Dante Higgins Shares “Twoston” [@dantehiggins #twoston]

Dante Higgins brand new album Right On is set to be released later this month. On what is the H-Town rapper’s 30th birthday, he looks back at the Houston Rockets two championships and injects more one liners for “Twoston”. Laid over a sample of Shai’s “If I Ever Fall In Love,” from Charity EVaughn & Randy Ransom, the sports fanatic bounces between topics. He furrows his brow about dating a woman with butt injections (“I pay for her ass shots, please give me my ass back”) and more. Jeff Bagwell gets a metaphor, the Phoenix Suns get a jab. Higgins uses “Twoston” to reminisce on growing up when the city produced champions and competitive teams. Stream the Houston remembrance piece from Dante Higgins below. Right On is coming soon.

The King PEN Strikes Again: Dante Higgins Drops ‘ThreeIVThree’ EP [@DanteHiggins]

Dante Higgins is just getting started. The Houston emcee and Breadwinner Music Group artist’s focus has been razor-sharp in 2016 and the work speaks for itself. Over the summer, Higgins unveiled his King PEN EP, his first project since his Good Forever album last November. King PEN packed potent messages and searing honesty in its seven tracks, and it could’ve held its own as Higgins’ only release of the year, especially given that the EP stand out cut “Black Lives Matter” was re-released as a single.But the self-anointed Snotty Nose Bastard wasn’t done blessing his “HigHeadz” just yet.

On Friday, Higgins released yet another EP entitled threeIVthree, on the heels of releasing the titular freestyle at the start of the week. threeIVthree bears only one feature, with M.A.C. of Undergravity joining Dante on “Netflix & Chill”; on the production front, Jett I. Masstyr, Killa Tex, and Higgins’ producer partner in crime Charity E. Vaughn are on the boards for the three-track effort.

On threeIVthree’s opening freestyle, Higgins flexes his lyrical muscle, weaving in and out of Jett I.’s beat with the footwork of a pugilist. On “Netflix & Chill,” Higgins reinvents the concept, warily assessing how he’s seen the famous and the infamous come and go in the blink of an eye and why he’s more focused on self-improvement than spotlight. And outro track “F*k ‘Em” is one radio edit away from being Higgins’ first radio single, a blues-sampling groove on which Dante channels Kobe Bryant and dedicates two small words to his critics and detractors.
