Oh Word on Devin the Dude and the "Blogger Kiss of Death"

Oh Word has an great article about Devin the Dude and the impact of bloggers and blog buzz on "creative rappers."

I am excited about Devin the Dude's new album and it should bring him a much larger audience. Of course, I thought that for his last album that was written up in the Times, etc. In support of that album, we saw him perform some afternoon show in a park here in Austin with maybe 100 people in attendance.

He was great, as was that album, but it just went nowhere for him. I hope that this one will be different for him. He's a tremendous talent and appears well-liked in Houston among all the different battling factions.
