Slim Thug and Paul Wall_0

A Long Convo With...Chamillionaire, Paul Wall, Dr. Teeth, Slim Thug And Bun B (Pg. 2)

How did it feel to do the video with Chamillionaire after all this time?

Paul Wall: It felt great.  It’s all about all of us coming together, putting our differences aside.  Part of that is me and Chamillion putting our differences to the side and moving forward.  We’re here trying to take back the music scene and take charge and be leaders in the Texas music movement.

You have a new album coming out too right?

Paul Wall: Yeah, it’s called, The Heart of a Champion.  It’s come out June 29.  The first single is "I’m on Patron" and I’m shooting the video with Dr. Teeth in a couple weeks.  Travis Barker produced half of the album.  A lot of people know him from being the drummer from Blink 182 but his hip-hop production is incredible.  He got a different viewpoint being from another genre of music.  It’s real instrumental and not just drum samples.  It’s crazy.

You also have an iPhone app about to drop too?

Paul Wall: Yeah, it’s called Paul Wall 360.  It’s a fan app where you can get pictures, exclusive music to download and preview and get on iTunes.  We got a game coming soon for it, too.  You can get Twitter feed updates, YouTube updates from all the videos I put up and see what shows we got coming up.  It’s a free app and it’ll be out in another week.

What was it like to work with these two on their reunion video?

Slim Thug: It’s good to see them back together.  That’s how I knew them.  They came to SwishaHouse together.  They finally got back together and put the bullshit aside and it’s a good look.  I feel like we back at SwishaHouse or something.

You have a new LP you’re working on as well?

Slim Thug: It’s titled The Thug Show.  So far I got features from Lil Wayne, Yo Gotti, Nipsey Hustle and Z-Ro.  I just been working.  I’ll have something out by the end of summer. 

You also cut off your braids and took out your grill.  Why?

Slim Thug: I’m bout to be 30 on September 8.  It’s grown man shit.  I been doing this since I was 15 and I always said when I turn 30, I’m cutting off the braids and taking out the grill and since it’s close to that time, I said fuck it.  I’m glad I did, too, cuz I get mo bitches now.  I’m gonna get me a lawyer bitch now.

As the elder statesman, how does it feel to see these two work it out and make music again together?

Bun B:  I think it’s a great thing for hip-hop in general.  When you have good people that make good music together come together and make great music, it’s a great thing.  We don’t worry about circumstances; we just appreciate the opportunity to see great music being made again.  It’s definitely a resurgence of Houston music right now.  The second wave is coming.  This is just something to kick everybody in the nuts, like you better get it right because we trying to get it down here in the H.

Tory Lanez Sued For Alleged Attack In Miami Nightclub

Tory Lanez is facing legal trouble over an alleged altercation that went down inside Miami’s LIV nightclub last year. Christopher “Prince” Harty, an up-and-coming artist and Miami promoter who appeared on Love & Hip-Hop: Miami claims that Lanez attacked him last November.

The onetime reality star alleges that Lanez, along with his entourage and security team, punched and attacked him in the nightclub. According to reports, Prince claims to have suffered blunt force trauma to his head, neck, and chest, in addition to contusions, bruises and anxiety, as a result of the incident. He is suing for unspecified damages.

“They backed me into a corner, and once I was there, they started stomping on me, jumping me,” he recalled to NBC Miami.

He believes that the friction stemmed from an Instagram post about music. “They felt that I was insinuating that they stole the record from me, and I was just like, no, I would never do that, that was never my intention. I had no issue with him at all.”

A portion of the incident was captured on cellphone video. Prince stated that he knew Lanez prior to the run-in, and helped get him into clubs before.

His attorney, Marwan Porter of Porter Law Firm, called the violent incident “a chronic problem” with Lanez who is accused of shooting Megan Thee Stallion in July. The 28-year-old recording artist has yet to publicly address either incident.

Cardi B Opens Up About Filing For Divorce From Offset

Cardi B took to Instagram Live on Friday (Sept. 18) to air out a few things about filing for divorce from Offset.

The Bronx rapper made it clear that she didn’t file for divorce as a publicity stunt to promote her upcoming album. “I’m not doing it for clout and on top of that I don’t need stunts to sell music,” she said. “I’m not [trying to] brag but don’t ever say I’m doing anything for clout. My first album is three-times platinum and I didn’t need no stunts to do that. My [“Wap”] single is no. 1 worldwide why would I need stunts to sell music? I don’t need stunts — [especially] when it comes to family — to sell anything, so don’t play yourself.”

As for the reason for the divorce filing, the estranged couple simply grew apart. “Nothing crazy out of this world happened, sometimes people really do grow apart. I been with this man for four years. I have a kid with this man, I have a household with this man…sometimes you’re just tired of the arguments and the build up. You get tired sometimes and before something happens, you leave.”

“I just wanna' be a free bird,” Cardi said after questioning whether people secretly want infidelity to be the reason for the split.

“I am the f**king clout,” she added. “I never needed anything. I never needed no stunts to sell sh*t.Why would I need anything to sell my next album?”

Speaking of the new album, Cardi has been indecisive about choosing her next single because “WAP” did so well. “That means that my second single has to be even better.”

Towards the end of her venting session, Cardi reiterated that she’s focusing on her work, and revealed that she's starting new business for her daughter Kulture.
