GRAMMY® Award-winning platinum-certified Houston legend Paul Wall returns with his ninth full-length album, The Houston Oiler [EMPIRE], in stores everywhere and at all digital retailers and streaming partners today. It’s available for purchase HERE.
The Houston Oiler uncorks 16 undeniable new anthems from the self-proclaimed “Po Up Poet,” swerving between screwed-up Southern fried bangers and contemplative ruminations on not only his hometown, but about the world at large. Among those tracks, the album boasts an all-star remix of his hit single “Swanging in the Rain” featuring Slim Thug, Z-Ro, Chamillionaire, Lil Keke, and J-Dawg. Flaunting his inimitable wordplay and savvy bars, the original stands out as a fan favorite, ratcheting up 1.8 million YouTube views and earning acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork who called it, “Essentially the grown-up, chilled out reprisal to ‘Sittin Sidewayz’ a decade later. Even better than a comeback: when you never really left to begin with.”
Elsewhere on The Houston Oiler, he teams with another regional icon Z-Ro for the sizzling and striking “Thangz Are Crazy,” while “Save Me From Myself” [featuring J-Dawg] sees Wall open up over gospel-style harmonies and cinematic production. “Caught Ya Lookin” delivers an unforgettable chant, and the bounce on “Han Solo on 4’s” is meant to be turnt-up, and at cruising speed.
In conjunction with the album release, Wall opens the doors of Johnny Dang & Co. alongside his business partner TV Johnny. Revolutionizing the jewelry industry, Johnny Dang & Co. is the world’s largest jewelry store to showcase custom grillz. The flagship Houston location covers 14,000 sq. ft. across two floors and offers all custom-made pieces crafted in-house. If you’re in H-Town this weekend you’ll want to stop by the grand opening and mingle with a handful of notable celebrities, who they consider friends, such as Travis Scott, Chief Keef, Danny Garcia and more. The flagship store is located at 6224 Richmond Ave in Houston. Watch the All-Star promo video featuring Rick Ross, Puffy, Travis Scott and more HERE
Paul Wall isn’t just a hometown Houston hero; he’s also one of the south’s most respected and prolific voices. After grinding locally for years, his second full-length album, The Peoples Champ, captured #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and achieved RIAA platinum status. He joined Kanye West and GLC for the classic “Drive Slow,” a centerpiece of West’s Late Registration, which achieved the GRAMMY® Award for “Best Rap Album.” In between dropping a string of acclaimed albums and Gold singles like “Girl” and “Sittin’ Sidewayz,” Wall has guested on Ellen, Howard Stern, Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!, The Wendy Williams Show, and The Late Late Show in addition to appearing in movies such as Furnace and Hope They Serve Beer In Hell. Houston even gave him his own day August 16.

Mickey Factz, veteran emcee, former XXL cover freshman is set to release his debut album, The Achievement circa ’82,with Grammy award winning producer Nottz handling all of the production for the ten-track project, which also includes guest appearances from Blu, Phonte, Styles P, Mack Wilds, Smoke DZA & Curren$y and will be released on 10-28-2016.
The first taste of this collaborative album was the third installment of the 414 trilogy entitled “414 Words” and today Mickey returns with “Treat You Right” featuring Phonte which was exclusively premiered by XXL.
After years in the making, Mickey Factz & Phonte finally connect over Nottz production. Declaring their own personal convictions to their respective partners, the combination came together by the assistance of the internet. “I was going through beats on Nottz's IG and came across the “Treat You Right” track” Mickey stated to XXL. "In the comment section, a fan said I can hear Phonte singing and rapping on this song. I took it upon myself to make it happen."
Phonte also added his insight to XXL "Mickey is a cat that I've always had a lot of respect for and is a dope MC. Wordplay and flow are two big factors for me when judging MC's and he's always delivered for me on both counts. His management sent me the record and I was already down, but once I saw it was a Nottz beat it was a no brainer. Nottz is family and we go back some years. I wanted to give him something really soulful, so I brought in my girl Tamisha Waden who sings with me in The Foreign Exchange to help fill out the background vocals and make it really thick. We got a jam."
Mickey Factz and Nottz project The Achievement: circa '82 will be released October 28, 2016 via SoulSpazm//W.A.R. Media.
