This week's cover story is about Quanell X, a man who needs no introduction to most news-watching Houstonians but who may not be the man you think he is.
Here he answers a few questions from photographer Daniel Kramer. See what he has to say about the biggest misconception about him, his greatest regret and how he was a kid who hated birthday cakes and cartoons.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
