It's Impossible to Recap Every Houston Rap Release from 2013, But That Won't Stop Us From Trying

Can one man mention every 2013 Houston rap release worth mentioning?

OG Ron C and DJ Candlestick fully legitimized the new era of chopped-and-screwed music with their Chopped Not Slopped brand. Their revamping of DJ Screw's sound for a younger listenership has been one of my favorite storylines of the past couple of years, and I can't think of one day that's gone by that I didn't at least attempt to listen to a Chopped Not Slopped tape. They are wonderful.

The mesmerizing B L A C K I E did what the mesmerizing B L A C K I E does — mesmerize, basically — with his 0 Time For Fear cassette tape (only $5, bitches) and his Only 4 the Real digital download (only $10, bitches). Tawn-P and Preemo formed a rap group called All Day and released three EPs over three months, but not nearly enough people paid attention.

The Aspiring Me's self-titled effort fully lived up to the (unfair) expectations that come with being the son of a local legend (Big Mello). The Freshest MCs (Undergravity + Dante Higgins) snuck a very good tape in right at the back end of December. And more and more and more.

So many guys and girls did very cool things these past 12 months that this article could be 100,000 words long and that probably still wouldn't be enough. Hoodstar Chantz (a personal favorite), Sho Stoppa (whose next tape I am especially excited about), UZOY, hasHBrown, Rob Gullatte, Show, RDRKVN, Sherro, Short Dawg, Mug, J-Dawg and more and more and more are all doing good things.

Not enough space here is a good problem to have. It could be the opposite.

We could be Dallas.

The Maven, theRAPuetic & Plantation Rebellion. Don't write about local rap if you aren't gonna at least mention K. Ask 90% of the guys in your article & they'll tell you K-Rino is the gospel round here. Then again 97.9 is probably one of your favorite "hip hop" stations, so you've lost all your credibility with me.

Seriously Shea Serrano? Every Houston Rap Release from 2013? You should have your journalism credentials REVOKED! The SPC's very own K-Rino has been destroying the mic & mc's for close to 30 years. No disrespect to most on your list but these guys have been scramblin' around just to release 1 album & my man K released 3 this past year. The Maven, theRAPuetic & Plantation Rebellion. Don't write about local rap if you aren't gonna at least mention K. Ask 90% of the guys in your article & they'll tell you K-Rino is the gospel round here. Then again 97.9 is probably one of your favorite "hip hop" stations, so you've lost all your credibility with me.
