Get Money Stay True (Explicit)
by Paul Wall
Released: Apr 2007
Label: Asylum / Swishahouse / Atlantic
Paul Wall seems like the H-Town rapper most likely to sell out (he collaborated with Brooke Hogan, after all), but Wall stays true to his H-Town roots on his sophomore major label album. He's still slurring soft syllables over the so-slow-they're-hypnotic H-Town beats; he's still obsessed with wood-grain rims and bulging bank rolls; he still has a knack for turning out charming/corny similes ("I'm fly like Continental," he offers on "Everybody Know Me"). He may flirt with southern pop-hop on "I Throwed," produced by Jermaine Dupri, but most tracks are produced by Houston stalwart Mr. Lee.
