Playdough, J. Rhodes
Last week, we put the spotlight on Playdough and J. Rhodes, two Dallas emcees with new albums out. Playdough's Writer Dye: Deux or Die is a sample-heavy celebration of popular music and rap's interpretative nature, whereas J. Rhodes' Oak Cliff Huxtable reps the local scene a bit. Opener Ty City dropped his excellent new mixtape, Good Look on the Listen, this summer, and Dustin Cavazos is prepping his new one, In and Out of Sleep, for release later this fall. Add in VA the Gray, D. Hayes, DJ Niro and DJ M Knight, and you've got one fine seasonal display.
