In the past four years, the Dallas, TX rap scene has brought us an interesting mix of artists. On one hand, we have “talent” like the GS Boyz known for being the creators of every white girl’s favorite dance moves the Booty Dew and the Stanky Legg. I certainly can’t think of any other moves that allow me to lean wit it and drop wit it quite like the BD and SL but let’s be real, these guys were never going to change the rap game. Around that same time, some true Texas talent emerged on the scene. Paris Pershun and Slim Gravy are an up-and-coming rap duo better known as A.Dd+. They have been dropping mixtapes since 2009 but they received mainstream media props in 2011 when they released their debut LP, When Pigs Fly, which is produced entirely by Dallas producer, Picnictyme. A few days ago, they finally dropped a track off their upcoming release, DiveHiFlyLo: The Mixtape, which is also produced by their go-to, Picnictyme. Suitcases has that old-school rap sound with a simplistic beat and repetitive, sythy keyboard sounds. It’s another A.Dd+ banger!
Word on the web is that these guys killed at SXSW last year so I’m hoping they’re back at it again this year. Wait And Scene is going to “pack it up” can give you that new news straight from downtown Austin!
