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

Here's the title track of London/Houston underground MC/guitarist Nosaprise's CD, which will be released on Speakerboxx night at the Mink on April 27.

You can’t go wrong with “I Was Made to Love Her,” one of the most infectious singles in American history. It provides a good balmy backdrop for Nosa’s crisp, almost metallic flow. I heard him perform this at one of Shady Tavern’s Secret Saturday shows a few weeks back, and it sounded no less like a hit in that setting than it does here. Love the nod to John Denver halfway through. The only thing that could make it better would be a bridge – the verses and chorus are great, but they start to wear out their welcome towards the end.

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.
