Houston Can Believe in the Sauce Twinz

MIXTAPE OF THE WEEK: Sauce Twinz, In Sauce We Trust Should you believe in The Sauce Twinz?

It's hard to exactly pinpoint when the Sauce Twinz leapfrogged over plenty of other names to sit at the precipice of local stardom. In their eyes, they were already stars on a street level and have just translated it to the rap arena. Sauce Walka and Sancho Saucy aren't literal twins, yet they act like brothers; watching them together is akin to watching the members of Voltron.

Walka in public is loud, engaging and hard to miss. Saucy, sometimes stoic, yet "on" when the light turns green, both in the booth and in public It's how records like "Errbody" immediately become Sauce Twinz records, and how Walka's adlibs become catchy whether it's drug, blood or pimp lingo or more. The Twinz are street superheroes, complete with catchphrases and a signature sound.
