PREMIERE: T2 Ghetto Hippie “IDGAF”

Double Cups & Taco Trucks is a project that represents more than food preference and drug use,” explains T2 Ghetto Hippie, the  Houston rapper responsible for the bugged-out music video of the same name. “It’s a phrase that reminds me of home… and the contrasting reality that is everyday life in southwest Houston. It represents everybody who is still able to find happiness regardless of the struggles and harsh living conditions of low income neighborhoods. Even if it derives from a double cup, some tacos, or anything as simple as that…it’s finding peace in the little things. Finding good vibes in bad situations. Smiling through the darkness.” Word.

Today MASS APPEAL premieres “IDGAF” a new track from the artist’s debut DC&TT.  T2 has previously collabed with local hero Z-Ro on “Hustletown,” and worked Chris Rockaway and Trakksounds to create his new project, with the stated goal of “redefininig Houston rap.”

“This project isn’t about celebrating cough syrup,” he explains, “but more emphasizing what it’s like in my neighborhood, and portraying how it feels to play the game of life with the hand we were dealt. With what I believe is my most wholesome sounding body of work andtwo of my favorite songs I have ever made with other artists (Maxo Kream & Dizzy Wright). I feel like ‘Double Cups’ is really going to help bring some eyes to what we got going on down in Houston.”
