There’s a pretty good chance that you don’t know Orlando native turned Houstonian BILLYRACXX. However, if you took the time to check out last year’s Billy Ocean Two, you might wonder why you missed such a prolific performer. Known for an intense live show, the rapper is on the cusp of the new Houston rap world, where fans mosh at shows and get crazy like they’re at a hardcore show. Keeping things on the next level, today BILLYRACXX released a 20 minute film entitled Flamingos and Finches, and it’s pretty epic.
The film, featuring new tracks, concert footage, and intimate behind the scenes footage showcases how intense the rapper’s shows are and how next level he’s doing things. The Houston rapper plans on releasing the soundtrack to the film immediately following this weekend’s Super Bowl LI. The album will feature guest spots from OG Maco and Greg Money, and if it’s as insane as the film, it should be a welcome follow up to his album last year.
While there are no shows planned around the soundtrack release, you’d be doing yourself not to keep an eye out for BILLYRACXX, as he’s definitely at the forefront of the next wave in Houston hip hop.
