Everybody's getting in the rap game! Hot on the heels of this UH street paean to a new parking garage comes "the Transit Boyz," Metro's rappin' kidz.
Some years back, we enumerated ten of the most, um, revealing moments in white hip-hop history. While Metro's effort is not quite up to that standard, why is that in a city with one of the top rap scenes in the world, the best we can apparently come up with is a lame rip-off of Licensed to Ill.
Shit's been wack since '88, yo.

The Transit Boyz hotly anticipated CD from MTA Records, "Not on My Bus," has been leaked to the Internet prematurely. Referred to as the hottest new Hip-Hop act since the Beastie Boys, this group of young up-and-coming MCs are taking rap back to its roots...straight outta H-Town.
Now, they want to give you, the public, an inside look at "How We Roll."
Metro, always "flossin'" that "mad" slang...
