One thing Houston rappers are proficient in-besides rapping great-is eating well. Many of the more influential artists were/are big and fat: Fat Pat, Big Pokey, Big Moe, Big HAWK, Big Mello, and Big Steve. Even DJ Screw was a husky man.
That's not to say that their weight was ever an issue, Houstonians just love their Southern eats. It's a source of pride. Like Fat Tony once said: "In other countries, you ain't poppin' unless you're a bit chubby. That represents wealth and good living." So, in honor of Thanksgiving, we've made a list of Houston hip-hop songs that reference southern comfort food and the restaurants that have been serving it for decades.
