Always got love for the hometown folks. Houston’s D. Rose been putting it down for a minute. I really started to check for this dude’s music when I heard “Move Slow” back in, I think, 2004. Love that tune.

Last year, D. Rose linked up with legendary Houston producer/DJ/barber DJ Cozmos to put out a really dope album called Taster’s Choice, a remastered version of which will be released soon on iTunes.

They just put out a new video from the album. “Play It Cool” features Damien of The Legendary K.O. (aka K-Otix), who directed the video and leads off the track. Also check the cameos from fellow Houston talents: H.I.S.D‘s Savvi and Scottie Spitten, Kay (of Example and Nicolay and Kay fame), and the other half of The Legendary K.O., Big Mon:
