MP3: DJ Rapid Ric - "PLP" Feat. Lil' Boosie, Dorrough Music, Chalie Boy & Gerald G
Release Of New Street Album, Whut It Dew, Celebrated With Star-Studded New Single
If you're familiar with the Texas mixtape scene, then you're familiar with Rapid Ric. And if you're not, then you're in for a treat. The Austin, Texas DJ has traveled the world as the tour DJ for Slim Thug and Chamillionaire and DJ's regularly around the state, not to mention the mixtape series that has earned Ric his "Mixtape Mechanic" moniker. Now, with his label Dew Music Group, Rapid Ric is excited to release his debut street album, Whut It Dew, a 16-ttrack project featuring the likes of Chamillionaire, Z-Ro, Slim Thug, Trae Tha Truth, Kila Kyleon, Lil' Keke, Bushwick Bill, and more. Whut It Dew, officially released April 19, 2011 is produced entirely by Rapid Ric, in conjunction with his DMG team.
To celebrate the album's release, Ric is giving fans a brand new single, "PLP" (or "Parkin' Lot Pimpin'), a track that sports features from Lil' Boosie, Dorrough Music, Chalie Boy, and brand new DMG artist Gerald G. Built around Gerald G's infectious, chanted "I can pimp, can you pimp " chorus, the track takes on a different feel than most of Ric's production work on the album. "My music normally has a lot of live elements – guitars, bass, horns – but 'PLP' doesn't," explains the DJ/producer. "I wanted the record to sound like it came from Dallas, Louisiana, or Prairie View University; most of the new Texas independent rap club hits use classic 808 sounds, synths, and a catchy chorus. 'PLP' has all that."

A DJ at the age of 15, Rapid Ric moved to Austin Texas from a small boarder town where he soon coined "the mix tape mechanic" and has been DJing ever since. In the area he became the go-to guy if you wanted to get your stuff heard in the hood, as well as internationally. He formed partnerships with artists from across the state – most notably with Chamillionaire (Ric is his official DJ), Z-Ro, Trae tha Truth, Killa Kyleon, Bun B, Chalie Boy, Paul Wall and more – and released mixtapes with each and every one of them that not only showcased the growing berth of Texas music, but also his strong DJ skills. Rapid Ric's persistence quickly got him noticed, and then he did what many Texas acts don't, he hit the road. Rapid Ric traveled the world with Chamillionaire's tour, had a stint as Slim Thug's tour DJ, and performed on MTV's TRL. Now in 2011 Rapid Ric is taking it above ground with his official debut full-length release – Whut It Dew.
