Following up on the Picnictyme-hosted mix for last summer's Kixpo sneaker exposition, DJs Sober and A-One put together a mixtape for last weekend's H-Town Sneaker Summit--and it features a handful of Dallas rappers on it (alongside Lil Wayne, Nas, Jay-Z, Cool Kids, Alicia Keys and more).
Released under the duo's combined Top Notch banner, the mix, which you can download here, boasts tracks from Dorrough, Ty City and even a chopped-and-screwed remix of Erykah Badu's "The Healer."
While it hits all coasts, the mix is something of a Texas-meets-New York affair for the most part, with the Keys/Jay-Z "Empire State of Mind" followed up by Nas' "New York State of Mind," and other Big Apple artists like Raekwon and Sa-Ra Creative Partners popping up alongside Lone Star rappers like Chalie Boy, Slim Thug, Candi Redd and, of course, UGK.
