Yeah that's right the Three 6 Mafia is coming back with a new album and they're ready to jump it off with a strip club type anthem that I've got for you to download and listen to. It's titled 'I'd Rather' and as soon as the track starts I think you'll know what they'd rather do and Im sure you'd rather do the same too. So check out the track and let everyone know how you feel in the comments. Im sure things are going to heat up this summer with the Memphis Tenn representers!
So I might have mentioned him before, I know I've talked about him on TrillSouth but 2Pistols is definitely starting to come up. I had the first mixtape downloaded and playing in my ride and as of late this 'She Got It' track with T Pain is starting to catch a little heat. So today I've got the remix track and the brand new music video for you that you'll definitely be able to see in rotation on the music video networks. First the video and after the break, it's the remix.
So you might have heard recently that Webbie and Boosie were catching a lawsuit for $1 million for a supposed no show at a club. Well this little video is starting to circulate in the past few days of Webbie on a local radio show being confronted by the promoter involved in the lawsuit. I guess it's time for everyone to start eating now that his album is supposed to drop tomorrow and the 'Independent' single is hot.
So are you copping that 'Savage Life 2' or is it not for you?
It took a minute but this track thats burning up the south finally has a video. It was shot a few weeks ago and features all of the RudeBwoy crew including Lil Wil of course. It also has a few guest appearances by some d town representers and one hip hop legend. Im sure you can guess who that legend is.

This is for some of the older hip hop heads out there that remember back when Luke tried to go at Death Row and Dr Dre. Do you remember that? Did he really have something to say or was he just trying to get himself in the hype and get some sales? Do you even remember back when this video played on BET? I bet a lot of you wont even remember this.

So I asked a few questions about Flo Rida last week and more than a few of you had something to say. It's with that in mind that I throw up his new video 'Elevator' which is to be his latest single featuring Timbaland.
So this weekend was the NBA All Star game in New Orleans and it was a pretty tame weekend overall. But there was one set of events that was supposed to be the talk of the town and maybe the southern rap scene. That was the Hot Boys near reunion that was to happen Sunday night after the all star game with a guest appearance from Bun B even. But it never happened. More violence and guns, shooting and it resulted in 3 people being shot and the event being cancelled.
Will we ever see a Hot Boys reunion? Wayne says its only a phone call away. Do we want to see a Hot Boys reunion? I'll admit they were hot in the south for a minute there and you already know Im not a Wayne fan.
You know I dont know what it is and if its going to translate into album sales or not but Flo-Rida is killing them with his hit single 'Low.' I know you've heard it already, your girl probably loves it and I know I hate it, but damn he's getting after them on the Billboard charts. Breaking the digital record and staying on top of the BillBoard Hot 100 for 8 weeks now. His album hasn't dropped yet but it will soon and I wonder will all of this translate into album sales. You tell me what you think. My opinion is that it wont, and I like the dude personally, but these singles buyers and fans are nowhere near loyal, thats why they buy singles. His album will fade fast and then I wonder whats next.
Im just wondering why do we care when rappers get arrested. Are you one of those people that slows down and stares when you see an accident and causes another accident.
So Juve gets busted with a little weed and its breaking news.
Wayne gets arrested every other month and it's the talk of the industry on all the rap news and blog sites.
TI is starting up a hit squad gun club and its huge news for a day but no one seems to care now.
Do they glorify the sex, guns and drugs or do we? Do you care about what happens after the fact or do you like to see someone falling or fail who's got more money and fame than you? Do you get off on seeing a rapper get arrested and talking about it for a day and then talking about the next person you find to hate on? I dont know, I just thought we'd think for a minute rather than discuss rumors.
Yeah you saw me alluding to Wes Fif recently so Im going to let you check out the Slip N Slide 'Speedin' remix with Wes Fif on it so that you can hear a little of what Im talking about. I hear a lot of sh!t and I think Wes may well be one of the next to pop off big. Feel free to hate on him and me, but either way I know you'll be listening.
Look who I caught up with recently and talked to for a few. I asked him what he had coming up and let him give a shout out to those of you that read the SOHH site each day. You know what it is, does he get your girls juice box wet? I've been checking out his new mixtape and it's not bad, especially since it's coming out of Atlanta.
It's been a minute now and Bun B is back after a little grieving and grinding. This Friday he took the stage with the support of the Houston hip hop community and plenty of heavyweights in the game to celebrate Pimp C and continue the UGK legacy. So first a little clip that SOHH Gyant pointed out to me from a local Houston station where they spoke with Bun the day of the show and he spoke on a few things.

You know I caught myself sitting back and reminiscing a bit yesterday. I'm sure you guys don't know but your boy DigiPimp is in Ohio right now visiting friends and just hanging out. I have to say I'm starting to miss Texas and I didn't realize how much the south was different until I got here. I just don't think they know what's really going on in the rest of the country, you just have to be there and so I was sitting back and listening to some old Swishahouse and watching some videos.
remember this one getting it started

So I got this track in my email a couple of days ago and thought I'd share it with you. It's some new Young Buck called 'Drivin Down the Freeway' with the Outlawz also on the track. I'll let you be the judge of whether or not this is a hot one. I've listened to it a few times and can't say that I like it.

So in the past week I had a man who reads the blog speak up and tell me he had something that people should hear. He said to let you be the judge and Im going to do that. It goes along with the theme of reality and are they as real and their rhymes. Were you a gangsta before you got rich or after? Do you rap to educate or are you just a cartoon? Well here's a little video of this cat out of Houston by the name of Priceless speaking a little bit about this and you can tell me if he's nice or not.

So what do you think about this one. The news slipped out yesterday without a lot of attention paid to it, but the LA Coroner has ruled the death of Pimp C as accidental they say due to his sleep apnea condition and high levels of codeine in his system.
So recently I asked what was the next southern city that was about to blow up and you all had plenty to say. So now I'd like to know if you can tell me who the next southern artist or group is that's about to blow up. Do you have a favorite? Is it someone most of us haven't heard of yet, or is it someone whose album is about to drop? Where is he or she, or where are they from?
I will put a shout out in there for an artist that I see about to make it and blow up. He's got the lyrics, the hustle, the will to get out and get it, and I'll just give you a hint, he's from Florida heres a pic and I'll tell you more about him if you guess who he is.
