If you don’t already know who DotdotDotdotDotdot is, now is the time to get hip, because it won’t be long before his name rings bells in the underground and beyond if he keeps dropping projects like his last few. His latest, the deeply immersive and symbolically personal Montoya, Vol. 1, continues the DotdotDotdotDotdot practice of lavish storytelling, clever lyricism and stellar beat selection. Even though Montoya, Vol. 1 is not his first foray into crafting what equates to a sonic film with deeply personal undertones in the narrative, DotdotDotdotDotdot somehow manages to continue to push that envelope forward, creating more compelling songs as time goes by. With production assists from Genius khrist, Beautiful Lou, Zachary LIght, the homie poolboi blu and MARC.SET.GO!, plus verbal appearances by Austin all-star The Teeta and rising underground star Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire, the tier quality is the highest, so definitely don’t sleep on one of the strongest releases of the year, rivaled only by the equally brilliant and more ambitious From Russia With Drugs. Check it out on your favorite streaming service or digital storefront, and most importantly, let everyone know about it.
One should never doubt the self-motivation that Kydd Jones possesses. From the jump, Kydd set out to make a name for himself in the industry in as many ways as possible, and while some of it is for clout and respect, it’s undeniable that some of it is for the money as well. That’s why, with the help of The Teeta, Kydd Jones has dropped yet another banger in the form of Checks, a bit of self-validation for the pair of self-motivated individuals. The song has swagger for days, so definitely check it out, support if you dig it, and spread it around for as many people to enjoy as possible.
Need a nice compilation of Austin artists? Perhaps one the length of a triple album, covering multiple genres, with both new and old artists from the Austin scene? Look no further than Slack Capital 3 : Slacking From Home Edition. The lineup of talent on this bad boy is massive and impressive : Spoon, The Teeta, Calliope Musicals, Sailor Poon, Click-Clack, Magna Carda, Hikes, Botany and many more all contribute. All proceeds go to the Austin Justice Coalition, so if you feel like rewarding your ears and your soul at the same time, grabbing this compilation seems like a no-brainer.
Austin has always had a hip-hop scene, be it focused upon or marginalized, but lately it’s shown levels of diversity that truly validate the strength of the scene. For an instant example of that diversity, one should look no further than the Breadshots directed visual for NextGang‘s latest, 0001. The crew, consisting of SheLovesLyrik, ImYoungin, The Teeta and Seas, put it best in the video description :
‘The very rare legendary NextGang links up with infamous Breadshots to film a lyrical gumbo that captivates listeners with variations of cadences and styles cohesively blended to cater many genres of Hip Hop wit.’
Honestly, I’d have to agree. On top of that, the transitions and visual trickery employed by Breadshots keep things lively, showcasing both his skill as a director/editor and the unique style of each MC. Check this one out, share it around, and leave a comment if you dig it!
I’m a sucker for movie imagery and references in music, especially when done cleverly. That’s why when Audrey Hepburn by SpaceMan Zack featuring The Teeta crossed my radar, I was initially intrigued. What hooked me, however, was taking a song about success, shallowness and those attempting to take advantage of you, all aspects of the famous Truman Capote novel turned Audrey Hepburn film. Add to this the fact that director T. Aubrey laced us with a frame video full of dope still shots and trippy transitions, and we’ve got a burner on our hands. Dig this one, share it around, and leave a like and/or a comment on it for sure.
Hope everyone is ready, because FLYHORSES have entered the podcast game with FlyHorseRadio. Norman Ba$e and DDotElles have taken their collaborative music project and transitioned the energy into an interview show that asks real questions and demands real answers. Episode 1 features Austin rap legend in the making The Teeta as he talks about his inspirations, his goals and what he’s been going through over the years. Props to FLYHORSES for bringing their dope vibes to the podcast game… definitely a breath of fresh air.
Consistency is an important yet often overlooked trait when it comes to building your brand. In hip hop, being consistently dope is one surefire way to set yourself ahead of the rest. If there’s one cat in Austin that is 100% on the consistently dope list, it’s The Teeta. Not only does he drop standout music that most others emulate with minimal success, but when he puts video to these tunes, he takes things to a completely new level. Mood Swings is no exception, bringing all of the trademarks you’d expect for a video from The Teeta : trippy aesthetic, hip hop tropes turned slightly on their ear, and plenty of swag without giving a damn who notices. The run has been legendary, and here’s to hoping it continues trending upward.
The Teeta has been on a creative tear the last few months or so. It seems like there’s always a new song or video dropping, and yet, each of these projects seems as if it’s had proper incubation time. One of the latest presentations, the music video Afterlife, is a track with a cloud-rap type approach, and a visual element reminiscent of the late 1970s/early 1980s aesthetic that independent filmmakers and those in the wake of the New York Factory Scene became famous for. The project grabs your attention and holds it for a few minutes without stressing a sense of immediacy or urgency, a testament to the assured approach of director Jesse Rodriguez. I have definitely enjoyed the variety of creativity coming from The Teeta, and I am curious to see where this journey continues to lead all of us.
