Chamillionaire And Paul Wall Officially Reunite On Texas Stage
Chamillionaire is the headlining act on BET’s Black College Tour.
He took to the stage last night at Texas State University and stunned over 2,000 fans when he brought former rival Paul Wall out on the stage for a performance.
The duo performed the single "N Luv Wit My Money" from their collaboration album Get Ya Mind Correct as members of the Color Changin’ Click.
"I was up at Texas Southern University to watch my boy Lil' Keke perform for BET College Tour and Chamillionaire was there too," Paul Wall said. "He asked me to come out with him and perform our song and we just did it spur of the moment. The crowd was really shocked and excited when they saw us together up there. That was the first time in at least five years we preformed it together. "
The rappers were affiliated with Michael "5000" Watts’ Swishahouse movement but signed a recording deal with Paid in Full Entertainment imprint, owned by Houston radio personality Madd Hatta.
In 2002 CCC released their debut album Get Ya Mind Correct, which moved over 200,000 copies independently and earned both rappers major label deals.
The group soon fell apart, due to money and artistic direction. The childhood friends refrained from badmouthing each other, but refused to speak or work together.
Paul Wall returned to Swishahouse and released two albums, while Chamillionaire launched his Chamillitary imprint, which is distributed by Universal Records.
In 2005’s Paul Wall’s The People’s Champ moved over 176,000 copies in its first week and topped the Billboard 200 chart, while 2007’s Get Money, Stay True debuted at #8 and moved over 92,000 units its first week in stores.
Chamillionaire achieved success in the Hip-Hop world as well.
In 2005 Chamillionaire’s The Sound of Revenge debuted at #10 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart, moving over 130,000, copies in its first week out.
The album also produced the Grammy Award winning single "Ridin’," which is also certified as the best selling ringtone of all time.
In 2007, Chamillionaire released Ultimate Victory, which debuted at #8 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart and moved over 79,000 units its first week on the shelves.
