Welcome to DTXSelects Episode 204!
On this month’s episode, gangnem return to Central Track studios with a full plate of news — and another healthy helping of the latest in Dallas area hip-hop and rap-adjacent jams.
Listen in as my co-hosts Bry Chanel, Narco and I break down Uber Technology’s impending touchdown in Dallas and what that brings to the city’s ever-evolving cultural landscape. We also unpack what’s in store for the city as the Amber Guyger takes place, as well as its potential impact on the already strained relationship between the locals and police. I also take a deep dive into Opportunity Zones, which are the latest scheme in land-grabbing and development that’s directly affecting Dallas’ most vulnerable communities.
Bry Chanel also announces the return of her live show Aura’s Potluck on October 19, and gives us a review of her Afropunk Brooklyn and Ras Day Fest In Austin experiences. She also recommends rapper-turned-curator Raw Elementz’s Hi-End Fashion Experience (October 11) and San Antonio’s Mala Luna Festival (October 26 & 27). Narco, meanwhile, brings things home by showing love to fellow radio host slash independent music supporter Drippy Denton and multi-talented artist Hevy Ben$.
