Hip-Hop and Horses

August 25, 2019

– [Baldenna Tha King] Houston rap to me is the backbone of hip-hop, but the music that I make is different. ♪ Trailride in my city ♪ There’s no one in my lane
that’s doing what I’m doing. I’m Baldenna Tha King,
and I make trail ride rap. ♪ “Trailride in My City,”
by Baldenna Tha King ♪ (country music) Trail riding is basically our culture, is basically what we love to do. It’s really a lifestyle. If you not here to witness it, then you wouldn’t understand it. Back in the day, the people
before my grandfather, they used to saddle up
they mule, they donkey, backpacking through the
woods and they made a trail. Well we don’t have woods no more. So we ride up and down the streets, two by two, in a line,
representing trail riding. Riding trucks, playing mud, ride horses, get on the party wagon. We probably be four hours,
probably be five hours. The numbers vary into the thousands. We have our own community. We have our own little world. You know, you got your blues
and you got your zydeco. That’s a Cajun-style of music
that come from Louisiana that’s played by a band, an accordion, a rubboard, lead guitar,
some people use keyboards. Growing up as a young kid, I was always on a horse, trail riding. So what I did was, I interpret
all that into my music. ♪ He wasn’t born in this country life ♪ ♪ I knew he wasn’t raised right ♪ ♪ Got a taste of this country girl ♪ ♪ My homie went ray rights ♪ Well when I started rapping, there was really no rap
allowed on trail ride. I came in and I wanted to change that. Trying to break the
barrier for young people to enjoy trail ride
because I was a youngster out there on the trail ride. If you had a hobby such as trail riding, it’ll pull you away from the street. I know because it’s a lot
of people that trail ride that used to sell drugs,
that used to, you know, do a lot of stuff that wasn’t right. Now they come to trail riding,
and they love my music. ♪ I’m hard pressed up for money ♪ ♪ Trailride in my city ♪ ♪ We party in the club ♪ ♪ Trailride in my city ♪ ♪ It ain’t nothing but love ♪ The music that I make is just
for the culture I represent just for the trail riders,
just for the zydeco artists, just for everything that we do country. I really feel like I had
something to do with it, the changing of the face of trail riding. (hip hop beat)

  1. Being a horse person … wow those poor horses how would you people feel if someone was hanging the bit like that … and those bits hurt the horses so much and alot of those horses are so skinny and look terrified

  2. It just doesn't matter it doesn't matter what white people may have black people always got to come in and fucking make it weird

  3. Represent! We were at Spring Branch Stables right by Acres Homes back in the day before it closed down! Northwest side! Houston represent!!

  4. Oh, I have my own paint horse, Scooter. Id love to do things like that. This is awesome, maybe sometime I could do something like this, and do something my. heart is in. Keep enjoying it!

  5. please don't stop with your passion. i truly believe what you do and it is amazing. i love the culture and the purpose you have.

  6. Riding hard on road surfaces is miserable for them (I've ridden for 10 years) and can lead to feet and leg problems. These people dont seem at all educated or concerned about horse welfare

  7. The poor horsemanship in this is appalling and should be reported to youtube. At best it is borderline cruel animal treatment… at worst..I don't even want to know.

  8. I’m sorry but the thumbnail bothers me like he’s pulling wayyyyy to hard on that bit. My horse is very soft in the mouth so I don’t have to pull hard but it bothers me

  9. I do not know how to say to u but u really bad rider.. Not just that ur horse have pain 'cause of u! 0:13 I mean just look this poor horse

  10. I do not know how to say to u but u really bad rider.. Not just that ur horse have pain 'cause of u! 0:13 I mean just look this poor horse

  11. There is this PAWG that rides her horse all over my city. Blonde hair all the way down past her ass hanging off the side of the horse. Ass for days, slammin hot with a face like a tarded pug. I'd still hit that. Riding horses all day I bet she could pick a dime up off a glass surface with her vaj.
    Just thought I'd share.
    Have a nice day. ?
