Alright this is gonna be a little compilation, of what I could find, of hip-hop videos to come out of Houston in the year 2006. There were certain things I was looking for and didn't find, but here we go.
December 2006 Archives
Alright we are gonna talk about the top 10 best albums of 2006. I wanna know what ya'lls top ten albums were, and I'm gonna hit you with mine. We need some discussion in here though otherwise this blog will be a waste of time. Everyday I hear/read some new top 10 hip-hop albums of '06...and they are always different. I want to hear what Houston has to say in regards to what the top 10 albums of 2006 are. There were a lot of good albums and I could've argued for some that I left off to be on here...but after much decision making this is what I came up with.
Alright it's Tuesday. I hope all ya'll listened to that Mixtape Messiah 2 are getting some rest (for those of you who don't gotta go back to work yet). Today we are talking about that Devin the Dude album coming out next year called Waitin To Inhale.
Houston we're back. Alright, I hope ya'll had a great holiday with the friends and family, it is time to get down with some Houston hip-hop though. Family and friends are good to have, but we all know that this website is much more important (I'm kidding it's only more important to T-Cool). We got new music from Chamillionaire with that Mixtape Messiah 2, and I know how many people have been waiting on that.
Alright it's the last Friday before Christmas so we're gonna keep it real. Remember Paul Wall feat. Mike Jones and Bun B -- "They don't know"...well damn they were really onto something with that song. Everybody hates on the south cuz we do shit different down here. The way I see it, every part of the country does their own style of hip-hop and for some reason people love to hate on down these boys down south.
I been hearing P.O.P on all kinds of songs lately. He was on Knockin Doors Down with Pimp C and Lil' Keke, and he was on a few of the tracks on the I'm Still Livin CD with Z-Ro. I cannot find even the slightest bit of info on this dude though.
That is the only picture of this dude I could find. Ha.
What up in the H. Alright Iâ€™m doing my Houston hip-hop Christmas list right about now. Iâ€™m hoping you will be able to respond to this, and that the website wonâ€™t be fucked up. But, if it isâ€¦just think about what you would say or something. We had a good year in Houston hip-hop. A lot of good shit went on. Iâ€™m gonna talk about what I want to happen next year in my Christmas list.
If you haven't seen Bad Santa...that is some funny shit.
Alright Houston another Tuesday is here and we got to keep the ball rolling. As you all know the 10th annual Justo Mixtape Awards went down at the Apollo Theater in Harlem last week. It turns out that the biggest DJ from Houston (since the passing of DJ Screw), Michael â€œ5000â€ Watts, came up with the â€œbest chop-and-screw DJâ€ award. It was only right that a DJ from Houston accept this honor for obvious reasons, and Watts was an obvious contender in the category.
Friday has arrived. Alright in the blog yesterday I chose to leave out a couple of folks so Iâ€™d have some fun shit to talk about in celebration of Friday. There are two more of Houstonâ€™s veterans that will be dropping albums this upcoming year, Lilâ€™ Flip and Devin the Dude. Lilâ€™ Flip has recently chosen a new home in Asylum, and Devin the Dude still remains a member of the Rap-A-Lot family. Flip and Devin are names that anyone who knows shit about Houston hip-hop is gonna be familiar with.
I think it's obvious...next year could make or break Houston as a hip-hop city. Now when I say that I mean that we could lock down our spot, or have all of our credibility stripped from us. We got big albums comin' from all of our poster boys (Chamillionaire, UGK, Paul Wall, and Mike Jones), but I'm not sure what Slim Thug is doing but I've heard rumors of a CD called Boss of All Bosses to be released in the 1st quarter of next year.
Aight...look at this picture ^ and tell me that isn't funny. I'm gonna take a wild guess at how this went down: Everybody showed up and said "what it do" to eachother for about 30 minutes. Then the photographer was like "Ok guys it's time for roll call." So they did that shit and realized Z-Ro wasn't there. They sit around waiting on his ass and he rolls up in that "Screw Blue" Chrysler that says Z-Ro on the front and pops out of that bitch suited out in all crip gear with a fuckin' bullet proof vest on. The photographer pees a little bit in his pants, and all the dudes that are down with Ro are thinking to themselves "mother fucker...its gonna be a long day." Mike Jones (look at his face in the picture) is like "Woah woah woah is this dude serious? We are tryin to look respectable and homey rolls in late wearing a crip jersey? Is anybody gonna say anything to this dude?" Pimp C is thinking "Fuck. I just got out the pen, and I'm on parole. I ain't goin back. Man I hope shit doesn't go down...I'm, standin far away from these crazy fools." Everyone else tells Mike to shut it before the photoshoot turns into a murder scene (cuz Ro was probably rellooooooading his magazineee).
Ok...back to the subject.
