Rap-A-Lot Records, U.G.K. (Pimp C and Bun B), Paul Wall, Beyonce,
Chamillionaire and Scarface are all names synonymous with contemporary
hip-hop. And they have one thing in common: Houston. Long before the
country came to know the chopped and screwed style of rap from the Bayou
City in the late 1990s, hip-hop in Houston grew steadily and produced
some of the most prolific independent artists in the industry. With
early roots in jazz, blues, R&B and zydeco, Houston hip-hop evolved
not only as a musical form but also as a cultural movement. Join Maco L.
Faniel as he uncovers the early years of Houston hip-hop from the music
to the culture it inspired.
