About Scarface

Scarface is a rapper, singer and record producer from the South Acres neighborhood of Houston, Texas. He is also an early member of Southern rap group the Geto Boys, alongside Willie D and Bushwick Bill. Throughout his career, Scarface has worked with many other renowned hip-hop artists such as Tupac, Jay-Z, Master P, and Nas.

His influence in the rap game has been unmatched since he entered the hip-hop scene in the late 1980s. He is known for his gritty lyrics about street life and his ability to tell vivid stories through his music. Scarface’s career has spanned several decades, producing classic tracks and unforgettable albums with his unique storytelling and booming voice.

In addition to his career as a rapper, Jordan was the coordinator and president of Def Jam South from 2000 to 2005, where he fostered the career of Ludacris, whom he originally signed to the label.

About Paul Wall

Paul Wall is an American rapper and DJ hailing from Houston, Texas. He gained prominence in the mid-2000s as a part of the Houston rap scene and became known for his unique blend of Southern hip-hop and his signature grillz, which played a significant role in shaping his image.

He began his career as a member of the Swishahouse label, and released his debut album, The Peoples Champ, in 2005. He has since released several other albums, including Get Money, Stay True, and Fast Life. He has also released several mixtapes, including The Po Up Poet, The Po Up Poet 2, and No Sleep Til Houston.

About Mike Jones

Who is Mike Jones? Prior to gaining mainstream exposure during late 2004 and early 2005 with his single “Still Tippin’,” Houston-based MC and self-promoter extraordinaire Mike Jones had long been a stalwart of the Swishahouse label, with a handful of releases under his belt.

His breakout album, Who Is Mike Jones?, was released in April of 2005, distributed via Warner Brothers. It topped out at number three on the Billboard 200 chart. His second effort on a major label, the EP/DVD set The American Dream, followed in July 2007, but not before another series of mixtape releases. Two years later he returned with the single “Cuddy Buddy” along with the album The Voice. He found his niche with songs that repeated his name and cell phone number until neither could be forgotten.

About Slim Thug

Slim Thug is a rapper and record executive from the Northside of Houston, Texas. He rose to fame in 2003 with his debut album Already Platinum. Since then he has been nominated for a Grammy Award, released numerous albums, and is a respected figure in the hip hop industry.

At the age of 17, Slim began to perform at local high school parties, catching the attention of legendary DJ Michael “5000” Watts and landing him a spot as a featured artist on the Swisha House 98 mixtape. With the mentoring from Watts and his own will to be self-made, Slim recognized the importance of becoming an independent artist. After amicably parting ways with Swisha House, Slim Thug started his own record label, Boss Hogg Outlawz (BHO).

In addition to being a successful entertainer and businessman, Slim has also managed to add author and philanthropist to his resume. As recognition for his many efforts to give back to his community, February 25, 2014 was officially named “Slim Thug Day” by the Mayor Annise Parker and the City of Houston.

About Z-Ro

Prolific Houston rapper Z-Ro is a local legend in the Texas scene, appearing on countless tracks with peers like Scarface, Gucci Mane, Bun B, and Pimp C. Born Joseph Wayne McVey, Z-Ro (aka the Mo City Don) grew up with equal parts inspiration from hardcore rappers like 2Pac and the Geto Boys and soulful crooners like Babyface and Sam Cooke. His style merged the two genres, bringing a hard edge to explicitly honest songs about love, relationships, and street life.

Z-Ro got his start with the Screwed Up Click, a crew of Houston rappers led by the late DJ Screw. He made his solo debut in 1998 with Look What You Did to Me, following it with an album release each year (except 1999 and 2013) for nearly two decades. After signing with Rap-a-Lot Records in 2004, he released his eighth overall LP, The Life of Joseph W. McVey. His “drug series” – Crack, Cocaine, Heroin, Meth, and Angel Dust – spanned the 2008 to 2012 period. Crack was his highest-charting album to date (number 48) and featured Slim Thug, Mike D, Paul Wall, Pimp C, and Mya. Released in 2016, “Drankin’ & Drivin’” peaked in the Top Ten of the R&B chart.

About Lil Flip

Wesley Eric Weston, Jr., better known by his stage name Lil Flip, is a multi-Platinum American rapper celebrated for his legendary freestyle ability.  He received national industry attention and acclaim upon releasing his debut Platinum Record album, The Leprechaun. His third album, U Gotta Feel Me, went double Platinum and made him a household name. The singles “Game Over” and “The Way We Ball” were both certified Gold.

Through the course of his career, Lil Flip has collaborated with many artists including T.I., Ludacris, Scarface, and Clover G’s. He has also been featured on songs by other artists including Chamillionaire, Paul Wall, and Mike Jones. In 2004, he won the Hip Hop Single of the Year Award at the Ozone Awards for the song “Game Over”. He also won the Best New Artist Award from the same organization in 2003.
