HipHopDX Premieres New LOEGz Single; Debut Album #LeagueShit Available To Stream Via DJ Booth Today
Critical Praise for League Of Extraordinary Gz:
“The eight members of the group were a high-energy bunch, rapping with distinctive Texas twang and pogo dancing nonstop.” – The New York Times
“A goddamn typhoon onstage.” – Houston Press
“Eight immensely capable lyricists, all of whom bring a unique perspective, voice, and level of vigor to the stage” – Austin Chronicle cover story
“…what promises to be a defining group in Texas rap history: The League of Extraordinary G’z.”- DJ Booth
HipHopDX just premiered the latest track, “Maybe She’s Right,” from Austin, Texas, rap collective the League Of Extraordinary Gz in anticipation of the release of the group’s debut album, #LeagueShit, which is available to stream via DJ Booth today.
“This was one of the last tracks that we did for the album,” says group member Greezo, “Reggie did the beat and came up with the hook and concept for the track. He reached out to Lowkey and me to write verses for the track. Both of us had been going through relationship issues at the time so it was a pretty quick process to pen some reality bars to the track.” While certainly commenting on the tumultuous nature of relationships, the track manages to maintain the group’s signature wit and tongue-in-cheek humor, featuring snippets of angry voicemails left by a fed up girlfriend.
The new album boasts guest features by Dead Prez, Slim Gravy of A.Dd+, Grupo Fantasma and more, and drops officially on October 15th.

League Of Extraordinary Gz Background:
When Austin, Texas, reality rap collective League of Extraordinary Gz recorded “We Gone Make It” in spring 2010, Octavis “Esbe Da 6th Street Bully” Berry stepped in the recording booth and yelled two words: “League Shit!”. Three years later, it has become an emphatic anthem, brand and title. The Bully’s vision formed in 2009 when his choice of eight members and three groups with their own budding local buzz – Dred Skott, Da COD and Southbound – sat in a driveway plotting a collaborative mixtape. In 2010 they debuted locally, played the South by Southwest Music Festival and Fun Fun Fun Fest and were featured on MTV Jams’ Texas All-Star Edition. In 2011 they rocked over 60 shows, including a West Coast tour with Jackie Chain for their Concealed Weapons 3 mixtape, and a national tour with Dead Prez. Then, in October 2011, The Bully passed away suddenly due to a pulmonary embolism. As 2011 ended, the LOEGz were named one of Sonicbids’ Top 5 Hip Hop acts. They released The Plug EP in December. All of this came from a collective effort by three groups in three years via the foresight of a now-absent leader. All anticipation, questions or doubt after a few spins of The Plug EP will be quenched with their debut album #LeagueShit. Clearly rooted in traditional Hip Hop, #LeagueShit includes stout musicality and wildly free speech featuring Dead Prez, Bavu Blakes, Grupo Fantasma, and Slim Gravy of A.Dd+.
