No. 20: Xrabit & Damaged Good$ -- "Follow The Leader"
Seems like forever ago that Damaged Good$ released its debut record with the help of London-based producer Xrabit,
who discovered the North Texas rapping duo of Coool Dundee and Theodore
Beard by scouring MySpace. In actuality, it's just been nine months;
the collaborative release, Hello World, saw its release in March. Since then, Damaged Good$ has built up a reputation in the local scene as one of the liveliest, most entertaining performers around town. Of course, a couple mentions in Spin and Urb haven't hurt either.
