    Jesus Christ GS Boyz are so fuckin unorignal and make me ashamed to b from Texas. I mean I tip my fitted to them cuz they out here gettin money, and ther like the only ack from Arlington gettin any major label attention. But still they further prove why it’s hard for down south mc’s to be taking seriously under the age of 25.

      @14snipes

      Let me explain something to you. I’m from Dallas. NIGGAS LIKE “GS BOYZ” ARE NOT THE PROBLEM, BECAUSE IT’S A TIME AND A PLACE FOR THAT TYPE OF MUSIC.

      THE PROBLE IS THAT THE “MAJOR LABELS” DON’T GIVE US A BALANCE. THE “MAJOR LABELS” AREN’T SIGNING THE “LYRICAL RAPPERS” FROM THE SOUTH.

      YOU AND I KNOW SINCE WE DOWN HERE IN TEXAS THAT IT’S A WHOLE LOT OF “LYRICAL RAPPERS” NOT GETTING THE SPOTLIGHT BECAUSE OF THE “MAJOR LABELS”
