The Grammy-nominated, platinum-selling “People’s Champ,” Paul Wall is gearing up for the release of his third album, “Fast Life,” being released May 12 on SwishaHouse/Asylum. “Fast Life” features an all-star cast of producers (Travis Barker, Beanz & Kornbread, Mouse, and Antwan “Amadeus” Thompson) along with a complementary selection of superstar features that include: Baby Bash, Yung Joc, Gorilla Zoe, Too Short, Z-Ro, Lil’ Keke & Expensive Taste.
Four years ago, multi-platinum selling rapper Mike Jones debuted his first album, “Who Is Mike Jones?” and re-ignited an interest in the Houston rap scene. Now, in 2009 he is off to a great start again with his first single “Next to You,” which is off his sophomore CD “The Voice” due in stores April 28 on Ice Age/Swishahouse/Asylum Records.
Jive Records’ legendary hip-hop duo UGK recently announced the release of their final studio album “UGK: UGK 4 Life.” The sixth studio-album from the influential southern duo, Bun B and the late Pimp C, is a poignant culmination of their musical legacy and was issued on March 31. “UGK: UGK 4 Life” embodies the pure essence of UGK and the late Pimp C’s signature production incorporating the down and gritty Texas sound they created over two decades ago in Port Arthur, Texas.
