Devin The Dude/Potluck/Woulf/Acemial

When: Mon., Nov. 9, 9 p.m. 2015

Houston, Texas rapper Devin the Dude has been in the business for over twenty years delivering his own brand of hip-hop. Devin cut his teeth (or planted his seeds, if you will) with Rap-A-Lot Records in the mid-90s as the breakout member of Odd Squad. He soon became RAL's go-to man, delivering memorable hooks on songs like "Hand of the Dead Body" from Scarface's seminal classic album, "The Diary." Other standouts include 5th Ward Boyz' "P.W.A.," Facemob's "The Other Side" and Scarface's "F**k Faces." The Dude released his debut album 'The Dude' in 1998 and received his first widespread recognition with his guest slot on Dr. Dre's "F**k You" from "Chronic 2001." The Dude has several hits of his own including "Doobie Ashtray," "Anything," "Do What You Want," "Can't Make It Home," "Lacville '79" and others. Over the course of his career, The Dude has released eight albums along with two EPs. His last album was 2013's 'One For The Road'. It's Devin's charismatic but ordinary everyman approach to most life situations in general that allows him to be as crass as he wants to be without necessarily coming off as threatening and has enabled him to have a cult following among both weed-smokers and nonsmokers alike. With marijuana legalization on the ballot and possibly becoming law, who better to celebrate with than the Dude himself. (Emanuel Wallace)
