HISD (Hueston Independent Spit District)
The District

This debut album by the crew of 8 local emcees and producers is a diamond in the rough that effectively dodges H-Town hip-hop clichés while maintaining a solid southern flair. This 19-track project is a versatile blend of clever lyricism and soulful production rife with strong word play, local references, and reverb drenched beats. HISD is comprised of a veritable who’s who list of greats including Soul One, Flash, Scottie Spitten, King Midas, E Classic, Savvi, and my favorite- Equality. Equality has been performing his spoken word/emcee hybrid the H-Town circuit for years at festivals, protests, and concerts alike. Subject matter deftly jumps between issues like ingrained local racism to staking girls at the Galleria. Bright spots: Paper Bag Rap, 3 Story House, and The City.
