Who are the Houston Intellectuals?

Who are the Houston Intellectuals?

They go by the name of Houston Intellectuals. Their description on Twitter, “intellectual anarchy,” is one of the few things which exemplifies what they stand for or are even trying to do. We also know that they all derive from Alief, an infamous school district in the Southwest side of Houston. We know they make music and from time to time release articles of clothing. Aside from that, not much else is known about them as a whole. Well, we can actually make 1 more assumption about them and that is that their music is influenced by drugs. HEAVILY!

Their group consists of five members: DOMINUS, Zae, Jeff thy Earl, ssgurd, and AZMEROM.

DOMINUS is the producer who produces everything they release.

Their three releases include: “The Houston Intellectuals”, Zae’s “72 Hours” EP, and DOMINUS’ self-titled debut mixtape. They also released multiple singles and DOMINUS’s “screw tape” entitled “LEAN LAND VOL. 1.” Their music is exclusively available on Soundcloud.com, with the exception of 2 videos on YouTube. They are very active on Twitter (@HtxIntellects), though each member has a personal account which gives a bit more insight into their personalities.

Anyway after asking them for an interview for what seems like months, they finally agreed to do one, but under their own conditions.

  1. “We don’t want you to say who said what, so just quote anything we say as coming from Houston Intellectuals, no specific names.”
  2. “Only 6 questions, so make them count”
  3. “We have to be faded when we link”

We agreed to meet in a forest they call “the forest of knowledge.” From the outside looking in, you would never think that these kids could hold a deep conversation, especially since they were looking so out of it. But even under the heavy influence of Xanax, they gave me a lot more than I expected.

So anyways, here it is, the very first interview the Houston Intellectuals have ever given:

  1. What is this intellectual anarchy thing about?

“We all kind of have our own definition for it but for the most part it’s like disorder, only in a more cognitive, planned out way. Like everybody knows this path laid out for the youth, you know? You go to school, find yourself a job that you’re probably gonna hate, and you’re kind of forced to be content with it. It’s almost as if the youth is being scared into following this path. We say fck that. Who’s to say you can’t make it in life relying on yourself, following your dream? Nah you can’t be scared. Make your own path, fuck what society says.” – Houston Intellectuals

  1. What are you guy’s favorite hobbies?

”Drugs, Music, and Thinking.” – Houston Intellectuals

  1. 5 favorite artists?

“Uhh for the moment? Hold up umm…. shouts out slug christ, shouts out smug mane, shouts out Bones, shouts out Yung Lean,  of course always love for Mac. And most of all shouts out Maxo Kream bro he’s putting Alief and Houston on the map.” – Houston Intellectuals

  1. Favorite drugs?

“We don’t discriminate, we love all drugs, well most. We all have our preferences … LSD, … amphetamines, … benzos, …Molly, and … purp. We do all drugs equally though, they’re great. You’d be surprised what you can find in your grandma’s medicine cabinet haha. You heard of trammies? Or GHB? Oh yeah and opiates, all that shit goes hard. Just make sure you always have a blunt in hand. – Houston Intellectuals

  1. It’s been a while since you guys dropped music, any specific reason for that?

“We’ve all been perfecting our craft and dealing with life & shit. We got hella music in the archives we just haven’t released it lately. We also just been experimenting with hella drugs & hella sounds. But really we all got shit we’re working on like solo projects. So expect a couple projects and hella new music really soon. After a few of those we’re eventually planning on dropping ‘Houston Intellectuals Vol. 2’. We’re coming back stronger than ever though. And oh yeah we see the fans that are sticking with us so don’t think y’all are going unnoticed.

  1. Any final words?

“Yeah a couple actually. One, follow your fucking dreams. I know everybody says that shit but if you believe then you can fucking achieve. We’re all 19 years old just out here doing our shit bruh just making moves. Yeah we still fuck up and make mistakes but we’re learning a lot as we go.

Also, don’t assume you know who we are or what we do. We’ve heard and seen so many misconceptions people have about us, it’s honestly hysterical. So yeah fuck everybody.

Honestly though we all kind of hate each other too (hahahaha). The only reason we chill together is because we all provide some sort of skill that’s gonna help to get us rich. But no seriously we all hate each other.

Oh yeah and if you can’t handle your fucking drugs, don’t fucking use them. You’re only giving drugs a bad name, and we don’t need that.

And lastly, WE’RE NOT A FUCKING ‘GROUP’ NIGGA WE’RE A FUCKING CULT.

1x for Alief, Weeeeeeeeesttttttttttt”
