Paul Wall Gets Political On New LP "Fast Life'

With a media blitz already underway, Houston’s Paul Wall has confirmed a May release date for his third studio album, Fast Life. Although the first single “Bizzy Body” represents the party records and club life Houston is known for, Paul sought to bring strong social commentary that was not focused on in previous releases.

On “Daddy Wasn’t Home,” Wall highlights the struggles of his family dealing with his drug-addicted father.

With “Look At Me,” he details the harsh sacrifices made to achieve a successful Hip-Hop career.

The LP features guest spots from Too $hort, Yung Joc, Gorilla Zoe, Z-Ro, Lil’ Keke, Expensive Taste and Baby Bash.

Production credits include Travis Barker, Beanz & Kornbread, Mouse, and Antwan “Amadeus” Thompson.

In addition to the new album, Paul has confirmed that’s he’s squashed a long-standing beef with fellow Houston native Chamillionaire, and that his wife Crystal will be featured on E!’s Rapper Wives: The E! True Hollywood Story on April 29 at 10PM.

On the community outreach front, Paul Wall will be participating in the Texas Department of Transportation’s Click It or Ticket Campaign, which focuses on disseminating information on safety belt use to lower the state's high number of teen fatalities.

Paul Wall’s Fast Lane is set for release on May 12 through Swishahouse/Asylum.
