League Of Extraordinary G'z Pack Power Of The Closed Fist

Each Wednesday or thereabouts, Rocks Off arbitrarily appoints one lucky local performer or group "Artist of the Week," bestowing upon them all the fame and grandeur such a lofty title implies. Know a band or artist that isn't awful? Email their particulars to [email protected].

In the three-year-history of the Artist of the Week column, only twice have we featured someone or some act that was not entirely Houston-based, and one of those times was because a hurricane was destroying the city and we hastily abandoned ship. Today makes three.

Everyone, the League of Extraordinary Gz. The League, everyone.

The LXGz is a hip-hop corporation that splits citizenship between Houston (yuss!) and Austin (throw-up noises). We'd actually nabbed one of their CDs from a clothing store several months ago on account of the flyness of the cover, but upon hearing that they weren't homegrown, we immediately smashed it into a trillion tiny pieces and set them all on fire one by one.

KEEP THE HOUSTON PRESS FREE... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
