Dirty South Legend E.S.G. to Release New Album "Everyday Street Gangsta" on E1 Music September 29th, 2009

Originator of the Chopped and Screwed Movement Mixes It up With Bun B, Slim Thug, Chamillionaire, Trae and More

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - August 13, 2009) - E1 Music is thrilled to bring you the long awaited new studio album from Texas mainstay E.S.G. "Everyday Street Gangsta" will be released on September 29th, 2009. This collection of new tracks took over a year to assemble courtesy of the man that brought us the chopped and screwed sound out of Houston. E.S.G. changed the direction of southern hip hop once. Get ready, because he is about to do it again!

You cannot mention the dirty south rap movement without paying homage to E.S.G. He is considered one of the most eminent and important rappers out of Texas. To date E.S.G. has sold over 500,000 albums and thousands upon thousands more on the mixtape circuit.

Everyone knows that E.S.G.'s 1995 "Swangin' and Bangin'" remix took on a life of its own. E.S.G. was the pioneer of the chopped and screwed sound that attracted labels such as Perrion, Priority and Wreckshop. The hits kept coming too with "Crooked Streets" and "Smoke On."

"Everyday Street Gangsta" features Slim Thug, Streets Gov, Bun B, Duane Harris, Chamillionaire, Big Moe, Young Beast, Killa B and Trae.

As E.S.G. explains it, "My new album is really geared towards anyone who's trying to pigeon hole Southern artists as all being the same, haters or critics... it's time you see every artist don't have to go the easy road to be successful and show these cats who have major deals, we do the same thing as an independent company... pretty much giving them swag class, watch how they live, then rap about it. So I took my time grinding the last year to bring some of the best to ever do it south of the Mississippi."
