Texas Hip Hop Massacre is still the most polished and legitimate introduction to
In the hip-hop world, Houston and New York are among the bigger scenes known for mixtapes--CD-Rs in which rappers perform over unlicensed samples to get their name out and make a quick buck. So at last May's Conspiracy Radio Music Awards, recognizing the best in Dallas rap, I was intrigued to find a "Best Mixtape" category." I asked a few performers at the show: How does the Dallas scene compare?
Minutes later, I held a huge stack of local hip-hop mixes in my hands. Unfortunately, most of those were stolen when I hid them in a corner while using the restroom. (Thanks, guys.)

So I put out an open call to rappers at dfwhiphop.com, the scene's biggest Internet meeting ground, and asked for help restocking my losses. Sadly, the turnout was paltry, in spite of repeated attempts to get the online community riled up. Five mixes showed up in all, and they ranged from solid (Bavu Blakes' Blazing Saddles) to shameful (Sho's The Undisputed Champ). Fortunately, two stood out as worthwhile introductions to what the local mixtape scene has to offer.

Various: Texas Hip Hop Massacre

Nice Drop Dallas Observer favorite Tahiti drops two of his best tracks, "Hip-Hop Vs. Rap" and "The Birth of Whack," which alone make this compilation worth a grab, but even better is the opening, the hottest track to yet combine locals Bavu Blakes and Money Waters. "Play the Role" attacks overhyped down-South rappers with a balance of street cred and sharp wit, as Waters spits, "Hell, I been through struggles just like any other Texas boy, I'm seekin' currency cuz I'm currently unemployed."

Then there's Voice Rock, hidden in the dead center of the compilation but bringing the most confident flow to the disc. His "Voice Rock for President" has a sparse, old-school breakbeat set off by horn blasts, and he drops Jurassic 5-leaning rhymes like, "Miss, please could you strip like Gaza, put up your Dukes of Hazzard, puffin' grass at Dealey Plaza."

The rest is a mix of great (Deadicated brings some Definitive Jux flavor on "Not Love") and played-out (Cainam mimics Bloodhound Gang on "Beer Coaster," and Mes bores with Pimp My Ride references on "Fuck Yo Car"), but even with a few slip-ups, Massacre is still the most polished and legitimate introduction to the variety of Dallas hip-hop available. Many of these rappers perform at the Gypsy Tea Room this Saturday, and I'm guessing Money Waters, Voice Rock and Cainam will have a few copies of the disc on hand, too.

very good stuff. well worth your money.
the compilation of good texas artists plus the overall feel of the album makes this cd a must for any inde. hiphop head. just the tracks from voice rock and deadicated make it worth my time but you are sure to find a few more good well put together tracks on this comp. that you'll like.
