In August, Special Collections was happy to welcome rapper Paul Wall, a native Houstonian who attended the University of Houston. Wall, who was nominated for a Grammy in 2007 and got his start on the local label SwishaHouse Records, was here for a private tour of the archives and to take a look at materials from the DJ Screw Sound Recordings.
Some DJ Screw materials will be a part of the upcoming exhibit DJ Screw and the Rise of Houston Hip Hop. The exhibit will be on display and open to the public from March 19 – September 21, 2012 in M.D. Anderson Library on the University of Houston Campus.
