Big Moves :: CAPYAC Enlists RuDi Devino For ‘Fade Out’

Austin-based wordsmith RuDi Devino has been having a good run.  After finding success with SubKulture Patriots and Retr0gRaDe, he is continuing to find success as a solo act.  Enter CAPYAC, who have enlisted RuDi for a guest verse on the extremely catchy Fade Out.  The guest verse got merc’d, and hopefully, this will lead to bigger and better things for all parties involved.  Here’s to local artists continuing to make big moves and improving their status.

Realest Estate :: Retr05pect And Friends Go In On ‘The Real Estate Sessions’

a1383745413_10

With so much talent in the Austin hip-hop scene, it’s amazing that we don’t see more producer-led projects featuring the best of their MC affiliates from track to track.  Ruler Why comes to mind, and I’m sure I’m forgetting others, but the numbers aren’t as high as they potentially could be.  Retr05pect, however, looks as if he’s attempting to skew that data with the release of the rock solid project The Real Estate Sessions, a project rooted in the discovery of a 45″ record collection at an estate sale.  The production throughout this project is top notch, as one would expect Retr05pect production to be.. it’s paced well, the skits provide just enough breathing room between song groupings, and the choices for MCs were right on the money.  You’ll find some of my favorite people on these tracks : Click-ClackMuggzy FlowzScuareno1mportantRudi DeVino, and Black DaVinci all spit quality bars and concepts.  I’m looking forward to keeping this one heavy in my DJ rotations.

Dynamite Duo :: Retr0gRaDe Touch Down

Retr0spect kills on the beats.  Rudi Devino handles the mic duties.  The final result, Retr0gRaDe, is a breath of fresh air coming out of the Austin hip hop scene.  The group’s self-titled debut album is DOPE.  These two make one hell of a collaboration.. definitely looking forward to seeing them live, hoping they have room for guest bars on a future release.

The Golden Moment :: ‘Finally’, By Big Package And EVERYONE

Anom and Brokebread are good dudes.  The music they make collectively as Big Package is dope.  Over the years, they’ve worked with a who’s who of talented Texas hip-hop artists.  Finally is their opportunity to showcase the love they’ve shown and been shown… enjoy it, share it, and hope there will be another collaboration album in the future!
