DAILY Music  February 27, 2015, by Kevin Curtin
"...Today’s list of showcasing artists includes late blooming soul vocalist Charles Bradley, TV on the Radio frontman Tunde Adebimpe, homegrown heroes Spoon, and Texas troubadours Steve Earle, and Robert Earl Keen – at least one of whom was vetted by the SXSW grid in this week’s Chronicle. It also draws heavily from hip-hop circles, tapping Minnesota MC Atmosphere, Wu-Tang chef Raekwon, H-town king of the ghetto Z-Ro, Maybach Music all-star Wale, Nineties rappers Kurupt and Mannie Fresh, Odd Future-ist Earl Sweatshirt, Chicago spitter Vic Mensa, Midwest gangsta Freddie Gibbs, and neon icon Riff Raff...."

"...In the days that followed, upcoming Infest bookings were canceled or relocated, including D.O.A.'s farewell tour, which deferred to Red 7 last Saturday, and tonight's performance by Houston rap hero Z-Ro, now at Republic Live. While Waka promoter Trainwreq suggested Infest "got ousted by the old guard, which wants their building back to call it Antone's again," one of Antone's new owners, Tayloe Emery, told "Playback" he categorically denies having anything to do with Infest being locked out...."

Bun BDJ / Rapid Ric
Record review
Music Review  November 4, 2005, by Robert Gabriel
"...Riding blurred waves of ho's and hurt like an escapist champ, Bun B designates himself as just the driver to steer the course and ensure that "what happened in New Orleans should never happen again." Evacuating his block from the death-grip of DJ Screw mind mazes, Bun enlists national figureheads including Jay-Z, Lil Jon, and Ludacris to infuse his solo debut, Trill, with wavering vigor. As Z-Ro and Young Jeezy gargle a chorus too potent to swallow on "Get Throwed," Lil' Keke glides through Salih's carnival of mirrors "draped up and dripped up, know what I'm talking 'bout." Waxing and waning through mothership UGK's trying history as a group, Bun's never-ending verse paints "The Story" with grueling tones of paranoia and misfortune..."

Whut It Dew
They don't call DJ Rapid Ric the Mixtape Mechanic for nuthin'
Music Story  May 20, 2005, by Robert Gabriel
"...His latest effort, Whut It Dew 2, is hosted by Texas hip-hop legend Bun B of UGK and features a litany of exclusives from a Texas rap scene so absolutely scorching that reporters from MTV and The New York Times have been leaning far, far back in a southwestern direction to absorb the heat. Drawing from a pool of artists that includes Slim Thug, Paul Wall, Mike Jones, Chamillionaire, Z-Ro, and Austin favorite Bavu Blakes, Ric's forte is mixing seemingly divergent individuals into a cohesive team working toward a common goal..."

Hip-hop mogul sets the record straight?
DAILY Music  February 9, 2016, by Kahron Spearman
"...Begun as a grassroots way to keep young black men, like his younger brother, off H-Town’s rougher thoroughfares, Prince grew the label into an empire. Initially making waves with flagship act Geto Boys, featuring Scarface and Bushwick Bill, Rap-A-Lot went on to house needle-moving acts such as Devin the Dude, Z-Ro, Chicago’s Do or Die, Trae, and the late, great Pimp C..."
