Paul Wall Gets Slowed and Throwed; “Chopped & Screwed” Album Out Now
NEW YORK, NY -- Houston's hip-hop heavyweight Paul Wall will release a "Chopped & Screwed" remix version of his sophomore album, "GET MONEY - STAY TRUE," that will hit stores April 17 on SwishaHouse/Asylum/Atlantic. The original release recently debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Rap Albums chart and #8 on the Billboard 200. Screwed and chopped by legendary DJ and SwishaHouse founder/owner Michael 5000 Watts, the syrupy version features Snoop Dogg, Jermaine Dupri, Lil KeKe, Freeway, Juelz Santana, Trina, Jon B, Expensive Taste, Yung Redd, E Class and Crys Wall all slowed down to a molasses-like pace.
"This is another classic remix Texas album," stated Paul. "Michael Watts did his thing on this album with incredible blends, cuts and scratches, and fans should look out for some surprises on the album as well."
Paul Wall will be making several chopped & screwed ringtones available exclusively to Virgin Mobile USA customers through May 11 including the single from the current #1 Rap Album in the country, "I'm Throwed," featuring Jermaine Dupri. Additionally, www.Down-South.com will host an exclusive listening party of the "Chopped & Screwed" version of "GET MONEY - STAY TRUE" by Paul Wall today, Monday, April 16.
Beginning May 11, Paul Wall will join Fall Out Boy visiting 44 cities on the Honda Civic Tour. The tour will also feature the bands +44, The Academy Is... and Cobra Starship.
Wall recently teamed with Zenetti to bring a new level of shine to the auto aftermarket with a signature line of grills and wheels encrusted with cubic zirconium stones. The grills and rims wheels will be available for coupes, SUVs, Chrysler 300, Dodge Magnums, Chargers and Cadillac Escalades. The wheels will range from 19 to 26 inches; both will be available in the first quarter of 2007.
Wall was recently nominated for a Grammy® Award for Rap Performance by a Duo or Group for "Grillz," with Nelly, Ali and Gipp and joined filmmaker Raquel Cepeda on a trip to Freetown, Sierra Leone this past summer with a contingency from the United Nations and VH1 to raise awareness of conflict diamonds. "Grills by Paul Wall" is donating 100 percent of the profits from sales of all the grills that contain red stones to humanitarian efforts in Sierra Leone and other war impoverished countries affected by the diamond trade, in hopes to help repair the damage caused in part by the illicit smuggling and mining of diamonds. The documentary, "Bling: A Planet Rock," aired in February 2007.
