The Legendary KO“48 Seasons Sampler”
from 48 Seasons

Also: C.I.G.A.C Mixtape (featuring “George Bush Doesn't Care About Black People,” “Gasoline Huh,” and “Closet Racist”)

In 2005, KO (K-Otix) took on the President, the oil companies, and racist Republicans. It's not a coincidence that their promotional material has a presidential look to it.

But in '06, the Houston-based crew hopes to known for more than just anti-Bush MP3's. In fact, they've been on the grind for over a decade, opening for such acts as Outkast, The Roots, Common, Busta Rhymes, and De La Soul. From this sampler, I'm thinking that 48 Seasons might be one of the hottest underground CD's of the year, not only because of its amazing lyricism and message, but also because their beats are on point as well.

In '06, KO can show America that there is more coming out of Houston than the Paul Wall and Mike Jones.

    why the number one rap song sucks!
    Hip hop, rap has lost it's luster. It comes off as so very uneducated and ignorant, I have no desire to listen to hip hop music anymore. I will listen to reggaeton anyday before I will play any rap. In fact I do not even listen to hip hop or rap anymore, it has been so destroyed and exploited!

    I will tell the world why this song called GRILLS by Nelly and Paul Walls is the worst rap song in history and absolutely sucks! This is such disrespect to the jewelry business, the real jewelers who work in this business and to the entire gold teeth business. It is a total and complete disrespect and I do take it personally!

    I am GangstaGold, the owner founder and brainchild of GangstaGold.com online. I am not impressed about rappers who want to be jewelers overnight without any skills, education or experience in the jewelry industry and who rap about robbing the jewelry store to get their mouth bling on.

    Rappers need to concentrate on growing up and doing and rapping about the right things! They are role models to young children, teenagers and adults.

    I guess we need to build more prisons, cemetaries and drug treatment centers because if people idolize and follow this crap, that is right where they are going to end up!

    I suppose money and greed can not buy you everything! TV johhny, watch your back!

    I did not become GangstaGold by flashing my grill in anyones face or robbing the jeweler store. I work like a dog literally every day with one intention of making everyones fine jewelry dreams come true.

    Yes I sell custom removable gold teeth but I do not and will never exploit my gold teeth business. It is not a game or a rap song to me, It is my livelihood day in and day out. These rappers are the biggest bunch of hypocrites ever!

    This has to be the most ignorant, disrepectful rap song ever in history. Why would you disprespect the jeweler who makes these beautiful gold teeth?

    It is shame but the only good hip hop is on COLLEGE RADIO, hip hop that makes sense and has real meaning!

    These number one songs about grills and gold teeth are the worst representation of hip hop and rap music ever and extremely disrespectful to those of us who make out our living entirely on selling custom removable teeth bling and hip hop jewelery.

    Besides, anyone can own a gold teeth shop as he does in Texas. All you have to do is get a business license and a storefront, it is not that difficult. This does not make you an experienced or established jeweler. Maybe someone will rob or jack his jewelry store for mouthing off so much! He deserves it big time.

    As far as I am concerned, I am the real peoples champ and I don't need the fame or fortune. I service the publics jewelry needs straight from my heart, not from my pocketbook or ego!

    Absolutely disgusting, offensive and sounds like a 2 year old wrote it!-
