Throwback Thursday - Steak X Shrimp Vol. 1 by Le$
Houston often gets overlooked for its unique place in hip hop. Back in the early 2000's, Houston made their national mark with artists such as Paul Wall, Slim Thug, and Mike Jones. Of course you can not overlook the legends like UGK and Dj Screw, but Houston has always been a slept on city when it comes to musical influence. Artists like Drake, A$AP Rocky, and Travis Scott have all cited that Houston has played a role in their sound. In 2014, Le$ released Steak x Shrimp Vol. 1. Le$ really did a great job of incorporating his style into that classic Hosuton sound. If you have not heard of Le$, this mixtape is the perfect listen to see if you will enjoy his music or not. He embodies his own sound while still sticking to his Houston roots. Le$ has smoothe features from Paul Wall, Slim Thug, and Curren$y on the tape. The most intriguing part of this tape is his chopped and screwed mix as an interlude by DJ Mr Rogers. If you are unfamiliar with Houston hip hop, this tape does the a great job of embodying it into 15 tracks.
