Lil T, Killa Cal Wayne & Gutta - Show Y'all video

As I remember it, J. Prince of the Rap-A-Lot Records empire was the very one to coin the phrase "reality rap". On one hand, the term is a cop-out designed to excuse the promotion of rampant drug dealing, imprisonment, and death. On another hand, and this was Lil J's exact point, these are the things that are actually at work in the hood. So why blame anyone for merely wanting to document "reality"?

At any rate in 2011, Killa Cal Wayne has forcibly snatched the baton previously carried by the likes of Scarface and Z-Ro and continues to run cutthroat circles around the track of reality rap. From his base of 3rd Ward Houston, where few apologies exist, Killa Cal Wayne reminds us that yes, we still have a problem and no, the art of expressing the ground-level carnage has yet to run its course...
