Houston's history is dotted with albums that, fairly or not, have been swept aside. We'll examine them here. Have an album that you think nobody knows about but should? Email [email protected].
Doughbeezy Reggie Bush and Kool-Aid (Self-released, 2010)
Doughbeezy is, at the moment, one of the city's brighter points of light. He raps fast and with a very distinct swerve, his tone settling in somewhere around the pinched-tenor flagpole.
He has been grown in the hard soil of Southeast Houston, and over the course of about six months has gone from having his name followed with a question mark (Doughbeezy?) to an exclamation point (Doughbeezy!).
Reggie Bush and Kool-Aid is his first full-length effort. There are bits of brilliance on there and there are bits on there that are not brilliant; fortunately, there are far more of the former than the latter.
