Alright then...Boss Hogg Outlawz dropped their new CD, To Serve and Collect, yesterday. The album was released on Koch Records. From the tracks I've heard it is straight fire. I haven't had the chance to actually cop the album yet, but I've heard 6 of the songs, and it is straight fire. Man, I've been saying it for a while, but Slim Thug and them boys do not get anywhere near enough recognition (even in the H).
February 2007 Archives
I don't have anything to say about this. I know all of you can say it for me. What is this world coming to?
What's upppp? I was making my daily myspace rounds to check on updated shit and all that, when I noticed Chamillionaire had a new blog up. If you don't know his myspace page it is: www.myspace.com/chamillionaire. It turns out Cham was up in Vegas for the NBA All-Star game and had some pretty interesting things to say about the whole situation.
I know Boo's from Mississippi, but he shows the H mad love and he's out here all the time ...
Speak on his new video.
Alright ya'll on Saturday, March 3rd the Hip-Hop Summit Action Network (HSAN) is returning to Houston, TX to kick off its 2007 national "Get Your Money Right" tour on financial empowerment. The Co-Chairmen of this tour are Russell Simmons and Dr. Benjamin Chavis, and they will have hip-hop stars such as Ciara, Monica, Chamillionaire, E-40, Chingo Bling and Slim Thug backing them up. Also, Mathew Knowles super producer Bryan-Michael Cox, and Congressman Al Green (D-TX) will be present.
Ok for once I gotta give Mike Jones some credit. He has obviously realized that going after the older audience of hip-hop is probably not the best idea. This explains the lack of strippers and such in this video. The first single for his new album American Dream, dropping on April 3rd, is called "Mr. Jones." The video was recently released and is pretty damn funny to me. Remember the uncensored video for "Still Tippin'"...it was like nasty stripper heaven.
This video is the complete opposite.
What's good Houston sorry for the delay of blog, my mother fuckin internet connection is worthless. Who watched the Rockets vs. Mavericks game? What a bullshit loss...how do we repeatedly throw away the biggest games...I mean we had that game in the bag, hands down, all we had to do was close it off and hit a couple of free throws. Anyway enough about that. Remember that blog a couple weeks back that I did on the TMI Boyz? If you don't...go back and check it out. These guys are on the come-up and I've posted some of their songs and one of their videos on a previous blog.
Alright alright alright what's up ya'll. Today we are gonna get down a dirty with a serious topic that obviously has a lot of people speaking up. The South has been a huge part of hip-hop all over the place the last few years, and has definitely had a huge impact on the state of hip-hop as a whole. Alot of people talk about H Town and the ATL as the main cities of hip-hop in the South (and this is true), but which city is more responsible for the exposure of Southern hip-hop nation-wide? Which city really runs the South?
Alright seeing as that all of the artists in the above title will be dropping albums over the next few months (or atleast they are all set to as of right now) I decided to throw down a video or two for each of them and say a couple of things. I'm going to keep my biased opinions out of this one. I got love for everyone dropping albums nationwide from Houston, whether or not they choose to use that fame to make H Town look good/bad is up to them.
Alright UGK released their video for "The Game Belongs To Me" which will be on their new album UGK Underground Kingz, set to be released 4/3/2007. I hit ya'll with the street sampler on Friday so I figured I might as well hit you with the newly released music video while it's fresh in your minds.
I'm gonna get you high today, 'cause it's Friday; you ain't got no job... and you ain't got shit to do.What's goin down? We got an update on the soon-to-be-released UGK album, UGK Underground Kingz. They have released a street sampler featuring 5 songs off of the album. If you ain't heard, when the actual CD drops on 4/3/2007 it is gonna be 2 disks with 25 songs...I'm excited...your excited...everybody is excited.
What's up Houston. Alright I'm bringing ya'll a Jokaman update, along with that Z-Ro ft. Papa Reu video that for whatever reason, I forgot to add to the blog yesterday. Alright as you all know Jokaman is releasing his new album In The Fastlane on February 13th. Well he has released a "free bonus mixtape" to keep promotion going for his soon-to-be-released album.
"Thug Hall" is Papa Reu's own musical style. Papa Reu is from Tobago, but he moved to the H in his teens. He was only 15 years old when his mixture of dancehall reggae and hip-hop caught the attention of 8Ball and MJG, but at that moment he was enlisted on the group's 1994 album On the Outside Looking In.
Magno AKA Magnificent. I seen a couple of ya'll wanted to get a Magno blog up on here, well...here ya go. The first time I ever heard Magno was on 1st Round Draft Picks with Mike Jones, and that was honestly the CD that really started to get me deep into the Houston underground scene. I had never heard a CD that from front to back banged (atleast not underground)...every single song. Now sense then I have gone back and definately found other CDs that are sick from start to finish. Some were made before, and some after, 1st Round Draft Picks. However, being a younger dude, that was the first CD that I heard and was like damn...H Town has some serious shit on the come-up.
Alright it's Monday let's start the week off with a Z-Ro blog. Which probably is not surprising to anyone who has ever read my blogs before. Z-Ro is the King of the Ghetto, Mo City Don, Z-Ro the Crooked, and sickest mother fucker to ever spit on a mic. Once a month I usually go all out and throw down a Z-Ro blog just to make sure that everyone
gets a chance is forced to recognize that this man is the truth in the streets.
What's up! It's Friday again, and we all survived through another week. In celebration of that, I'm gonna go ahead and put some old school tunes up on the blog.
Starting this month, we are about to have major CD releases from all the great Houston artists up in the national spotlight. You all know we are 'bout to stay on top of this hip-hop thing. Dirty South we don't stop!
But, before we get all these new CDs and shit poppin off I figured we better take a minute to remember the old school shit to pay homage to what got this H Town style started.
