Paul Wall was educated at Jersey Village High School, but didn’t actually graduate from the University of Houston despite studying mass communications for almost three years – his music was more important. He began his career by doing promotions for the independent rap label “Swishahouse” owned by Michael “5000” Watts, “Cash Money”, as well as “No Limit Records”. After convincing Watts to let Paul and his friend Hakim Seriki, known as Chamillionaire, rap on his radio show, the duo became an instant hit with the local audience.They were featured on one of the mixtapes entitled “Choppin Em Up Part 2”, which not only earned them local recognition, but guaranteed a place in the “Swishahouse” label, and began his accumulation of wealth. Eventually, Paul and Chamillionaire formed “The Color Changin’ Click”, a rap group that brought them a lot of business opportunities, the most notable of which was a contract to record an album with Paid in Full Records. The contract resulted in the release of the group’s debut album “Get Ya Mind Correct”, which peaked at #67 on the Billboard charts and sold over 150,000 copies. Wall’s successful beginnings as a rap artist significantly contributed to his estimated net worth. However, soon the group disbanded, and as Paul and Chamillionaire parted ways, Wall returned to “Swishahouse”. He then appeared in Mike Jones’ commercially successful single “Still Tippin” and released his first solo album; “The Peoples Champ” proved to be extremely successful, peaking at #1 on the Billboard 200 and producing three singles. Paul Wall’s second album “Get Money, Stay True” was equally as successful, peaking at #1 on the Billboard Chart Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums, and produced two singles: “Break ‘Em Off” with Lil’ Keke, and “I’m Throwed” with the rapper and producer Jermaine Dupri.
