Nowadays we take for granted that Southern rappers rank among the most popular and innovative artists in all of hip-hop, but a half-dozen who helped things get that way happen to be coming to NRG Arena on Saturday. All of the great Southern rap cities save one (Atlanta) will be represented, thanks to the rapid-fire cadences of trailblazing MCs from the great New Orleans houses of Cash Money (Juvenile) and No Limit (Mystikal); the Memphis-smooth player chronicles of 8Ball & MJG; and gritty thug-life club anthems of Miami OG Trick Daddy. Finally, holding it down for the home team are arguably the two greatest rappers ever to claim the HTX: Bun B, whose post-UGK career has seen both streetwise solo albums and a gig as H-Town’s unofficial mayor (plus that Rice professorship); and Scarface, simply one of the best rap wordsmiths ever to draw breath, from his 1991 Geto Boys classic “Mind Playin’ Tricks On Me” all the way through last year’s Deeply Rooted.
