Remember Onehunnidt's Legacy of a Legend?

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].

Onehunnidt Legacy of a Legend (Self-released, 2011)

Remember Onehunnidt? He's the uber-artist that was turned loose here back in May. At that time, he made mention of J.J., his younger brother who was murdered in February 2010.

Legacy of a Legend, released earlier this summer, is Onehunnidt's musical eulogy for J.J. It is poignant and effective and cathartic. You could argue that there are good parts and there are bad parts, but no one can argue that there are any parts that are not without intent or emotion. And that makes even the imperfections in Legacy interesting.
