Rest in peace Prodigy.
It’s been ten years since UGK collaborated with two other legendary duos to release this classic record.
Three 6 Mafia provided the Texas natives the perfect beat for them and Outkast to showcase their rapping talent.
One of my earliest memories of this song was during my time in San Diego for college. I was at a sports bar with a few friends. Somehow one of them made their way towards the jukebox and selected this record. The record came on and I saw people rocking out to it. The beat is infectious. It’s catchy. It’s a record that you can’t help but have fun to.
Rick Ross came into the rap game sounding like a one hit wonder because of his huge single “Hustlin’.” Luckily, that wasn’t the case.
He delivered a solid debut album with Port of Miami and eventually became a major player in rap. In fact, there were two, maybe three solid years that Ross ruled the rap world. Everything he was touched was fire. He even endured, and survived, a beef with 50 Cent.
Jeezy is dope, point blank.
When he came out, it was refreshing. His entire style was unique. His sound was monstrous. Shit, you can say that the sound he had helped birth a sub genre in the electronic music genre.
His first album is a classic. His second album was dope. His third album was great too.
His coke raps are dope, pun intended.
His ad-libs are legendary.
He was hot.
He appeared on many records in his first few years as a mainstream rapper, delivering many memorable verses in these features.
