Bun B, Slim Thug, More Celebrate Rapid Ric's Retail Release

Last month, Rapid Ric released his new album, Whut It Dew, and in true celebratory fashion, the respected DJ (for Chamillionaire), producer, and proud studio owner took to Candy Lounge in Houston, Texas to enjoy the fruits of his labor. The album features a who's-who of Texas hip-hop royalty – names including Killa Kyleon, Slim Thug, Chamillionaire, Z-Ro, Bushwick Bill, Devin The Dude, and more – and so it was no surprise to see the party was a star-studded affair, with rappers including Slim Thug, Bun B, Dew Music Group signee Gerald G., and more coming through to support Ric's latest effort.

Rapid Ric's Whut It Dew, featuring the likes of Chamillionaire, Z-Ro, Slim Thug, Trae Tha Truth, Kila Kyleon, Lil' Keke, Bushwick Bill, and more is out now and available for free download: http://www.whutitdew.com/ .

What up yall..

winding down this UK trip and it's been an absolute BLAST. I only get to check email and Twitter like once a day, and when I do, it's usually BLOWING UP with people asking about the decision I made at the end of Life After Lesson Plans, Ep 13.

Did i take the teaching job or choose to take the tour? 

Well, by the subject line, you don't have to guess which one. It's OFFICIAL!

I'll be touring the US for 2 months this fall with mc chris, MC Lars, and Adam Warrock.

Should be AMAZING! 

BUT... we need your help!.

That's a lot of gas, snacks, and lodging costs...not to mention i still have to pay rent at a place that I won't be at for 2 months... ha.

Every little bit helps. We want to be able to concentrate on giving you guys the best show possible, not where our next meal is coming from! I'll be backed by my partner in crime, K-Murdock, and we have plenty of surprises in store.
