album in secrecy to avoid any confrontation with Mathew. I'm happy for Mojoe -- their music is utterly refreshing, and they deserve a shot at a major deal. At the same time, they'll need some lawyers that dress warm and some exceptional math skills.
Get you some Mojoe:
