Black Gold is a Houston Album thru and thru.The REAL Houston. Its Slab dreams and working class nightmares. Its the Nigerians working at whataburger taking night classes at U of H, its the Mexican day
laborers on Westpark, the Desi stores on Harwin making Hillcroft
fitteds, its Frenchys, its fresh fades, its the West U kids rolling
blunts with the kids from the Wards, Pick Up trucks and trailer hitches, Bubble Tea and Bun mi, the smell of Pasadena, Olajuwon in 95, McGrady in 09, the texture of the Humidity, Big Red and Robitussin, GCHC, Enron, Spice Lane, good Beef Brisket, the southern fried styles of the black and white Baptist pastors, the Astrodome and funnel cakes at Astroworld, the Bloods in Denver Harbor, the Crips in South Park and of course the first time you see 84s. Welcome to Houston: home of the most restaurants and strip clubs per capita.

A high octane, highly intellectual Hip Hop duo from Houston, Texas comprised of Dirty Dog D (D3) & OG Nasty Nique (The Texas
Chainsaw). These SXSW Converse Rubber Tracks Alumni have ripped the stage from FPSF to the streets of Atlanta during A3C. A laid back style mixed with the coolness of raw power. Sounds like Public Enemy & Run the Jewels meets EPMD on holiday in Rap's New World....more
