[Editor's Note: Over the next couple of weeks, I'll be presenting my favorite local songs of the year, counting down from No. 25 to No. 1, one track a day. Today, we take an in-depth look at song No. 20 on the list--and click after the jump for a free download of the track. Lastly, keep checking back to see how the list pans out, and, also after the jump, check out songs No. 40-26 in the Top 40 list that will update as it grows...]
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
haven't hurt either.
