Yesterday (May 19), Drake announced the schedule for the second annual OVO-run Houston Appreciation Weekend (HAW), which kicks off tomorrow (May 21) with a Bun B tribute event and ends Sunday (May 24) with a Drizzy/Future "Jungle" show and a Boosie Badazz afte
As we learned last week, Drake and the OVO squad will be making "Houston Appreciation Weekend" an annual thing, and with the 2015 edition kicking off on Thursday, they've shared a schedule of events.
Kirko Bangz provides a new tune just in time for your weekend, and it comes from an unexpected place with Kirko's take on "Ay Vamos." The original cut is from Columbian singer J Balvin and dates back to 2014, but you may or may not know that a n
One of the few Danny Brown features we've gotten this year was on BeatKing's latest mixtape Club God 4. BeatKing is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with outta Houston, and Danny Brown is the perfect match for his ratchet club-wrecking sound.
OG Ron C is the world's finest purveyor of the Houston chop n screw sound, and his right-hand man, DJ Candlestick, is right up there too.
"Cell Boomin" is off Maxo Kream's recent mixtape MAXO 187, which put the young Houston rapper on the map. For the video, though, he gets Atlanta's Father to join in, making the track that much better.
OG Ron C, along with the late DJ Screw, is the originator of the chopped & screwed sound. He's as big a player in Houston hip-hop as any H-Town rapper.
Bun B's latest endeavor is one that's pretty unprecedented in the rap game. This Spring, he'll be co-teaching an online course called "Hip Hop & Religion" with Rice University professor Dr.
In just under 24 hours, we'll be premiering the new mixtape from Mike Jones, Money Train. Although the Mo City legend has already dropped a staggering six tracks from the tape before it drops, it appears that he's not quite done yet.
Drake has never been shy about expressing his gratitude towards Houston, Texas. With his own Houston Appreciation Weekend kicking off today, Drizzy has always made it clear that H-Town is his second home. And to re-pay the respect, Mayor Annise D.
Paul Wall has a pretty good side hustle as a grill-maker, but he's still pumping out music as fast as ever. The Houston rapper most recently gave us a freestyle over Que's "OG Bobby Johnson" with his frequent collaborator, Slim Thug.

Just the other week Drake stirred things up with the announcement of his headliners for OVO Fest, unsurprisingly, it was both OutKast and Drizzy. The OVO Fest went on to sell out tickets within two minutes of the tickets going live.
Paul Wall has been dropping new material pretty consistently these days. He and Slim Thug have had a whole lot of collaborations over the years, and Wall's new track is yet another addition to that canon.
As we saw on his instagram, Torey Lanez was brought out by the legendary Bun B for his impressive debut in Houston. If that wasn't enough, Torey brought out Kirko Bangz before a very excited audience, to perform "Know What's Up."
Stream "Gods," the latest offering from emerging Houston, Texas emcee Cory Jreamz, produced by Fergus Martin. It's an ethereal reflection on his experience in life thus far, as well as his lack of acceptance in his native H-Town.
Nipsey Hussle's "Crenshaw" tour hit Houston last night, and while he was on stage there he brought out some local rappers including Kirko Bangz, Bun B and Slim Thug, to perform some cuts alongside the West Coast rapper.
Paul Wall teams up with Bun B and D-Boss in his latest video for "I'm Real You Fake". The very-Houston visual has a crime narrative going throughout, though the details are unclear.Watch Paul Wall Feat.
