UGK Underground Kingz (Out April 2007)

H- Town’s super duo UGK teams with Oscar winners Three 6 Mafia fusing their mighty powers together for a calling to all the true macks in their attentively titled, Playa’s Anthem. Just as the name implies, Playa’s Anthem is chuck full of verses where the featured emcees talk greasy about easy breezies as Juicy J lays down one of those show making sampled beats that we’ve come to expect from the Three 6 camp. But just as the song is on its way to becoming a classic it falls short in one major area: there’s no hook! How can you remember an anthem if there’s nothing memorable between the verses? Playa’s Anthem is still banging, but it’s definitely no Sippin’ on Some Sizzurp.
