Paul Wall - Club Fuze - December 29, 2007

From the People's Champ department... Paul Wall @ Club Fuze on Dec 29th. Looks like it's the club's grand opening and they're hiring on craiglist. LOL. Very obscure, but if you goto the Club Fuze myspace page and click on "Events", it will tell you that you can buy tickets at the club starting today.

Just some friendly chiding, the guys at Club Fuze should get their act together. I mean first off, is it Fuze or Fuse? Let's get a site up atleast telling people how to get to the party. (505 Neches, Austin, TX, 78701) AND let's tell people about the party! ;)

More info:

Paul Slayton (born on March 30, 1980[1]) better known by his stage name Paul Wall, is a rapper, DJ, promoter and jeweller, originally part of Houston hip-hop group The Color Changin' Click.[1]. Wall is a graduate of Jersey Village High School and studied mass communications at The University of Houston for three years.[2] He is affiliated with Swishahouse Records, having released several albums under the label as well as collaborating with other rappers signed to the label.

At a young age Paul Wall, along with fellow rap music artist and childhood friend Chamillionaire, decided to make music his career. One day while promoting themselves at a Texas event, he and Chamillionaire ran into Michael "5000" Watts, a popular mixtape DJ from northern Houston. After proposing to do promotions for Watts' company, Swishahouse, Chamillionaire and Paul Wall came to Watts' studio and convinced Watts to allow them freestyle on an intro to Watts' radio show on Houston hip-hop station KBXX.[3] Watts, who was convinced to rap on the record, enjoyed the freestyle so much that he put the verses on one of his mixtapes. The freestyle became so popular in the streets that Chamillionaire and Paul Wall became regular staples on Houston's mixtape circuit, appeared on several of Watts' mixtapes, and became permanent members of Swishahouse.
