Houston Rap is an immersion into the everyday life of the Houston hip hop community. This hardcover 272 page book features the photography of Peter Beste, who spent 9 years documenting the culture alongside writer Lance Scott Walker. The book is edited by Johan Kugelberg who also worked with Peter on his previous book True Norwegian Black Metal (Vice) which to date has sold through 8 editions.
