Photo by Marco Torres Nothing quite encapsulates Houston like Z-Ro's Mo City Don freestyle.
Houston is home to a booming economy. Houston is the fourth most populous city in the United States. Houston is cool.
Houston is a lot of things, home to a lot different people and cultures. And while no string of facts and qualities can quite stitch together a complete story of this city that we love, we gave it our best shot.
Here are ten signs that prove you're from Houston.
10. You spend a good portion of your day in traffic.
According to navigation systems manufacturer Tomtom, Houston has the worst traffic in Texas, but we wouldn't live anywhere else.
9. You know Z-Ro's "Mo City Don (freestyle)" by heart.
Our favorite lyrics are: "I'm H-Town to Cali, just like Robert Horry" and "Headed to Lake Charles, or headed to Lafayette/Maybe off in Alexandria, but I ain't finished yet/
I gotta make a whole I-10, By 10/Then I, do it again."

8. You love rodeo season.
There's nothing quite like seeing your favorite country artists live, eating loads of fried food and checking out cattle, all on the same lot.
