… Hip Hop


Native of Eat St. Louis Illinois, Houston’s career took off after migrating to Omaha, Nebraska. He organized the ‘Scribble Cru;’ a collection of graffiti artists, as well as the ‘Alliance Allstar B-boys and B-girls’ (who have toured with legends: Ice T, Salt & Pepa, Foxy Brown, Juvenile, Vanilla Ice, Tone-Loc, Tech N9Ne, Da Brat, Trina and many more). Alexander then hosted ‘Tuesday Night Titans’ – a weekly rap battle –which spurred Houston to create a record label, Hustle Music, and he has been involved with Omaha’s underground hip hop scene ever since. Alexander is also involved in the ‘Culture Shock School Tour’, a program in schools that teaches kids about the history of hip hop culture, from graffiti art and the music scene to break dancing and rap. The program also focuses on the origins and originators of the culture. Today he continues to keep up with his love of music as a local DJ and on-air talent at KOPW Power 106.9 on Sunday nights from 6-8 p.m. on ‘Power Mix Sunday Night.’
