Welcome back to Turning the Screw, Rocks Off's weekly rap post. It probably won't rhyme, at least most of the time. E-mail tips to [email protected]. Thanks, homies.Single of the Week: "Feel It In The Air" (Lil' Flip's Haiti Tribute)
Solid stuff here.
Support the independent voice of Houston and
help keep the future of the Houston Press free.
Wire to Wire
Bun B - who headlines the "Houston 4 Haiti" relief concert with Slim Thug, Paul Wall and Trae at Warehouse Live at 4 p.m. today (yes, today) - released a new mixtape. Or he didn't. We're not sure. It's called the No Mix Tape, so that's kind of confusing. Also, rather than releasing the tape in its entirety he released the songs individually every few days or so. It's really been inconvenient. But it's still a nice little teaser for his new album (due in March).
As a couple, Jay-Z and Beyonce brought in $122 million from June to June. That's great. Or awful. It could be either. But we do know it's definitely one of those.
Trae has been just about everywhere lately, building buzz for his new album. He seems to be featured on a new song each week, and that's cool. With that said, we'll just go ahead and pretend like we didn't hear that song he featured on for Soulja Boy.
KEEP THE HOUSTON PRESS FREE...
