Which Houston Rappers Deserve Their Own Streets?

The hip-hop world is a less than sensible place - lots of times, you're even required to clarify when bad means bad and when bad means good - so once a week we're going to get with a rapper and ask them to explain things. Have something you always wanted to ask a rapper? Email [email protected].

This Week's Rapper: Authentic Snoopy

This Week's Subject(s): Naming local streets after Houston rappers

Ask A Rapper: The question here is three-pronged: Which six Houston rappers deserve to have streets in town named after them, why do they deserve it, and where would those streets be? Got it? Cool.

Authentic Snoopy: First off, I'm an avid listener of the late Big Pun and could understand the push by his people to get him recognized in such a way. But when it comes to Houston artists, I'm honored to be able to give my two cents on such a topic. Scrutiny is somewhat expected due to other artist opinions. My list is in no certain order.
