The Houston, Texas, neighborhoods of Fifth Ward, Third Ward and South Park have grown to be hallowed ground for modern rap culture, populated with celebrities, entrepreneurs, support networks and a micro-economy of their own. Photographer Peter Beste (photographer of True Norwegian Black Metal) and writer Lance Scott Walker spent nine years documenting the most influential style in twenty-first-century hip hop and the vibrant inner city culture from which it stems. Houston Rap, edited by Johan Kugelberg, profiles noted artists such as Bun B of UGK, Z-Ro, Big Mike, K-Rino, Willie D of the Geto Boys, Lil’ Troy and Paul Wall, alongside reflections on the lives of departed legends such as DJ Screw, Pimp C and Big Hawk. The book also features community leaders, rappers, producers, businessmen and family members, all providing an astonishing and important insight into a great American cultural narrative. In addition to featuring Beste’s previously unseen images of the contemporary Houston rap scene, Houston Rap includes a detailed timeline charting the growth of rap music in Houston from its origins to the present.

'Houston Rap,' the book, is a handsome collection of photos by Peter Beste and interviews by Lance Scott Walker that capture the city’s hip-hop history in full. (Jon Carananica The New York Times)
Peter Beste is a Houston-born photographer with a love for the early Houston rap sound. Some time after college, he was drawn back to the scene, and reached out to some of the area’s unsung heroes to tell Houston’s story beyond the syrup, cars, and bass. (Jordan Lebeau FRANK 151)
Having spent nine years documenting its culture, photographer Peter Beste will release Houston Rap – a hardcover 272-page book that provides an intimate look into the everyday life of Texas’s most notable hip-hop community. (Roberts Marshalll Hypebeast)
Houston Rap, the second release from Sinecure Books (available Nov. 15th), takes a look at everyday life in the Houston Hip Hop community. It features the stunning photography of Peter Beste who, along with writer Lance Scott Walker immersed themselves into the culture, spending 9 years documenting it. The book contains profiles of Houston notables such as Bun B, UGK, Z-Ro, K-Rino, Big Mike, Lil’ Troy, Paul Wall and Willie D of The Geto Boys as well as legends who have since passed, like DJ Screw, Big Hawk and Pimp C. It strolls through the sacred neighborhoods such as Fifth Ward, Third Ward and South Park, exploring the everyday goings on with rappers, producers, community leaders, family members, and businessmen. This insight into the culture has never been documented like this before. Touching not just Hip Hop stories, but weaving a tale of the special American narrative of this culture and human life itself, Houston Rap explores the real life told through the lyrics of the music itself.

(Antwuan Flanders SOFADELICS)
Peter Beste formerly made an awesome book about the Norwegian black metal scene, but in his newest work, Beste focuses his lens on his syrup-drenched hometown of Houston, TX. Via Noisey: Page-big photos that accompany a breadth of interviews, with Walker talking to effectively everyone from around then (between about 1985 to last year) and getting good info out of them. There’s good stuff from big names like Scarface and Bun B (who wrote the intro) to Chingo Bling and whoever your favorite Houston rapper is to KB Da Kidnappa to what seems like the better half of South Park Coalition. After reading this book, you’ll know how the Geto Boys (née Ghetto) were formed and evolved; about the last days of DJ Screw’s life, about Pimp C’s talents, about Willie D’s mom stabbing a white man in the 1960s, and about ill-fated tours to St. Louis and a thorough explanation of most facets of the after-hours (read: strip club) phenomenon. You’ll learn that DJ Screw’s dad goes by Pappa Screw and that he refers to his deceased son as Screw, and that O.G. Style predated Ghetto Boys as far as rap went in Houston and that Z-Ro has what look like Audioengine A2 speakers with the yellow cones in his room. Talk of life in the Third and Fifth Wards and South Park, Houston neighborhoods and home to a lot of the principals involved, is interspersed throughout, and it sings. (The Daily Swarm)
"This is a book mostly about America. Beste and Walker's subjects and photos speak for themselves, and leafing through HOUSTON RAP is like breaking into a neighborhood and eavesdropping into its conversation...it's almost like Studs Terkel's 'Working' but about people in Houston who may or may not have been rappers and musicians: Their lives are in this book." (Noisey/Vice)
The Houston Rap Book Has Some of the Greatest Rap Photography You'll Ever See. This is an art book, yes, and it’d be a mistake to second-bill the photography here. Beste, of course, has been taking these photos for a while―some of them you may have seen in a VICE photo issue from seven years back. (He also produced the True Norwegian Black Metal video series for Vice, which was based on his book.) Houston Rap seems at first a bit of a stretch as far as subject matter goes, but it’s not that different. The access in both books is incredible, and the context for these images are the best out of any subculture books out there. Are these things all in the frame? Is that baby actually sitting on the counter next to that small plate? (Snake Noisey)

Houston Rap has a simple two-pronged goal when it hits bookshelves on November 25th: document the Houston Hip-Hop scene and its relationship with the rich, in all senses of the terms, community it continues to flourish in. Famed photographer, Peter Beste, and Texas bred writer, Lance Scott Walker, spent 9 years interviewing and photographing locals as well as important figures who have witnessed and contributed to the growth of the culture. But the book is much more than a collection of pictures and words put together on the Hip-Hop culture. It’s a detailed tour on the good and the bad, the past and a look into the future, and everything in between on H-Town. This book is a very necessary addition to your library. Period. (Bryan Hahn The Source)

By 2013, the Houston rap scene has been recognized as one of the most important and fertile in the country. And now nine years of photographing and cataloging the goings-on of Willie D of the Geto Boys, Lil’ Troy, Paul Wall, Z-Ro, Pimp C and DJ Screw will see the light of day in a 272-page hardcover book under the Sinecure label. While copy in the volume was handled by Lance Scott Walker, the photographs were taken during almost a decade’s worth of shooting on the part of Peter Beste. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg―the foreword of the book was written by none other than Bun B, himself a lecturer at Rice University in Houston. Plenty of shots of lean and weed make their way into the volume, as you can see. (Dale EISINGER COMPLEX)

I went to this amazing opening last night for the photographs of the Houston rap scene by Peter Beste. The subjects included Bun B of UGK, Willie D of the Geto Boys, K-Rino, Street Military, and Lil’ Troy. (Process&Skills)
I been fanning Peter Beste since when ? I can’t even remember how we met, but I remember the day we sat at a cafe on Prince Street, me paging through his luscious prints. Page after page after page of madness. I was home as my fingers swept across the protective plastic and my eyes bulged out my head and my heart did a little dance, as each turn of the page took me somewhere else. And so it has come, as the inevitable does, Houston Rap is now a book from Sinecure and an exhibition at Boo Hooray Gallery, New York, opening November 7. I like it like this. Peter graciously agreed to an interview, and to let me share of his work. These are a few of my favorite things. Enjoy (Miss Rosen)
