Lyrics

On my block, it's just another day in the heart

About

The Southside (all of Houston south of I-10)is the mecca of Houston rap, where legends from Scarface to Chamillionaire to Fat Pat grew up. Houston’s signature slow-paced “chopped and screwed” hip-hop style was created here by DJ Screw in the 90s. Rappers' love of sippin' on sizzurp also started here with DJ Screw. This is like the Cooperstown of Purple Drank
