League Of Extraordinary G'z Pack Power Of The Closed Fist

Each Wednesday or thereabouts, Rocks Off arbitrarily appoints one lucky local performer or group "Artist of the Week," bestowing upon them all the fame and grandeur such a lofty title implies. Know a band or artist that isn't awful? Email their particulars to introducingliston@gmail.com.

In the three-year-history of the Artist of the Week column, only twice have we featured someone or some act that was not entirely Houston-based, and one of those times was because a hurricane was destroying the city and we hastily abandoned ship. Today makes three.

Everyone, the League of Extraordinary Gz. The League, everyone.

The LXGz is a hip-hop corporation that splits citizenship between Houston (yuss!) and Austin (throw-up noises). We'd actually nabbed one of their CDs from a clothing store several months ago on account of the flyness of the cover, but upon hearing that they weren't homegrown, we immediately smashed it into a trillion tiny pieces and set them all on fire one by one.

Alas, their rap effectiveness could not be entirely dismissed - the Gz are good, enjoyable, fun to listen to and, far as we can tell, not bastards. So we had some of their members answer questions about Sean Connery, what constitutes an appropriate level of G-ness and the worst song that they've ever made. Aces.

Rocks Off: Standard opener: Tell everyone everything they need to know about the League of Extraordinary Gz in exactly six words.

Reggie: Listen. It's all in the music.

Lowkey: The power of the closed fist.


RO: The most obvious thing that needs to be asked: Why oh why did you pick a bad Sean Connery movie to base your name on? We mean, if it has to be Connery-related, what about The Untouchables? Or better yet: The Finding Forresters?

Lowkey [laughs]: I still never seen the actual movie, so as far as I'm concerned you should be asking him why he named his shitty movie after them G'z from Austin.

Greezo: People don't know the white boys in the League are second cousins and Sean Connery is their great granddaddy. True story.
