Default devin the dude

I know that the South, Houston especially, gets overlooked by most casual rap fans, but I can't figure out why this is. They've got some of the smoothest rappers and sickest producers in the country, and Devin certainly makes a strong case for Houston's scene. If you've never heard of him then you're really missing out, he's got this great r&b type flow and usually has great beats too. My favorite album is The Dude, anyone else a fan?

I've heard of this guy but I haven't given much of a listen. My favorite track I've heard is cutcha up, the lyrics are pretty ridiculous

This guy doesn't get enough attention. Always drops a great verse if he's featuring on a track and his albums are amazing. Layed back style and the beats usually compliment this well. Just Tryin' Ta Live was one of my favourite albums for a long time, got it imported from the USA back when I was like 16. Some of his lyrics are hilarious too, doesn't take himself too seriously like 99% of hip hop artists out there and has the rare ability in hip hop to be self deprecating.

Keep it up Devin!

if you want some of the illest of Houston Scarface or Z-Ro is some of the sickest. But they're different than Devin....Devin is on some chill tip.

I liked his one album, I think it was called Just Tryin' To Live? Or something like that?
