Rapid Ric has pushed more product than Stringer Bell. After a prolific run of underground releases, the Mixtape Mechanic finally dropped his proper debut this year, Whut It Dew: The Album, a cameo-studded effort that's a literal highlight reel for Texas hip-hop. Rapic Ric also produced the video for “PLP,” featuring Lil' Boosie and Gerald G.

The Wooden Birds' Tour Diary
Over the Fourth of July weekend, Andrew Kenny's hosting a backyard BBQ that will serve as the backdrop to Wooden Birds' "Criminals Win," the second video for the new album, Two Matchsticks. Until then, here's his NPR-friendly recent tour diary, documenting a trip to New York, and a free EP, which boasts exclusive covers of Hall & Oates' "Maneater" and Kenny Rogers' "Ruby, Don't Take Your Love to Town." Wooden Birds grace Mohawk on July 20.
