Wednesday, Feb 3, 2010 10:15AM
Former rap rivals Paul Wall and Chamillionaire have placed their past beef to the side and decided to reunite for an upcoming tour beginning next month.
Breaking the news on Twitter, Chamillionaire said the tour was a go.
"It's official @chamillionaire & @paulwallbaby are going on tour together. ITS GOIN ALL THE WAY DOWN," he wrote referring to hitting the road alongside fellow Texan Paul Wall. "Just finished signing the first 1,000 MAJOR PAIN cds. Me and my bright ideas. I'm guessing that 75% of my followers have Susan Boyle & Mariah Carey albums considering how many albums they are selling." (Chamillionaire's Twitter)
Paul also confirmed the road trip through his Twitter page.
"RT @chamillionaire Its official @chamillionaire & @paulwallbaby are going on tour together @MartyJames what it do let's do another one! RT @rappublicist: @chamillionaire& @paulwallbaby still booking tour dates!!!!!!!!!!! March is booked. Holla for April dates!!!!!!!!!!!!!" (Paul Wall's Twitter)
Back in 2007, Paul Wall spoke on mending his issues with the rapper.
"I was so proud of that boy [Chamillionaire] that he won the Grammy, I ran up and gave him a big ol' hug, man," he told SOHH. When asked if he'd be willing to work with Chamillionaire, his one-time collaborator, he replied: "I'm down. I just want to get these record labels on board that believe in the project. I'm sure a lot of labels would love to do it because of the potential of the hype, but if we get a record label that believes in it, I'm not opposed to it." (SOHH)
In the past, Wall said a collaboration album with Cham was difficult due to their past rap issues.
"I want to do another album with him. But only if we find a label that believes in us as a [duo], then cool. But if they just see the gimmick of, 'Oh, they used to have beef, they used to have problems, let's get them together now to do an album,' it's not really the same thing. I want it to be real. If someone believes in the music, then it's all good." (HHDX)
No further details have been revealed as of now.
