While not necessarily known for a high crime rate, Austin most definitely has its fair share of cats who can both talk that talk and walk that walk when it comes to hood moves. When it comes to my personal preferences, no crew is representing that sound for Austin better than the League of Extraordinary G’z, and lately, the homie Dominican Jay has been putting out banger track after banger track. The latest is another collaboration with $.Dot (who is quickly becoming another one of my favorite local MCs), and with the vocal assist from Sertified and a monster of a track from Ball Team, Dirty Money is another Austin anthem in the making. Check this one out, as it’s most certainly worth your time and efforts, and if you dig it, leave a like and a comment, and share it around for others!

I’ve been a fan of what the League of Extraordinary G’z and all those connected have done for a long time now, and one of the main reasons I love what they do is because of the energy they bring to their music. You can tell that these cats speak from deep experience, and that they stand behind every word spoken. All of these aspects are on 10 for the latest release, Gang Sings, a banger courtesy of $.Dot, DoWrong and Dominican Jay. As a longtime fan of groups like Compton’s Most Wanted, South Central Cartel, and rappers like DJ Quik, this track checks all the proper boxes for me. The video is dynamic, with excellent camerawork and direction guided by Super Thing, and the Eric Dingus track matches the energy level of all three MCs, who straight snap on each verse. This one is an instant classic, so get in on the ground floor with the likes, comments and shares, because folks are gonna get hip quick to this one.

Reality rap is the closest thing to a documentary in the world of music, in my opinion, and Austin is a city that thrives on that aesthetic. Recently, Austin-based MC $.dot and producer Eric Dingus joined forces for the T$O (Trill $hit Only) project, and their whole vibe is all about the realness. In their video for lead single Only The Trill, $.dot talks about the pedigree of people he has in his corner and has aligned himself with, all over a Mobb Deep-esque beat by Eric Dingus. The video looks like a million bucks thanks to the expertise of Super Thing Productions, with smooth tracking shots and artistically framed setups meant to further the written messages. This one is definitely worth your time, so definitely check it out, leave a like and a comment, and share it around.

It’s a tough climb when you’re trying to escape the belly of the beast. Domincan Jay, along with League of Extraordinary G’z brethren $ Dot and Reggie Colby tell you all about it in the new video for Under The Jail. It’s a tale as old as time itself, but with new faces partaking daily. Do what you can to get by, and pray that you don’t get taken under.
