But, on an album completely filled with gems, perhaps the most sparkling of them all is DJ Sober's contribution, a tribute to Dallas hip-hop over the years called "I'm So Dallas," in which he mashes up a whole slew of local classics into a short 105-second jaunt. It's like a history lesson, really. A nice trip down memory lane, to boot.
If you still haven't heard it, well, we've posted it after the jump so you can go and do just that. Give it a listen. Then see if you're up to this challenge: Can you name all the songs Sober included in the mix?
