During the time of working on this list we had a pretty bad event happen in the south by the name of “Hurricane Harvey”. Harvey really did some damage to Huston, Texas and left a lot of families with no home and even stuck because practically the whole city became flooded. While watching the news I see a guy going around on his boat helping to rescue citizens. As they zoomed in you see it was this guy Trae Tha Truth. One thing I can say about Texas hip-hop is since I can remember they have always stuck together and tried to help one another.
Texas has always had a sound that in southern hip-hop you can pick out at any point. On this record you can still hear that sound with a mix of the new sound added by Young Thug. Most of the time I hear records from that area and they are either a slower delivery or “Chopped & Screwed”. But Tae came with a much faster delivery on this and It fits well. If you want to truly taste a bit of southern hip-hop you cant do it without a record like this.
