The Video:

What better way to cool down in the Texas heat than popping the top on a Lone Star beer? Dallas’ waviest rapper/producer trio The Outfit, TX invited the city to their front yard to celebrate the relief and stress-free feeling of having all “All Bills Paid.” Mel’s drawling vocals are the linchpin of TOTX’s woozy sound, and on “All Bills Paid” they’re complemented by an edgy verse from JayHawk that preaches action over words, as well as spirited rhymes from fellow Dallas rapper Devy $tonez. Just a few weeks ago, debuted TOTX’s Deep Ellum EP, a compilation produced entirely by TOTX’s Mel and Dorian that features a slew of undiscovered talent from their hometown scene. With the Deep Ellum EP serving as a statement for the camaraderie that exists within the Dallas scene, TOTX are preparing for the release of their anticipated follow-up album to 2013’s Cognac/Four Corner Room for later this year.

If it’s not already, a spotlight should be signed on the Dallas hip-hop community after local rapper Justus appeared as one of the break-out artists on Dr. Dre’s Compton album. While Justus and Post Malone, who resides on the outskirts of the city, have gotten the industry co-signs that make them ones to keep an eye on, The Outfit, TX have established themselves as the torchbearers for what Passion of the Weiss called the “promethazine-spiked” Texas sound. It’s caught the attention of NPR and Complex, who ran huge interviews with TOTX last year. Awarded Best Rap Group from Dallas Observer in 2014, the trio’s critically acclaimed repertoire has distinguished them as one of Texas’ most eccentric groups. TOTX closed out 2014 by performing on the Red Bull Sound Select tour as openers for Run the Jewels. They’ve been busy in the first half of 2015, releasing several singles – an ode to their favorite bourbon with “Wild Turkey,” a collaboration with cross-state spitter Maxo Kream with “Ü,” and a strip club-ready anthem in “Big Daddy.”

The Outfit, TX Background:

Born and raised in Dallas, producers and rappers Dorian, JayHawk, and Mel make up the hip-hop band The Outfit, TX. After forming while in school at University of Houston in 2006, they returned to Dallas to continue to work on their patented brand of “Cooly Fooly Space Age Funk.” Individually, each has their own respective sound and together, they expertly blend their unabashed Southern credo of smooth synth bass, moogs, 808s and synthesizers.

TOTX has performed with the likes of J. Cole, Wiz Khalifa, The Clipse, and Kendrick Lamar. They headlined their first sold out show at Warehouse Live in Houston, TX in March 2013, then hit the road, performing at several music festivals including A3C’s “Best in Texas” Showcase, and Spune’s Index Fest in Dallas, TX. The future holds much more for the three Southern gentlemen that comprise The Outfit,TX, who recently relocated back to Dallas from Houston. They might have put it best, describing their artistry as “one small step for Texas, one giant leap for Southern kind.”
