Paul Wall Targets June for New Album
Paul Wall plans to follow up a recent Chamillionaire reunion tour with a June release of his 4th studio album, Heart of a Champion.
Wall has alternated production duties between Houston team Beanz N Kornbread, and Expensive Taste band mate Travis Barker, who along with Skinhead Rob rounds out the group.
By splitting the sound evenly, Paul Wall is confident the project will appeal to new listeners and older fans.
“My new album sounds incredible!” Wall said. “With Travis Barker's unique style, and with Beanz N Kornbread, the mash up is an awesome combination.”
Heart of a Champion also boasts features from Raekwon, Jim Jones, Yelawolf, Bun B, Chamillionaire, Slim Thug Devin the Dude, and Lil Keke.
The first single, “I’m On Patron,” chronicles of night of partying that’s punctuated by too much alcohol consumption.
In addition to the new album, Paul Wall is settling into his new duties as President of the Recording Academy’s Texas Chapter. The position requires Wall to network with musicians of all genres to ensure that Texas is represented accordingly for the Grammy’s voting body.
Paul Wall’s last album was 2009’s Fast Life.
Heart of a Champion is due in stores on June 29.
