There aren't enough words to express how much we love this song! The production, the performance, the melody and lyrics are all top notch.

Slim Thug, "Houston" feat. Paul Wall & Chamillionaire
Wow. This track k-n-o-c-k-s. The bass … it just rattles your bones. For that reason, we are all over this song. Call it a guilty pleasure if you will. We're sure that sampling the NFL on Fox theme song will be hit or miss for many of you. Whatever side of the fence you're on, you just can't deny that beat! This is one of the best "rep my city" songs we've heard.
Ghostwridah, "Mrs. Wridah"
There is no subject that Miami based Ghostwridah can't tackle with style and substance. This latest leak is his retelling of meeting "Mrs. Wridah."
