Tow Down: Busted Rapper/Grower's Lyrical Tipoffs

The Bubba Sparxxx of Fort Bend County, Tow Down, was arrested Wednesday for using three houses as weed nurseries, where he and several associates including his older brother cultivated more than 600 marijuana plants, the U.S. Attorney's office announced today. As our sister blog Hair Balls noted earlier, this is not the first time Tow has been locked up for his green thumb; he was also arrested in 2008 and 2010.

Tow has never made much of a secret about his activities. Several songs on the Screwed Up Click associate's 2000 LP By Prescription Only practically did the DEA Agents' job for them, in fact. Eleven years ago. Here's a hint: "Slant Eyes" is not a racial slur, at least not the way Tow uses it.

"You ever get so high you smoked yourself sober?" he asks. He may have now.

From the tumbling weed we been blowin' dank/ From sunup to sundown

Joe Slaughter:

The Dirty South is what it's about/ Poin' up smokin' it out


Sippin' drank blowin' pounds/ And all the drugs I intake courtesy of Tow Down

It's the H-A-W-K/ Mr. ballin' parlay/ And smoke my life away

Big Pokey:

We got chicks and dirty tricks baby/ And that hydro is what we blow baby

Makes me wonder if Crime Stoppers 'bulks-up' on telephone operators each time he releases a new EP or performs in concert.

The caller with the most dirt gets the prize.

So it goes!
