Houston recording label Swishahouse is the first hip-hop label — and first label of any music genre — to have materials archived by Rice University’s Center for Engaged  Research and Collaborative Learning (CERCL), part of the Kinder Institute for Urban Research. These materials, which will be housed at the Woodson Research Center Special Collections and UniversityArchives in Rice’s Fondren Library, chronicle the origin and achievements of Swishahouse for future generations of scholars, artists and other interested parties.
