Still tippin’, still surviving. That’s the message in part two of Slim Thug’s Hogg Life rap-umentary© series.
Last night the River Oaks Theatre played host to the Hogg Life: Still Survivng premier. A veritable who’s who from the Houston hip-hop scene were on hand to witness the screening. Everyone from Bun B, to 97.9 The Box’s JJ & J-Mac, 93.7 The Beat’s Devi Dev, Z-ro, Propain, Michael Artis & the list goes on.
Part one of the series introduced us to Slim at an early age and gave us some insight into the influences and people that molded him into such a fan favorite. Part two takes us along for the ride as his hard work and dedication pushes his “celebrity” beyond the bounds of the city and into the international spotlight. The energy builds as Slim opens Epidsode 2 of a four part series seated on a golden throne, crown casually cocked to one side with his sprawling pool and backyard framed behind him as he explains how he got his first major deal (s/o LeToya Luckett). From there its full speed ahead as we watch Slim in the studio with Pharrell, Dr. Dre, & Jazzy Pha. We’re with him as he explains the Houston movement that swept the world with Mike Jones, Paul Wall, & Chamillionaire at the forefront of the takeover. We even get to go along for the ride as accepts his MTV award with Beyonce, performs at the MTV awards show with all of Houston, chops it up on the couch with Tyra Banks & Pharrell, and cops his first Phantom fresh off the show room floor.
Great rap-umentary © , an absolute must see if you’re a fan of the Boss Hogg or the Houston sound in general!
