    Two thousand five seems like eons ago. That's when Houston rap, if you'll remember, exploded into the nation's consciousness, caricaturizing the 713 as a candy-painted city of overindulgence and megalomania. Mind you, Houston was known to hip-hop ...

    Los Magnificos: Like a Live H-Town Mixtape
