As Joe Budden and Charlamagne tha God recently stated in their year-end wrap-up, lyricism is back in a big way these days. That sentiment is definitely true in regards to the Austin hip-hop scene as well. For anyone doubting, exhibit A comes in the form of the latest single from Dowrong of DSR/ALVMNI/LOEG’z.
