Dizzee Rascal - Off to Work in Houston, Texas

Well it's Friday afternoon now, my cable internet has been going in and out, in and out cuz a squirrel ate thru my wires outside, and I am wrecked. The past two days have been a whirlwind, trying to get Dizzee around this massive metropolis
to meet, greet and work with some of our most um, open minded artists and shit, thangs worked out wonderfully.

Last year I introduced Dizzee to Bun B at South By Southwest in hopes of getting them into the studio together. Well one year later, almost to the day, it happened. Bun B of UGK and Dizzee Rascal have collaborated on one of the most gangsta cuts you're gonna hear this year. When they finished laying the shit I said in the studio "Yo y'all gonna let me post this on the net tonight right?" And they looked at me like I was insane. But Bun did say he'll let me play it on Damage Control in the coming weeks. So that's done, knock one more thang off the to do list.

The day before Dizzee spent most of it in the studio with the G.R.i.T. Boys laying freestyles and they did an official jam as well for the Boys album that's coming out this summer. Hopefully I'll get to play something from that last week.

Man, shit was off the hook. Dizzee has a stronger work ethic than almost anyone I have ever met. His energy and his presence are straight magical (o.k. that sounds gay, but dude I been around a lot of rappers, I don't know anyone who can keep up with his pace on the mic or off, he works quickly and efficiently). He says he does it because the only place he has to go back to is not a nice place, forward ever backwards never my dog. Anyway, I ain't gonna write a fucking book on this shit, unless you want to pay me, so here's a fucking shitload of photos for you to enjoy.

More on the concept of "You're Gonna Have to Pay Me" towards the end.


In the studio with Grit Boys


Dizzee freestyling with G.R.i.T. Boys on Damage Control

ESG and Dizzee




Meanmug opened the whole night - Engine Room, 04/14/05, Houstonsoreal, TX


G.R.i.T. Boys came up second.






Lyrics Born opened for Dizzee on this here particular night

















Somewhere around here I let my friend Aubin use my camera, and these are some of the shots she came up with. She is now my favorite photographer of all time. This is really what I wanted to see. People annoyed in a shitty bathroom.










----
Scroll down to the next post and you'll see some shots of MTV's Direct Effect crew hanging with a portion of the Screwed Up Click outside Screwed Up Records and Tapes. They were in town filming a gang of shit for some sort of Houston special they are doing. I consulted a slight bit with them, gave 'em some numbers, some information and thought maybe they could have found the time to come by Damage Control (my radio show) or maybe give me a lil interview since I been feeding people the Houston real for some years now. But no, they couldn't see fit to include your boy, which pisses me off. Really pisses me off. I ain't no egomaniac, but give your boy 30 seconds, a soundbyte, fucking 2 sentences with my name and website on the screen. I don't give a fuck. But no.

So the real deal is MTV gonna have a Houston special without your boy and without K-Rino. Isn't that nice? The Screw part better be repped fucking properly, it better not be some fucking... lemme stop. I'm just mad, but how you gonna cut out your boy? How you gonna be involved in hip hop on any level, be in town on a Wednesday and not come down to Damage Control? After you said you would. After you said at Screwed Up Records "Naw Matt it's all good, we don't need to interview you here, we're coming to Damage Control, we'll talk there." After I wore my best shirt. Then not showing up after I lied to my people and said we had a special show so you couldn't get in without a pass. Damage Control usually has about 100 people in the area, in the building and in the parking lot, hanging out, networking, bringing us music, waiting to freestyle, whatever. We had Dizzee Rascal in the house even, but man, MTV didn't want a fucking circus up there and I understood that shit. So I shut it down, held fools back from coming to the show, thinking MTV was coming, but they didn't. As you know. Told Bun when they called and even HE didn't show. So whatever, the show was hot as fuck with Dizzee and Grit freestyling and Wonder playing a gang of his jams and beats. It was hot, but could have been hotter. Bun Down Viacom.

So whatever, MTV can go choke on the Next Big Thing and keep it moving. Lemme stop...

I will say this though, any of you fucking journalists want help with your little Houston stories, I'm charging $10 per phone number. You wanna get with my peoples? Figure out who and PayPal me $10 for each of them before you even call. $50 for Bun B. $100 for Willie D. $1,000 for Scarface's manager. GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE WITH YOUR NEW YORK HOE SHIT! Pay me.

And since MTV don't want to put the mouth of the motherfuckin' south on they airwaves, I'ma be all um, what's the word for it, all um, VAIN, yeah that's it and post two pics of my damn self by Aubin Bryan. Enjoying my 15 minutes quite a lot...





See that scary mug in the booth? I'ma be in New York Monday April 25th with the one Rapid Ric for my girl Roxysoreal's Birthday Party. Shit is going down at SWAY and my man Ric is gonna set it the fuck off. First 40 people get a percoset and a Red Stripe and a smile from the happiest man in H-Town, in New York. Oh yeah, Source motherfuckers, I'm coming to holler at you too. Ring someone in Accounting, I'ma be banging on your door. Monday April 25th, Sway, New York City, HoustonsorealMattSoReal and DJ Rapid Ric, I'll post Roxy's hot ass flyer when I get the final version. We making it happen hipsters.

OK! What's your PayPal account? These Damage Control mpfrees and all these pictures and interviews are fuckin treasures! I can part with a few $$.

Also: Could you hook me up with the digits of Mike Jones?! HA!

Fuck MTV of course...

12:52 PM  
Blogger 893 said...

Ok... Well if you put a way to PayPal your site, or send me your account info, I will send you small amounts of $ on a semi-regular basis. Other people probably would be willing to do the same. Seriously?

That Mike Jones request was not for serious.