What up Houston. I wanna take today out to talk about something that is not only a huge problem in hip-hop, but in society as a whole. I am going to relate this to Z-Ro the Crooked in order to reference this topic to Houston hip-hop, but it can be applied to everywhere. I donâ€™t give a fuck what the haters sayâ€¦Z-Ro is the most influential, most talented, and problem riddled rapper in the game today. When I say â€œthe game,â€ I mean hip-hop in general. Not just Houston, I mean all of hip-hop world wide. Iâ€™ve already stated my opinion on Ro, so Iâ€™m not gonna repeat myself. Reference past blogs if you donâ€™t know what Iâ€™m talking about. I mean regardless of the fact that Z-Ro has songs like â€œCrooked Officer,â€ you know this man doesnâ€™t blame all of his legal problems (and problems in life) on those crooked cops.
What up SOHH Houston. Somethin is all fucked up with my internet connection tonight so you're gonna have to stay with me... this is gonna be short and sweet. You dudes are always talkin about up-and-coming rappers out the H. Lemme know then man cuz ya'll must be seein somethin I'm not. I know Short Dogg is hot but that man ain't even gotta myspace so it's hard for me to get info and up-to-date shit on him (CORRECTION: http://www.myspace.com/southernflamespitta). Other than that man, I mean there are 20,000 people tryin to make it in the hip-hop game in this city...and I'm havin trouble findin people worth a damn. Today is gonna be like open mic day on SOHH Houston.
Good morning Houston. Mondays are no fun and I'm pretty sure we can all agree on that. We got a long week ahead of us ... so let's try to start off on a positive note.
Chamillionaire is the man. I've been saying that for years, but now it is official. If I had to give the title of "Having the best year ever" to someone in hip-hop, it would have to be Chamillionaire. A lot of people would argue for T.I. but come on man ... look at Cham shining.
It's about damn time friday rolled around. Good mother fuckin friday morning SOHH Houston. Let me start by saying I'm liking the way this is goin man...the Houston blog has been on the lower half of participation and shit...and we're gettin better. We are getting more and more fans of this SOHH Houston shit, or atleast more participants, everyday. To all you loyal mother fuckers who been down on this SOHH Houston blog even before I was around, and are still here, you dudes are doin yo thing. To all of you who are just gettin into this shit...stick around you might learn a thing or two. I'm happy with the way it's going, and when I'm happy I do my best to make ya'll happy, and then shit...everyones happy. Aight now we get down to business. DJ Bounz (pronounced DJ Bounce) is an up-and-coming DJ outa the ATX (Austin, TX for you slow dudes who drool alot). He's droppin a mixtape called Mindset Vol.2 which is hosted by Rasaq, and Tum-Tum outa D-Town.
Alright I know most of you know the name K-Rino and have probably heard some of his shit. I ain't gonna lie, I didn't even know who this dude was untill about a year ago when I stumbled across a few of his songs, and I was like woah where the fuck did this dude come from? Well K-Rino has been rappin for a hot minute. He's the main dude outta the South Park Coalition, and apparently was like Z-Ro's mentor. He gets respect from pretty much all the Houston legends, but this dude has no intention of blowing up, so I'm not even gonna take that into consideration.
Whatâ€™s Beef? A good way to get your name in the news.
No, this isnâ€™t a brand new topic, but I have jack shit to write about today, and in all honesty this rap beef shit is getting old. Ever since 50 cent's beef with Ja Rule fueled his album to sell millions of records, it seems the only hip-hop news I ever get to read about anymore is who is beefing with who. This guy said this, and then dude made a diss track, then other boy popped off on the radio, blah blah fucking blah. Iâ€™m not saying I wish all rappers would band together and embrace each other in hugs of unityâ€¦I just wish that these rappers were more focused on making good music and less focused on talking shit to get attention, and seem like they are hard.
I know you all saw this coming. You knew Rez would eventually drop a Z-Ro blog...I'm gonna be honest. I have the responsibility of holding down the H Town blog and keeping it 100% real with all ya'll, and I felt it was only right to kick off my highly anticipated blogging career (joke) with the Houston artist who I consider to be the most talented, real, underrated MC in this United States of America. Z-Ro the Crooked, the Moâ€™ City Don, King of the Ghetto, Asshole by Nature. The dude has many names and heâ€™s known for so many things. He stays in the commissary line, he canâ€™t put down the drugs, and his sales record sales have been relatively poor (which is a steaming pile of horse shit). All of that aside he is the coldest mother fucker to ever bless a microphone in my opinion. I know what some of you fools are gonna say: â€œGet off his nuts blah blah blahâ€â€¦you are entitled to your opinion.
You gotta show love to the entire Great State of Texas, so I'm gunna throw a bone to Dallas, TX today. Let me start this off by saying: Dallas Mavericks...sorry...Houston Rockets got yo number this year. Ok fo' real back to the topic. Looks like the "Big D" is finally kickin' it up a knotch on the nationwide level and they are gettin' a shot at having one of their representatives blow up big. Big Tuck is droppin his album The Absolute Truth on December 12th (in 8 days). You all know this dude, and all of DSR, has been on those Dallas streets grindin' and hustlin' for a hot minute.
