“I am Houston, Rep it hard.”
Good Friday got even better when Bun B debuted the H-Town All Star remix of Beyonce’s “I Been On” on Houston radio today. The new version features a who’s who of Houston Hip-Hop, including Bun B, Scarface, Willie D, Slim Thug, and…wait. She put Ro and Keke on this joint??? Let me get this straight, Z-Ro and Lil Keke the Don are rapping alongside Beyonce’s screwed up vocals? Wow.
Bun was expected, given his position as carrier of the UGK torch and hip-hop ambassador. Scarface and Willie D were givens, as one is Houston personified, and the other was name checked in the original snippet. She’s also worked with Slim Thug before, as he quickly mentions in his verse.
Keke and Ro though…I’m legitimately surprised. Nobody holds back either. There’s talk of drugs, a sprinkle of homophobia, and all sorts of real H-Tine street shit going on. Will the Beyhive buzz around this remix, or will there be even more controversy to follow? Stay tuned.
