Southside Sunday - Antone's - September 17, 2006

Update: It's not James Dean that throwing the shows... but in fact, Dat Boy Mikee.

Now this is interesting... checked out our venerable Antone's today and guess what I saw? Two shows called Southside Sunday on consecutive Sundays... Sept 17th and Sept 24th. I can only guess who might be behind this... let's put the clues together... Hip Hop Sunday (clue 1) and Houston rappers (clue 2)... all in conjunction with the closing of The Back Room. Could this be the triumphant comeback of James Dean?!? Inquiring minds want to know... so Dean hit us up!




More info:

E.S.G. (born Cedric Hill) is a rapper from Houston, Texas (though he was born in Louisiana and moved to Houston later in life) who trailblazed through the late-'90s movement and helped popularize the "Screwed and Chopped" which was created by DJ Screw and a style associated with his onetime home, Wreckshop Records. The "Everyday Street Gangsta" made his first major move in 1995 when Perrion Entertainment released "Ocean of Funk", which featured his breakthrough single, "Swangin' and Bangin'" and its accompanying "Chopped and Screwed" mix. The mix became just as popular as the song itself, if not more so.
