Remember The Ballaticians' Full Course?

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].

The Ballaticians Full Course (Self-released, 2010)

The Ballaticians are a new-ish rap group. They're made up by rappers Dista da Doughboy, Dez, XL, J Rich and Don Casanova. In addition to that, they've also got a large, large network of supporters, a similar business model to Trae's Assholes By Nature corporation.

Released in March 2010, Full Course is a gangster rap album without being entirely a gangster rap album. It's best enjoyed at either a very high volume late at night or as low-level background music while you play video games.
