But one artist is determined to put Houston back in the forefront and become the new face of its music scene: Kidricc James. Kidricc James is trying to create a shift in the musical expectations of his city while staying true to his roots.
"I feel like Houston has so much talent and there's so much potential here," he said. "I want to be one of the people that helps shed light on the range of artistry that exists, because I feel like we have something special here."
Kidricc is no stranger to hard work, having already released 17 EPs and several singles independently, but he knows that there's still more work to be done in order to make Houston's music scene truly thrive. "I just want to keep pushing boundaries and doing things that haven't been done here before,"he said. "I want people to mention Houston the same way they mention New York, L.A. or Atlanta as a major hub for the industry."

He has a way of blending these genres together that is unlike any other artist out there. His voice is smooth and calming, but his lyrics are often powerful and thought-provoking. With a catalogue that includes collaborations with Bun B, Big K.R.I.T., Raheem DeVaughn, Devin the Dude and a host of other industry heavy hitters, Kidricc's music has something for everyone, and it's clear that he is here to stay.
