Texas does have some big bugs, I was in the Air Force Training base outside of it, and I saw a dragon fly the size of a bird...and had to do push-ups for dodging it

I was in Lackland and why does the radio station in San Antonio always play that song "Lean like a Chulo"

yea i think everyone n their mama uses a juno 106 umm its basically a couple of the brass sounded patches on top of each other at different pitches n the intro voice sample is from an old school 80s video game...

the 2nd beat on the myspace is all MV too it has guns loading as the hi hats I recorded myself making a popping sound with my mouth n spliced in random recordings of my noisy ass ac n me brushing my clothes and wrinkling plastic bags as the in between noises recorded directly into the MV, bass is from mo phatt...

Hahaaaa I'm in H-Town but I'm originally from Dallas. I've only visited San Antonio so I've only seen the better side of that. Yea u're gonna hear a lot of Mexican rap here. You'll learn the ropes pretty quick tho, well I do. I go to a place and quickly find out the places not to go or things not to do by making the mistakes of going there or doing that.

Lol @ .Powell. yea those drangon flies could be good target practice.

I used to live in SA Town. It's a huge city, there's more going on than you think there, I don't think that it's organized. There used to be a studio called Rhapsody there, over by Northstar. I got a boy Mad 1, and his crew they are performing on the regular, he was telling me about some cat called question MySpace.com - QUESTION? - San Antonio - Hip Hop / Rap / Soul - www.myspace.com/question.

Here's some links to some cats I know there:

MySpace.com - Fury - SAN ANTONIO, Texas - Hip Hop / Lyrical / Rap - www.myspace.com/furythepoet
MySpace.com - MAD-1 AKA M-WIGG(Y) - SAN ANTONIO, Texas - Hip Hop / Hip Hop / Hip Hop - www.myspace.com/mad1akamwiggy

I lived there for like 6 years, it's twice the size now!

Here for the gear
 

i live in san antonio about 3 minutes from north star

lotta hot spots, just make sure you keep the radio off...its garbage

crystals(the club) is real tight, got a lot of big names through there, sunset station(downtown off commerce) full of clubs, rosedale park always has stuff goin on , like shows, some big names go there

at cristals, youll see more brothas, get money/gangsta music, more my type of scene. At rosedales, youll see the local mexican rap, but they do have big names show up...dont underestimate the mexicans out here, they are some crazy ass dudes

keep your eyes out on the highways, the construction in SA is the worst ive seen..the construction workers have to be drunk as shi* while working..some parts of the 410 and 281, you'll be thinking, do they seriously think this is safe? youll be literally inches from the wall..youll see what i mean

and the serial cat killer lol thats goin around, thats pretty sick

other than horrible traffic/highway construction, pretty tight city, i knew no one when i moved here, now i got a connect on every side of town

the dude question dude above me mentioned, he from here just got signed

Famous( you might now him as lil ken, hes from northwest SA) just got signed to chamillionaires label..

Austin really is the place to be for music...the city is too much damn fun, every night, i repeat every night, will be a tight show, and no not the radio garbage, real names.. last time i went to a show in ATX was boot kamp klick..used to stay off E riverside, dont go, worst part of town..check into Emos in austin

there are a lot of starving artists in SA, i meet new artists every week(myspace)..and if their good(listen to the songs on their page) do business, if their not, dont worry bout them..i have ran into one cat that was cool for a couple weeks, but never had the cash, and ended up bein a lame

DON'T SLEEP ON SXSW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! south by southwest festivals + conferences it's in Austin. We got a Xbox Video Game plug, Shows, what I do on MTV now, all from going down there every year.

Sign ups are gonna end soon I think. At least send your 20 or 30 bucks and enter in and if they don't pick you, you can go up there and get a wrist band and get into all of the shows for a reduced price. We performed at Emo Jrs with Atmosphere a few years ago.

Main thing is that there are a lot of people that work at labels to connect with. I made connections there that I'm still talking to 7 years later.

Tee Double used to be a figure up there, don't know now. There's cats around!

I'm from Ohio and one thing I hated was the Texas summer, I'm use to 80 degree weather in the summer, it was 90 to 100 degrees everday..

Imagine being outside 12 hours a day, with BDU's (military uniform they use in war), I almost dehydrated, my urine was brown and ****, cause I didn't drink enough water

I submitted as a group, I knew they wouldn't pick me, but at least I got a discount on the badge and/or wrist band. Don't know if that's still in effect.

My dude that's called a kidney infection in most states. A little anti biotics woulda helped!

You out at camp bullis? My pops was out there trying to be a cop with snakes and mess.

Speaking of SA, anyone remember PKO? I used to work for them back in 91-93.
