If you had to put me on the spot with an Austin hip-hop top five, DDotElles will constantly make that list. My man is consistently dropping some of the most thought-provoking hip-hop coming out of the south, let alone Austin. His newest single, Sepia, is certainly not new ground for the last year or so, as ageism and the generational divide has been a hot button topic for hip-hop. What makes Sepia different, however, is its clever approach to stressing the need for understanding of what came before you and how it allows you to move ahead, among many other points that it stresses. Props to DDotElles, Arthur Castro and the ill beat by 3Zone$. Share this, but not until you give it a few deep listens for yourself.
