SORT BY Relevancy
Wreckshop has been on hiatus since 2008, but D-Reck, sitting down with me on a recent visit to New York City, said he is ready to resurrect it. In our long talk, we discussed the implosion of Southwest Wholesale, a huge manufacturer and distributor for the Houston rap community through the ’90s, and the shockwave it sent through the business end of the Houston rap world when it shuttered in 2003. With the production and distribution arrangement Southwest had with many Houston labels gone, artists and labels were left scrambling. Some signed, some stayed independent, and others faded away. It was only a couple of years later that the mainstream began to notice what was building in the Bayou City, and artists like Mike Jones, Paul Wall, Slim Thug, and Chamillionaire broke into the mainstream, bringing Houston with them into the spotlight.
DJ DMD, the creator of such southern secular rap classics like So Real (which featured the late DJ Screw & the S.U.C.) and 25 Lighters, re-emerges after a self-imposed hiatus from the music industry. After releasing 4 critically-acclaimed independent albums through his old indie label, DMD decided to make a change in his life's direction...and with his music. His new company, e5 entertainment, is the vehicle he intends to use to release music that's "good for the soul and bumps in the trunk." On the heels of the remake of his classic 25 Lighters by Rock-n-Roll Hall of Famers ZZ Top, DJ DMD re-enters the music business with his own remake of the same classic...the testimonial #25BiblesOnMyDresser (featuring Bizzle & Jarrod Phillips). Reinvigorated by a new mission - which is to inspire a generation to consider using their hiphop talent to positively affect the world - DJ DMD will bring his experience in quality production and song construction to a genre geared at offering the world hope through hiphop.
Mike D is a rapper based out of Houston, Texas, who along with Clay Doe, Fat Pat and Mr. 3-2, formed the rap group Southside Playaz. Mike D was able to create a lot of tracks with Fat Pat before his death, which are still included on new Southside Playaz CDs to this day. He is also known as Bosshog Corleone,
A culture and form of ground breaking music and self expression with elements that consisted of the elements of graffiti art, DJing, MCing, and breaking. Today Hip-Hop is considered to be dead in the mainstream because so-called mainstream Hip-Hop doesn't have the elements of hip-hop and have no meaning.
The stuff on MTV and the radio can't be called Hip-Hop because the lyrics don't have any meaning or self expression. Wack artists today just rap about their shopping lists and other bullshit. There are no more DJs making a prescence since artists today think they can manage without them. Without a DJ there are no scratches and cuts. No much graffiti art is being shown in videos.

(November 15, 1969 – May 1, 2006), better known as Big Hawk or H.A.W.K was a rapper from Houston, Texas and a founding member of the late DJ Screw's rap group the Screwed Up Click. He was also the older brother of Fat Pat, who was killed in 1998. Hawk, 36, was married and had two sons before he was shot  to death. In 1994 Hawk, Fat Pat, DJ Screw and some of their friends, KK and Koldjack, collaborated to form the group D.E.A. and Dead End Records (named for the dead end block of Martin Luther King Blvd where Hawk grew up in Houston). In late 1995 D.E.A. released an original independent album entitled, “Screwed For Life” featuring Lil' Keke, Big Pokey and the rest of the S.U.C. After the deaths of Hawk’s brother (Fat Pat) and DJ Screw and the incarceration of many others SUC members, Hawk’s ultimate mission and goal became keeping the “Ghetto Dream” alive. In 1999 Hawk participated in a Southside Playaz compilation
