Outside the Lines With Rap Genius

"New Podcast: Michael “5000” Watts of Swishahouse (#62)"

Beginning with a hometown crew and a particular style of chopped and screwed remixes, Michael Watts successfully turned regional mix tape distribution into a record label empire - turning the national hip hop scene onto the Houston rap community. As we heard from our talk with Houston Rap author Lance Scott Walker, the Houston rap landscape is an incredibly rich one - widely defined by the rappers, producers, and DJs who have never and will never truly leave the city. No one knows that better than Watts

We talked to the legendary DJ, founder and CEO of Swishahouse Records about the origins of chopped and screwed music, his f*ck Action mixtapes, the hype behind Mike Jones, the beginnings of Swishahouse, and much more
