Just days before Houston, Texas plays host to the 2013 NBA All Star Game, The Houston Press has announced the development of a column written by Willie D of groundbreaking Houston rap group, The Geto Boys.
This isn’t Willie’s first go-round at writing as he once held a column at Vice.com called “Filibustin’ With Willie D.”
“The style would be me, Willie D,” he proposed to the Houston Press. “Funny, serious, unpredictable, diverse coverage of real-life shit, straight no chase [sic]. Sort of like the HP.”
The Houston Press has dubbed the column “Ask Willie D” and it will officially first appear online this Thursday at the alternative weekly newspaper, The Houston Press website, and followed by a paper version one week later.
Willie D said he created the column as a way to directly communicate with fans and others seeking advise on everything from relationships to parenting, politics to bullying and more.
Plans are also underway to syndicate the column in other U.S. and foreign markets.
