Its been 8 years since we lost the 5 Star General of the SUC. Big HAWK is remembered by all as a great person and an amazing rapper. He was truly loved by all that knew him personally and through his music. He was able to touch people across the globe with his gift of gab, and to ease the pain of his loss, we celebrate the memory of his life, and how he reached us all. No matter your relationship with the man, you could feel the love he possessed for people. In a world so cold, the best way to honor his memory is to live how he showed us to. If we…

RIP A.C. Chill

The legendary AC Chill of the South Park Coalition passed away Dec. 14 2005. 8 years later, we still honor his memory. AC left us with some great rhymes that helped solidify the importance of the SPC in Houston history. The first crew, the hardest crew out the H. The SPC hold strong to AC’s memories, memorializing him in song and in album artwork. At 8pm tonight we pay tribute to AC Chill on Optimo Radio. So make sure to tune in and feel the real. RIP AC Chill

R.I.P. Mama Wes

PimpCandWesMama

Sad news from the UGK camp, Pimp C’s mother, Mama Wes has passed away this morning. She had been in intensive care the last few days in a SE Texas hospital, and while details are yet to come in, we are all mourning the loss of a woman who stood strong and proud when she lost her son, and my personal favorite rapper, Pimp C, back in 2007. Our prayers are with the Butler family and all those close to her. If you have never heard My Angel, by Pimp C, it was a song he made dedicated to his mother. Make sure to give it a play in honor of them. RIP Mama Wes…

Classic Wednesday Pick of the Week – Too Much Trouble – Bringin’ Hell On Earth

too much trouble

  Too Much Trouble, aka The Baby Geto Boys group, we’re a lesser known group from the Rap-A-Lot days, but despite having the game groups like the Geto Boys recieved, they still managed to make their mark in Underground history.
