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.

The Austin hip-hop scene, since day one, has been a diverse one. For every backpack lyricists or abstract thinker’s rapper, you’ll find a street-wise, school of hard knocks rapper counterpart. Recently, the homie Dominican Jay posted a video for Nevermind from Austin-based T$0, and it definitely caught my attention in terms of that street vibe. The prolific Eric Dingus provides the production assist for the onslaught of bars, and the always on point team at Grind Life Films dropped a heavy dose of dope aesthetic touches on straightforward performance and candid footage. There’s no need for extra flare or thrills on this one… this is hard hitting product for heads that can deal with the real. You know the drill… likes, comments, shares and support are always welcome to our local creatives.

You already know what it is when it’s League of Extraordinary G’z affiliated. Domincan Jay has been killing it lately, and this go round he brings in S.Dot for the verbal assist, Eric Dingus for the track and Chino Chase for the visuals. Trill Shit is good old fashion street talk from the blocks and back alleys. Raw rap is where it’s at, and these cats definitely know where it’s at.
