Houston is a well-known hip-hop hub, and that's largely due to the music of DJ Screw. By pioneering the chopped and screwed remixing method, Screw is one of the first dudes to make really slow rap music cool.
Houston legend Trae tha Truth has been teasing us in the lead up to Tha Truth with such well-titled bangers as "Tricken Every Car I Get" feat. Future & Boosie and "I Don't Give A Fuck" feat. Rick Ross.
Over the course of his career, Travi$ Scott has often been accused of copying others' styles, whether those of Kid Cudi or his mentor, Kanye West, or more recently, Atlanta's trap rappers.
Today, Sauce Twinz make good on their hype by dropping a joint mixtape with Sosamann called Sauce Theft Auto. Here's a highlight from the project called "OMS" (Oh My Sauce). It features Boosie Badazz and was produced by Jrag 2x.
Drake's annual Houston Appreciation Weekend closed out last night, and while it's received some criticism from the local scene, Drake certainly garnered a warm reception at his final performance.
Sauce Walka Calls Out Drake For Houston Appreciation Weekend, Drake Responds May 25, 2015 at 01:12pm
As many people noticed, Drake's Houston Appreciation Weekend line-up and appearances contained a surprising lack of Houston-bred artists.
Drake had a pretty big weekend, with his second annual Houston Appreciation event going down (on top of which, a few songs sprung a leak onto the web). We've already seen a few photos from HAW, and now we've got footage from Drake's inaugural&nb
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.
