Concealed Weapons 2

Connecting the dots from the Goodie Mob to the Geto Boys, the League of Extraordinary Gz eight local rappers from Dred Skott, Southbound, and C.O.D. – is Austin's first rap supergroup. Its latest mixtape builds off the buzz of the first Concealed Weapons assault and raises the bar for the forthcoming debut from the Wu-Tang of Texas. Take it from Esbe: "Get ready, 'cause when it comes, it's on, mufucka!" The sprawling mixtape, mixed by the dynamic duo of Wes Sanders and DJ Knowledge, is nails-hard and whip-smart with 21 tracks of reality rap twisting ATX tales from Sixth Street to the Pink Monkey. Mr. Greezo, Reggie Coby, S. Dot, Sandman, and co. spit street politics and take aim at fad-chasing, skinny-jeans-rocking rappers before closing with "Trae Day," a middle finger to commercial radio and show of support for the Box-banned Houston MC.
