Houston rapper and 808 Mafia member Nephew Texas Boy returns today with the release of his new album The Pack Landed At 8:08. The seven track project is executive produced by Southside and TM88 of 808 Mafia and locks in features from Mojo, Waka Flocka and Stalley.
Nephew Texas Boy, also known as Nephy 3X hails from Houston's famous Trinity Garden's neighborhood. His first big single hit the airwaves back in 2004 when the rapper was a newcomer to Atlanta and recorded "Icy" with then small time acts Gucci Mane and Zaytoven.
The rapper told Mass Appeal that this particular project got it's name from an encounter with his weedman.
Basically it’s like this: I was sitting with myself one day and I was rolling me a blunt and I realized I’d ran out of weed. So I called the weed man. And the weed man pulled up at 8:08. Coincidentally I’m an 808 Mafia member. So I said “You know what? The pack landed at 8:08.” That’s how we gon’ hit it. The package is gonna deliver at everybody front door.
Check out the new release from Nephew Texas Boy and stay tuned for more from the 808 Mafia.
