Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

We were idly trolling around the Houston Association of Realtors Web site the other day and came across this, um, as a real estate agent might put it, "near North Side charmer" at 417 Bishop St.

The house itself is less than amazing, but the soundtrack Muzak on the "virtual tour" is pretty damn chill. It reminded us of something... And then it hit us: Devin the Dude. This sounds so much like one of his tracks it set us to freestyling about reefer and beer in the office. 

"Lacville '79"

So sure, this house may be a drab 80-year-old abode with bars on the windows and window units, barely a pot to boo-boo in, and hardly any room to stash the Lacville '79, but thanks to the music, all Rocks Off sees is ice-cold Budweiser, purple haze hanging over the living room, and images too risque to print on a family blog.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
