Video: Paul Wall – ‘Swangin In The Rain’

 Get your drink poured up and roll up the green and get ready to go ‘swangin’. Paul Wall drops a dope new track that will make your subwoofers rumble. ‘Swangin in the Rain’ is one of the latest joints recently released from the Texas native.  Known for his infamous ‘gangsta grills’, as well as, chopped and screwed inspired beats, Paul Wall is back on the scene once again.

Without a doubt, he is and always will be a hometown favorite, but it will be interesting to see if the H-town rapper will gain mainstream’s attention again.

Racism Clouds Rick Perry’s Bid For Presidency

As everyone prepares for the next United States Presidential election, tensions are heating up in Texas and it is geared by rumors of racism.

For years, up until the early 90’s, it is said that the sign read ‘Niggerhead’. The Texas governor contends that the sign was changed when his father signed the lease in 1983 but the story doesn’t end there! To get the full story, go to Eurweb.com.
