Paul Wall & Chamillionaire Headline SXSW "Best In Texas"


Austin, TX – OGPR and AllHipHop have joined together for this years SXSW festival to bring you the “Best In Texas” showcase at La Zona Rosa on Wednesday, March 17th. Headliners for the showcase are Paul Wall and Chamillionaire as they kick off their national “In Love With My Money” tour. The tour currently runs through mid-April, with more dates being added. Tour information can be found at Both artists have albums dropping this Summer.

The rest of the line-up for “Best In Texas” is comprised of acts representing various regions of the Lone Star State with performances by Houston’s Trae Tha Truth, who is currently pushing his single, “Inkredible ft. Lil Wayne & Rick Ross”, Chalie Boy, who hails from the Calvert/Hearne region and came to national attention via the hit single, “I Look Good” and Dallas artists Dorrough, who made a big splash with his single, “Ice Cream Paint Job” and Fat Pimp. Austin’s League of Extraordinary Gz, Kyle Lee and Question? for San Antonio and Big Sid repping San Angelo round out the night’s event. Swisha House’s Michael “5000” Watts will provide the hosting duties with DJ’s Grip and Hella Yella spinning between sets.

A staple in the industry, OGPR has provided public relations services to a host of Hip Hop artists over the past 10 years, representing names both regional and national including Chamillionaire, Paul Wall, DJ Whoo Kid, Pimp C, Slim Thug, Yo Gotti, Bobby Valentino, Trae Tha Truth and 3-6 Mafia. AllHipHop has been online for the past 11 years. Having worked together closely over the years, it just made sense for the two companies to collaborate for one of music’s biggest annual showcase events – SXSW, and help Paul and Chamillionaire kick off their tour with a bang.

"When I heard that Chamillionaire and Paul Wall were reuniting again on stage at SXSW I knew this was a marquee event AllHipHop had to be a part of, this is history" said Steve Raze.

"I remember performing at my first SXSW and not really even speaking to Paul, and now in 2010 we will be touring together and sharing the same SXSW stage" remembers platinum, Grammy-winning artist, Chamillionaire. "I’m sure our collective fans would be proud to see how far we have come and excited to see us together again live."

"It feels great to have the opportunity to be back on stage with Cham" adds Paul Wall. "To start our tour together in Austin, at SXSW means a lot because that’s one of the 1st places we used to do shows coming up trying to be discovered. We started out as an opening act, now we're the headliner. Hopefully this will inspire the up and coming artists to follow in our footsteps."
