Scat Talk – [NeedNoName]

I would be lying if I said that I hadn’t at least been a little bored with the Texas rap scene over the past few years as many cartoonish artists with a propensity for Instagram drama have been leading the state for the past few years until being uprooted this year by several Houston newcomers, most notably Guapo whose track “Mr. Put It On” has officially achieved viral status, or the slightly more established Lil Jairmy who looks poised to take the city’s reigns fully in the ’20’s. However, my favorite new Texas artist is still yet to even hit our pages here and I have to give props to my friend TanaFullyLoaded for putting me on here, as the Nashville-born, Detroit-paid producer has been spreading this newly iconic Detroit sound all over the south. NeedNoName’s recent project All Off Backendz where he unloads his diverse bag of flows and unique perspective and sense of humor across thirty tracks that paint a very clear picture of the Houston force. He collaborates with many of Texas’s biggest new names, as well as Detroit’s as well. I look forward to hearing NeedNoName and his “Yehhhh” ad-lib a lot more soon.
