Yo, it’s the Femme of the Funk here with some #Fresh
New Music out on Denton, TX. If you haven’t met Pudge
and Ritchy Flo
yet, let me tell you, you are missing out. These are definitely 2 of my favorite dudes in the DFW scene right now and 2 of my favorite MCs as well. They both are the underdog, which is my favorite type. At first look you’d never think these guys could spit, but give them a few minutes and they’ll blow your mind. Ritchy even does magic!! Who doesn’t love a magician? I could literally kick it with these guys for days on end, book them at every show I put on, and never get tired of them. Real Talk.
At the moment, Fab Deuce, Pudge Brewer, Ritchy Flo and a few other MCs out of Denton are releasing projects under the collective, Gitmo Music
, LLC which has promised to put out a new album from it’s artists every month. “Side Effects
” was the drop for November. “Side Effects” is a short and sweet album with only 6 tracks going for a reasonable rate of $3 per download full of snarky lines about partying, drugs, alcohol, sex and everything you’d expect from 20 somethings living in a college town.
“Side Effects” was produced by Ritchy Flo, Pudge and Shag who are all out of Denton, TX and the album was complete after only a few months. “We have always been the lead producers and sound engineers in our other projects so it l came together pretty easy since both of us have acquired that skill. It decreased the work load for both of us,” said Pudge. Pudge also filmed and edited both videos released on this project.
“Nobody Cares” starts off the Album with Ritchy spitting, “Flo’s no good, shockingly bad. Nah I’m full of sh*t like a colostomy bag,” in true Ritchy fashion. And it doesn’t stop. When asked what their favorite tracks are on the record, Pudge chose “Takin a Test” and “Don’t make Sense” while Ritchy Flo likes “Grocery Sax” and “Let Me Rap To You.” “‘Let Me Rap to You’ is cool cause I never rap about rapping or the fact I’m a rapper so that was my one song to get that out,” explains Ritchy. With only 6 songs on this EP its hard to choose just one and really, you don’t have to!
They released the video to “Takin a Test” that was shot on Halloween night in Denton and yours truly, Callie Dee, makes a cameo!!! Check it out. I know Pookie said Dallas was bound to rise, but I’d watch out for the Big D’s little brother, Denton. With artists coming out of the little d like Fab Deuce, Ritchy Flo, Pudge, Wild Bill and Gitmo Music, LLC, Dallas has some stiff competition.
