Grit + fuzz + slowburn intensity, almost sounds like rap version of a good psych garage song. The Pimp C quote in the end doubles as both an exclamation point and a slap in the face. Tunk deserves your attention.

Mostly, The Outfit’s Ramen Noodles EP (lol it’s 17 tracks long) is about getting laid. Occasionally they also go for a ride and listen to music. Naturally a bunch of weed and whatnot is consumed in the process. And that’s fine, they pull all this off well, with easygoing charm and a congenial bird doggin’ attitude that’s not too far off from Devin & The Coughee Brothaz in their prime. But the main strength of the EP is the incredible production, all synth soundscapes and clever chops of obvious samples that reminded me of earlier Block Beattaz work. Even if The Outfit completely sucked at rapping, which they don’t, I think I would’ve still posted this – I like the beats that much.

Yung Zavey is from Houston. B. Heazy is from Dallas. They work with the incomperable Stunt-N-Dozier a whole bunch and rap quite ravishingly. These fellas make some of the only modern weed music that I find tolerable. Zavey’s Thinking Out Loud and Heazy’s Hazed and Confuzed are both well worth your time.
They linked up with our hero KD for “Tuskegee Airmen”. The ProDeuser laid down the beat for this and the mellow groove is dripping with relaxation. Download Herb, Nouns and Verbs here. Trust me on this one, playaz.
Slim and Paris fancy themselves as a new age UGK/Oukast combo… and they kinda are. With “Jumper Cables”, the duo picks up where they left off with When Pigs Fly, trading verses with fellow Dallas buddy Tunk (you should really download The Audition while you’re here. “Iceman” is the sheeeeeit) over a Picnic Tyme (the only producer I’ve ever seen them work with) trunk rattler. These guys are doing things correctly.
