From Nancy B:


It is always an honor to work with an artist whose name is synonymous with his genre. Paul Wall is such an artist and OGPR is proud to announce his recent inclusion to our roster.

With two #1 album debuts, a Platinum plaque and a Grammy nomination under his belt, not to mention having some of the hottest celebs in the nation rocking his signature diamond-encrusted grills at one point or another, Paul Wall is the embodiment of the Hip Hop success story. His journey began as a promoter for hometown indie label, Swisha House, along with childhood friend-turned-partner-in-rhyme, Chamillionaire, and culminated with him being largely instrumental in the growth of the Houston rap movement and it's rise into the national arena. There have been a total of 7 albums since then.

2010 finds Paul working on album #8, entitled Heart of a Champion, which is slated for a Summer release on Swisha House/Asylum/WMG. The first single, I'm On Patron, is a lyrical documentary of a feeling that most of us have experienced - and greatly regretted the next day - that of simply having too much fun of the liquid variety. Produced by Houston duo, Beanz n Kornbread, I'm On Patron is the perfect accompaniment to that 'blame it on the alchohol' kind of night.

Production credits will also go to long-time friend, Travis Barker, who, along with Paul and Skinhead Rob, form the group Expensive Taste, who will also have several songs on the album. Features are expected to include Jim Jones, Big Gipp and fellow Houstonites Chamillionaire, Slim Thug and Devin the Dude.

2010 also finds Paul's career coming full circle as he sets out on tour with Chamillionaire; a development that long-time fans of the two's early work have dreamt of, but were sure would never happen. The two kick off with a headlining appearance at Austin's SXSW festival for a Best of Texas show at La Zona Rosa on March 17th. The SXSW show also features performances by Dorrough, Trae Tha Truth, Fat Pimp, Chalie Boy and many more. Other stops along the tour include Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Dallas, Houston, Denver and Albuquerque with more cities to be announced soon.

Other places to watch out for Paul Wall are -
