Devin the Dude - The Dude
Speaking with the wisdom of an elder, Devin the Dude, another Houston rapper, established himself as a master storyteller with his debut. Very much a regional superstar, it wasn’t until Dr. Dre and others cosigned his singing ability on hooks that his demand was raised. Far from the average rapper obsessed with shallow material items, Devin’s appeal was being a regular guy from around the way. On The Dude, everyday listeners related to the day job frustrations of “I Can’t Quit” and numerous songs about enjoying the single life.
