From an interview with K-Rino by Lance Scott Walker in the new Sinecure Books publication, Houston Rap Tapes:

“Houston is a cool city because number one: I like the weather. I like to play basketball, so it’s the only place I know where I can shoot hoop year-round…it’s an independent city. A lot of people do they own thing out here. We’re not predominantly followers. We pretty much do our own thing in Houston. A few people tryin’ to claim gangs and all that but that ain’t too prevalent out here to my knowledge. But it’s a cool city, man, and with the music scene bein’ like it is now, there’s a bigger spotlight on the city now because the world’s attention is on Houston now.

“I’ll go visit a lot of places but I wouldn’t trade just livin’ in Houston for nowhere.”
