"#11 Austin Rap Song of All-Time: "What You Know About That Wood?""

#11 Austin Rap Song of All-Time: "What You Know About That Wood?" by Flo Mob (1999)
Sadly for as much rap activity that was brewing in Austin during the 90's, there weren't many songs being made that either caught on really big nor since then have really stood the test of time, at least not to my standard. 90's songs by artists including Short Fuze, Lil Black & CKC, Funk Dynasty, and 2.5 Mafia came up just short of making my top25, leaving "What You Know About That Wood?" as a lonely representative of an entire era of Austin rap. I remember seeing Flo Mob perform at Flamingo Cantina as far back as '94. I was living in California when I was sent the "What You Know About That Wood?' album in '99 and I have to say just how much it made me glad that something that I could bump on par with say a 2Pac cd finally emerged from Austin. "What You Know About That Wood?" should probably rate higher on my list, but that just tells you how much things got even better as we entered the 2000's. - Texas Rapps Blog


"a history of Texas Rap"

Many of these "local" artists would sell more CDs independently in Texas alone than many major-label artists would nationwide. Dallas artists like Kottonmouth,Rally Boys, Bo Leg, DSR andPimpsta would follow and build up dedicated fan bases in cities such as Tyler, Longview and Killeen. The mid-'90s even saw artists like Waco's Hustler E and Austin's Flo Mob getting love in different corners of the state. - rhapsody - Matt Sonzala


"FloMob at SXSW"

"Flo Mob was one of the few hip hop acts to grace the stage at SXSW, Austin's huge gathering for the (mostly rock) music industry. And of the few there were, Flo Mob was the only good one. In fact, their infectious energy and rump-shakin' beats just about made up for the pitiful absence of hip hop from this enormous, supposedly cutting-edge, industry event" - SonicPress
