It's difficult for me to say rapper Paul Wall’s name without immediately following up with "What you know 'bout me? I'm on that five-nine Southlea. Baby, holla at me." While the preceding phrases—ripped from “I Got The Internet Goin’ Nutz”—may lack meaning for the uninitiated, those well-versed in Texas slang know that Wall just dropped the vicinity of his ’hood, the 5900 block of Southlea Street in Houston. If you’re hip to the work of Swishahouse ambassador Wall, it needs no introduction; if you’re not familiar, queue up “Sittin’ Sidewayz,” “Break Em Off” or “I’m on Patron.” Hang with “the people’s champ” at Amped Performance Center (415 Central NW) on Friday, May 9. This all-ages gig cranks up at 8pm, and tickets range from $20 to $40. And please, let’s not allow that Texas/New Mexico rivalry mindset to continue into the next generation; both states have their selling points and detractions, no?
