Southern rapper Killer Mike recently spoke on helping reunite Texas duo Chamillionaire and Paul Wall for their current road tour.
According to “Mike Bigga,” his close ties to both rappers allowed him the opportunity to reach out and suggest the duo share a concert stage again.
“I really consider Paul and I really consider Chamillionanire friends,” Mike told Rap Radar‘s Elliot Wilson. “Like, I landed in Texas and got to know them from the time they were still together and doing work and doing some shows but I didn’t get to see them…I grew in friendship with both of them — the crazy part was I never got to see them perform together, I never got to see it together. I would hound Chamillionaire, I would hound them. I was like, ‘Y’all got to do it, y’all boys got to do it.’ Both of them are beautiful brothers man — as a fan, to all the fans, when we complain, they listen!” (Rap Radar)
Cham broke the news of their reunion via Twitter last month.
“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 later confirmed the road trip through his own 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, Wall talked about mending his issues with Cham.
“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)
