Rapper Paul Wall Visits Special Collections

categories: Collections, Houston Hip Hop

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.

To inquire about donations, please contact Librarian Julie Grob at jgrob@uh.edu. For updates about the exhibit and the Houston hip hop collection, follow Julie on Twitter.
