Writer Lance Scott Walker has put together a mix of nearly five hours worth of Houston rap to celebrate the recent release of his book, fittingly titled Houston Rap. The book chronicles the history of Houston's scene with a forward from Bun B and amazing photographs from Peter Beste. The mix itself includes over 60 records from 1990 to present day with artists like DJ Screw, Geto Boys, Slim Thug, UGK and many more featured. The entire tracklist can be viewed below the stream.
