Propain; Ridin’ Slab
(production choices, themed content, Narration from Lil Keke made this album overall my favorite.

Nick Greer & The G’s; Nick Greer & The G’s
(Just Different, Breath of fresh air eclectic mix of sounds that hip-hop originated from, live instrumentation enhanced the sound)

Roosh Williams - Deja Roo_Times Have Changed_cover

Roosh Williams; Déjå Roo: Times Have Changed
(notable features, album controversy, more than local buzz, good visuals and singles selection)

Boss-Life-C&S

Slim Thug; Boss Life
(Comeback project aside from his last lazy mixtapes, Thugga came back lyrically harder and picked great choices for production and features, promotion/marketing #PopTrunkShop was creative and paid homage to the hustle of Houston’s underground music scene.)
