Delo, Propain, OG Ron C & More Usher In The Weekend
Welcome, welcome. Recently, we were reminded that the third installment of the Houston Press Underground Hip-Hop Awards is but a scant couple of weeks away. Yip, yip.
So, prepping for that, let's run through some music that maybe may have skipped past your ears. Let's go 4-3-2-1 style.
Above, Delo lenses the dusty-mouth brilliance of "Ghetto Boy," which appeared on last year's Hood Politics Vol. 1. We've been on a bit of a crusade lately trying to coming up with some excellent nicknames for him. The best one so far: Delomite. But that doesn't feel like it's the one. More to come, for certain. Oooh, since we're here...
Propain continues to apply indirect pressure to Delo's Best Mixtape of the Year title by dangling his forthcoming tape, Dangerous Minds, in front of all of his Twitter followers. Above is his very good, very aggro version of "Otis." And here he spars with Z-Ro and Short Dawg on "H-Town."
Take FLOSS, John Dew, J. Austin and E. Dot, give them a microphone, then step the fuck back. They'll take care of the rest. (To rate their performances here: Dew > Floss > Austin = E. Dot.)
Rap-A-Lot's extra-guttery Fame Sity picked apart the "I'm On One" beat.
