It's a good time for Houston rap, with the young guys -- Maxo Kream, BeatKing, Travi$ Scott -- making waves and the older generation staying as reliable as ever. That classic Houston sound never seems to sour. Original Screwed Up Click member Lil Keke has recently released his latest album, Aba IV. Though this post arrives a couple of days after the Oct. 7th release, the 13-track album is certainly worth checking out. If you haven't already, find the Aba IV stream below and purchase it here

The album features both the new talent, BeatKing and Propain, as well as the vets, such as Slim Thug, Paul Wall, and Z-Ro. Such cross-generation respect is part of the reason Houston's thriving.
