"Houston Rap" Deluxe Bundle
Southern-influenced rap music is becoming quite mainstream these days, but for those hip-hop heads that want to reminisce about OG Southern rap days, the new book from Sinecure Books is perfect. "Houston Rap" is comprised of photographs by Peter Beste and writing from Lance Scott Walker, as the two delve into the every day Houston hip-hop community, while profiling rap heavyweights from the area, including Bun B of UGK, Z-Ro, Big Mike, K-Rino, Willie D of the Geto Boys, Paul Wall DJ Screw and of course, Pimp C. The editor of the book described it as such, "We edited the book as a 24 hour glimpse into the culture. We take you from the projects to the studio to the strip club and back, all along with an on-going oral history narrative from the people of the culture."
The Deluxe Bundle includes a bunch of goodies: the Slipcased Exclusive version of the book with DJ Screw/Fat Pat 7” vinyl, a fold-out poster, Houston Rap Tapes (the accompanying publication of oral histories), a DVD of Ghetto Dreams (the Fat Pat documentary), a signed photographic print by Peter Beste, and a 2LP limited vinyl edition of DJ Screw’s All Screwed Up. The Bundle comes in a Sinecure Books tote bag.
Only 800 copies of the Bundle are available, and they're only available online for a price of $150. If the Bundle is too much for you to handle, you can cop the Slipcased version of the book for $49.95.
