Editors’ Notes

The crawling, surreal Houston rap style known as “screw” has gained a nationwide profile, with representatives like Paul Wall taking it way beyond Texas. He claims to be a fan above all, but behind his modesty is a convincing spitter with a stack of tracks that sound laden with doom even as he and his crew are simply bragging about their cash or celebrating their syrup habits. “Sittin’ Sidewayz,” Wall’s breakout single, is a spectral, echoy track that makes partying sound as threatening as an escaped prisoner. Similarly, “Trill” wouldn’t sound out of place in a horror movie; its placement in the sequence helps demonstrate a seeming intent to continually slow the album’s tempo until it has no choice to pick up (a little) speed with the Kanye West-produced “Drive Slow.”

Customer Reviews

Pretty solid

This CD was pretty good to listen to, although its hard to say that he has much to rap about. Yes, he does somewhat talk about his grillz, but thats his choice. i had no problem with it (by the way, it wasn't young buck that started wearing grillz, it was GIP, young buck just popularized it). What i didnt like about this album was the fact that he put this song "Drvie slow" featuring kanye west and GLC, which the same song is put on Kanye West's album, Late Registration. As well, it was pretty pointless for him to put "They don't know" twice featuring two different artists with paul wall. Other than that, pretty good. favourite songs: Sittin' Sideways and Sippin' Tha Barre

So, So

Ok. Paul Wall is a good rapper but he always repeats the same thing. It's annoying after a while. And he thinks he's the best with his "grills" when he was like the last rapper to get them. One of the first rappers to get them was Young Buck and he dosen't brag about them. Anyway it's an ok album, there are some good people on it, I just think he should work on his lyrics. And his appearence, he acts to black, like Eminem is white but he dosen't go like: "I'm a balla and playa". I think he should stick to being a DJ who Screwes and choppes music.

good stuff

paul wall has some really good flow in this album. from the first single sittin sidewayz, to the smooth, calm flow of ridin' dirty and drive slow. Paul Wall makes every word rhyme, even if it sounds a little weird. This album also has lot's of guests apperances, from T.I. and Kanye West, to freeway and Aqualeo. All in all, this is a great album.

MC and DJ Paul Wall (born Paul Slayton) grew up as a hardcore disciple of fellow Houstonian DJ Screw and became so familiar with the pioneering DJ's woozy, slowed-down style of remixing that he had to adjust to hearing hip-hop at any other tempo. Prior to making a nationwide breakout in 2005 with a guest spot on Mike Jones' "Still Tippin'" and his Swishahouse/Atlantic Records debut, The Peoples Champ, Wall was involved with promotional street teams, DJed parties, put together underground mixtapes,...
