Rapper Paul Wall Visits Special Collections

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 For updates about the exhibit and the Houston hip hop collection, follow Julie on Twitter.
