Remember Dante Higgins' School Boy Music?

Houston's history is dotted with albums that, fairly or un, have been swept aside. We'll examine them here. Have an album that you think nobody knows about but should? Email [email protected].

Dante Higgins School Boy Music (Self-released, 2010)

Dante Higgins is a baby-faced college kid with grown-man ambitions, yet another gifted MC fighting for air in Houston's thick-with-talent rap landscape. His appeal seems preordained - he's smart and funny and clever and judicious and hip and, in a very short amount of time, has learned to piece together all of those things into a fairly bump-free rap persona. School Boy Music is his third mixtape in his lifetime.
