Christmas came early.
“Houston Rap” is a book by photographer Peter Beste and writer Lance Scott Walker that spent 9 years documenting Houstonâ€™s vibrant hip-hop scene with features on profiles such as UGKâ€™s Bun B (who also provides a foreword), Z-Ro, the Geto Boysâ€™ Willie D, Lilâ€™ Troy, and Paul Wall, with “reflections on the lives of departed legends such as DJ Screw, Pimp C, and Big Hawk”. Houston Rap is available now from Sinecure Books.
To celebrate the release of the book, Lance Scott Walker has assembled more than 60 songs from two decades of Houston hip-hop into an almost 5 hour long tour of Houston rap. (Via Spin)
