Tuck It Like You Mean It
Big Tuck, Dallas's answer to the much-hyped Houston hip-hop juggernaut, just might be single-handedly spearheading the surge in Big D's rap rep. Tuck's the lead artist on T-Town, which inked a deal earlier this year with Universal for a fat $7 million (he talks about it here). Big Tuck's album, Tha Absolute Truth, drops December 17.
As this could be the guy who puts Dallas hip-hop on the map--that's what he says--we suggest you check out the just-released preview video of Truth's first single "I Know You Want That," featuring Chamillionaire and Tum Tum. You know you want it. --Jonanna Widner
