“The Houston, Texas neighborhoods of Fifth Ward, Third Ward, and South Park have grown to be hallowed ground for modern hip hop culture, possessing self-contained celebrities, entrepreneurs, support networks, and a micro-economy of their own.” Having spent nine years documenting its culture, photographer Peter Beste will release Houston Rap – a hardcover 272-page book that provides an intimate look into the everyday life of Texas’s most notable hip-hop community. With words from writer Lance Scott Walker and a foreword from the legendary Bun B, Houston Rap profiles artists like Willie D of the Geto Boys, Lil’ Troy, Paul Wall, Z-Ro, as well as the late greats Pimp C and DJ Screw. The unique book also features community leaders, producers, businessmen and so on. Beste says of his project, “The idea was always to provide an insight into the community of arguably the most powerful hip hop scene in the world today.” You can pre-order your deluxe copy of Houston Rap online now.
