Seems there are two vastly different camps developing in the Dallas hip-hop scene these days. For starters, there's the heavily club-focused set featuring the likes of Dorrough, Play-N-Skillz, Trai'D, Inertia, Big Chief and others. Then there's the underground movement being pushed by progressive acts like Sore Losers, A.Dd+, Killa MC and the like.
And, no offense to the former, but regular readers of DC9 will know that we're quite fond of the latter camp. It's not hard to see why, either: With inventive beats and unique flows, this set's pushing the boundaries of the Dallas scene. And they're releasing some incredibly forward-thinking, and yet widely appealing, songs in the process.
A new song that popped up in our inbox yesterday proves no exception to this rule. Over a beat provided by Blue of Sore Losers, a new collaborative calling itself Team Texas -- which features Killa MC, A.Dd+, femme fatale Ni Taylor, Myneiss and MC John E Specs -- offers up a retro-nodding but progressive nonetheless track that seems intent on garnering recognition from fans local and beyond. No surprise to hear that the song's called "The New Generation," then.
