this is a great look for our town. uncle bun, scareface, fat tony, uzoy, the niceguys, doughbeezy, rob quest, and much more in this clip – as they take you through a quick oral history of our wonderful city. check out this neat write up by brando (of day and a dream) for rocks off.
scoremore follows local emcee doughbeezy throughout his first headlining show, which ended up being quite historic: it was sold out. dough performed songs off his newly released tape, blue magic, which hit the internets earlier this month. be sure to go back and grab that.
after never having heard a single song of dough’s, i was thrown into two doughbeezy sets in a week’s time (once at Big KRIT, once at ASAP rocky) which pretty much impressed me equally. his showmanship and talent are pretty high up there, considering i have never been the biggest advocate of southern hip-hop (that’s a lie.) regardless, this long lost member of the dungeon family has a new mixtape that dropped today, blue magic. it’s a follow up to reggie bush & kool-aid, which i’ll be gravitating towards shortly.
but for now, check out my man brando’s review and download the tape.

After having caught onto Wuz Here sometime in 2010, my appreciation for K.R.I.T.’s vulnerable southern snarl was immediate. There’s just something about the man that screams ingenuity and honesty. He’s taken the absolute best (and believe me, there are only a few) things about southern rap music and ran with them, highlighting his ability to tell stories, producing incredible beats and turning heads all the while.
This show was supposed to be a release party for 4eva And a Day, his upcoming mixtape due out March 6th, but due to a push back (the original date was February 21st), K.R.I.T. kind of left himself in the dust. He had a slew of new songs to premiere and no one would know em – and surprisingly, Houston didn’t seem to mind. Review after the jump.
with blue magic on the lam for march 1st, local upstart doughbeezy is ready to keep the promo train moving. here’s the be-el-be directed video for the first single, “grind,” which follows his storytelling of the ‘come up’ in the industry.
time is flying, and we’re getting much closer to the release of my dude thurogood’s new album, brass knuckle sandwich, which he hopes to drop by february/march. “words with friends” enlists doughbeezy and killa kyleon, and remains as one of two songs with rap features on BKS. the other will feature yves of the niceguys and hash brown. so overall, this is gonna be a party and a half, bringing together some of my favorite houston artists. speaking of the niceguys, free of such fame produced the beat. download it for free via bandcamp.

while this clip is of little significance other than a performance of his song “fuck you” at the finally famous tour in austin, i wanted to introduce you to doughbeezy. a houston rapper who has been quite busy this past year, releasing a handful of videos and a mixtape by the name of reggie bush & kool-aid. get familiar with the houston artist, as you’ll be hearing more of him on WWM in the near future.
