    Dallas Rappers Pikahsso and Tahiti Bring You New Sitcom Trap House

Turns out, the Dallas-shot Trap House is a real show, at least on the Internet, and it's two episodes in. Dallas emcee Pikahsso, who was mentioned here last week for his appearance in DFW Cypher's latest ... More >>

    Tahiti Remixes Lil Wil; Big Tuck Laughs And Gets Whole City Of Houston On "Not A Stain On Me"

    ...or that's how it went down in my head. First, check Tahiti's very Nintendo-like take on Lil Wil's "My Dougie." Then hop over to Big Tuck's Myspace page and hear the newest remix to his fabulous "Not A Stain On Me," which features Paul Wall and Slim Thug among others. (There's a Dallas Remix to ... More >>

    Tahiti Talks PPT's Break-up...And Reality TV?

    We caught up with Tahiti, the "T" in the recently split Dallas hip-hop group PPT, to get his version of the events that led to the breakup and to talk about his future as a musician. His take on the cause of the breakup isn’t significantly different than Pikahsso’s and Picnic’s. Take the thr ... More >>

    PPT Has Officially Broken Up--And Picnic and Pikahsso Tell Us Why

    We first caught wind that there might be trouble in PPT's camp last week, when a post over on the DFW Hip-Hop forum hinted at some troubles between the group's members (Pikahsso, Picnic and Tahiti). Then, this morning, came this note from Quick that all but confirmed it (guess it helps when two-thir ... More >>

    Pikahsso, Picnic and Tahiti of PPT just posted their latest music video onto YouTube, and the Hal Samples-shot video version of the track "When We Was Kool" is flat-out phenomenal.

    J Dilla died earlier this year at the age of 32. On Saturday, Dallas' hip-hop community turned out to pay its last respects.
