|Houston's own Devin The Dude is one of the few emcees who's worked with the best in the underground, mainstream, East, West, and South. After his showstealing appearances on Scarface's 1998 My Homies compilation, Devin dropped his solo debut ''The Dude'' to rave reviews including a coveted 4-mics rating in The Source, a rarity for Southern hip-hop artists at the time. With his laid-back flow and smoke-filled rhymes, Devin won the hearts of both rap fans and rappers themselves (most famously Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre, who invited Devin to appear on ''F*ck You'' from Dre's classic album Chronic 2001).|
As one of the first rappers to switch back and forth between rhyming and crooning, Devin also laid the groundwork for today's crop of hybrid urban music stars. The Dude went on to release 6 more acclaimed albums, working with everyone from Andre 3000 to Nas to Lil Wayne along the way.
Now he's back with ''Seriously Trippin','' a brand new EP full of the smoke-filled tales and head-nodding soundtrack that fans have come to expect from Devin. Now available on limited edition tripped-out colored vinyl, featuring the vinyl-only bonus track ''Stop Waiting.''
