Dallas' Play-N-Skillz, a duo of half-Venezuelan, half-Argentinian brothers who both rap on their own songs and produce tracks for others, aren't exactly newcomers to the national hip-hop game--they produced and co-wrote Chamillionaire's huge hit "Ridin'", and they're the beatsmiths behind "Got Money," one of the sure-to-be hits off Lil Wayne's Tha Carter III.
So it doesn't really come as a huge surprise to see that the most recent issue of The Source--the magazine that bills itself as "The Bible of hip-hop"--took some time to meet up with the duo in Dallas for a full-page spread in its most recent issue. Play and Skillz showed off their favorite Dallas hotspots to the mag for its "Whut's Really Hood" feature. Check it out after the jump. --Pete Freedman
