Big H.A.W.K. is arguably the most adored rapper in Houston history. He was* so likeable, in fact, that he managed to turn a positively ludicrous thesis statement—basically: "Look, I know I cheat on my wife with you, but you gotta chill with all of that Let's Be Together talk because that's silly, and, frankly, disrespectful to my relationship that I, myself, am disrespecting"—into an all-time great epistle.

*"Was" because he was murdered in 2006, an unsolved case that, as you might anticipate, still resonates profoundly in Houston.
