(Churchy) Single of the Week:  "I Love You," Von Won



Wire To Wire




Hat tip to Lil' O and all of those that showed up for his "Put On for Your City" food drive. No word on whether or not he pepper-sprayed the food and had it lookin' all spicy. And we know this probably isn't related in any way to his 2003 release, Food On Tha Table, but it's not every day you get a chance to reference the emphatically goofy chorus of "Let's Get Fu**ed Up."  Which, inexplicably, is not on Youtube. The screwed and chopped version of "Back Back" (above) is, though.  


Condolences: MC Breed dies in his sleep.


Rico Todriguez Wright has officially changed the game as we know it: admits to shooting someone in song lyrics, gets 20 years in prison.



Ludacris says he's underrated. We're confused, does underrated mean overrated?

Too $hort has decided to name his new live band Town Bizness. We were going to make a joke about how maybe the name Bad Idea was already taken, but that's apparently not a concern for Too $hort as a quick Google search reveals that so was the name Town Bizness.

Three CDs out this week you otherwise never would have heard of (but are available on amazon.com nonetheless):


Ghostface Killah, Ghostdeini the Great


40 Cal, Leader of the New School


Onyx, Live Overseas

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
