That wasnt what I was trying to get at. Im just saying rap and hip-hop are nowhere near as popular as they once were. For rap, Houston is pretty good. Dallas rap is terrible, Houston rap has some bright spots.

Ever since the West Coast rap scene died, my interest in rap died with it. Either way, its simply not as popular overall anymore.

The Rap-A-Lot days were some of the best ever. Those songs never got old to me.

What is up lately with all the lame threads people are just having a bad life or something. They are just trying to get any reply they can get from a thread that is just stupid.

This is not 1945 to 1965 Houston is the 5th largest city in the country

Re-read the topic. That's not what he was talking about. It was focusing on music.

Atlanta in the past couple years has stepped it's game up lyrically. In the middle of the decade, other than TI and a couple others. Atlanta was the home of some of the most garbage known to the game ever. But they have improved. Like has Houston. I think more people relate to Atlanta's style than Houston's style. Atlanta's hip hop is easily played in the club (where Houston lacks), cars, parties, w/e.

can direct you to when Houston music scene was really good and even some classic records. Artist and groups like Geto Boys/ Rap-A-Lot back in the 80s and early 90s. SPC back in the early 90s. Screwed up Click and all the solo artist that dropped albums. Swisha House. Boss Hogg Outlaws. Devin the Dude. Scarface. Chamillionaire(older Cham). UGK(from PAT but there just as much Houston based artist).Z-Ro. I mean really good music.
Yeah but none of them have a prayer to blow up these days. They all made great music during the 90s and early 00s. But as of now, what artists from Houston will cause the scene to be more popular than it actually is. Chamillionaire will most likely never have major mainstream success again. Devin either. Face doesn't need it. Bun B is hanging in there. But what else? I think that's what A&M was focusing on. Personally, I think Hi-Stakez and Rob Jay is the one that could bring some attention back to Houston again. I also liked what I hear from Marcus Manchild.

bun b is probably the most respected man in southern rap, right now. as long as the southern movement is at the forefront, he'll always have a job and plenty of connections

So, you like that corny stuff from Roscoe Dash, Travis Porter, Soulja Boy, etc. Wocka is ok, but he isn't the best. I places like Miami are the best in the South.

Thanks, Spade for having my back! The Rap-A-Lot stuff was just what was jumping when I was in high school from 1987-1991 and little bit after that. I am sorry if I didn't bring up the hottest hits from Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis Jr(1945-1965). I mean, I guess I was just posting to get a response. I didn't get in to screwed music because I couldn't understand it, and I thought it sounded like crap. Sorry. I do not follow music much anymore at all. I am happy with the cd's and downloads of my younger days. As far as Houston's nightlife or club scene, I wouldn't know. I have been married forever now and do not have the need anymorefor hanging out in that way. I dedicate my time to my children and my wife. That is all the nightlife I need. Now, yall checkout www.yahoo.com. There is another article there from posted yesterday not putting Houston in good favour for the job market.

Sorry, guys. I also confused this thread with the Houston Ranked #2 for Young Adults Thread. I know A&M spawned this thread(the Blow-up Thread) from the #2 thread, as they are both similar to an extent. Sorry about that and at least I am honest.
