A vivid journey through a southern hip hop bastion, Welcome 2 Houston offers readers an inside look at a unique musical culture.
“In Welcome 2 Houston, Langston Collin Wilkins examines hip hop’s deep connections to space, place, and heritage by weaving interviews, observations, and his own Houston upbringing into a richly informative and emotionally resonant work about an essential part of Black Americana.”--Eric Harvey, author of Who Got the Camera? A History of Rap and Reality

I grew up listing to HipHop & Rap , and being born and raised in the Houston area i requested this book to read something that i am familiar with and to get the opportunity to learn more. I appreciate the amount of time the author took to do their research and interview artists who are apart of the foundation of Houston HIpHop.
I also like how the author took his time with going into detail about certain aspects of hiphop that many people don’t even pay attention to.
Thank you to NetGalley and to The University of Illinois press for the opportunity to read this book early. I cannot wait for its official release.
Very informative book based on Houston rap artist. I grew up sixty miles south of Houston and frequent the city but this opened my eyes to a ton of information. I took notes and googled many things mentioned in this book. Of course I’ve also gone down to take photos of some of the artist murals close to Minute Maid park.
