Hip Hop Conference Site Now Live

Department News, Events, Exhibits, Houston Hip Hop

According to Urban Dictionary, awready is “slang for agreeing with something or an affirmation.”

This seems like a great name for the upcoming conference on Houston hip hop, since it’s easy to agree that AWREADY! The Houston Hip Hop Conference is going to be a great event! The conference will include an exhibit of Special Collections materials related to DJ Screw and Houston hip hop, along with panels and presentations about Houston hip hop.  Take a look at the web site for dates and details, and visit the site often as the conference dates approach and more information becomes available.

The conference is presented by the University of Houston Libraries, Rice University’s HERE Project, UH’s Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts, and African American Studies in UH’s College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences. For more information about the exhibit and conference, contact librarian Julie Grob at For updates about the exhibit and the Houston hip hop collection, follow Julie on Twitter.
