2019 is dead. Kool Keith & Psycho Les killed it. What more could you expect when one of Hip-Hop’s founding fathers, Kool Keith, and the first Latino member of the Native Tongues, Psycho Les of The Beatnuts, join forces. Keith shoots past space & time, sex style and horrorcore. Forget who’s woke and who’s sleep, because there are no boundaries when all you know is raw. Meanwhile, Pyscho Les lays nasty, timeless production for Keith and crew (Paul Wall, Jeru the Damaja, B-Real) to float over. The new album, KEITH, will be released on 7-12-19 on Mello Music Group.
Before his new album Keith arrives tonight at midnight, Kool Keith joins forces with Paul Wall for a new single, “Foot Locka,” saluting (“girls with striped shirts and black pants”) shoe care specialists as only they can. The not to be missed “Foot Locka” video coming soon!
Kool Keith’s KEITH will be released at midnight tonight via Mello Music Group.

Following the release of his latest album, The Houston Oiler [EMPIRE], GRAMMY® Award-winning rapper, Paul Wall, keeps the momentum going with his new video for the single, “Why Is That.” The video, directed by Breadwinner Films, follows Paul around his hometown of Houston questioning the intentions of his opposition while surrounded by a combination of wild visual effects, eye-catching animation, gold grillz and more. The video premiered exclusively on Revolt TV’s The Gate last night. In addition, Paul recently opened the world’s largest jewelry store, Johnny Dang & Co., showcasing a large variety of custom grillz in Houston alongside his business partner, TV Johnny.
Today, 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.

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.

On Tuesday, July 20 – the same day he and 21 other Houston rappers marched into a black-owned Houston bank to “redistribute the pain” by opening new accounts – Geto Boys‘ most brazen trumpeter, Willie D, launched his own podcast, and it’s just as provocative and unapologetic as you might think it is. The show entitled Willie D Live, is available each Tuesday at 1:00 pm Central Time, and features in its first episode, a no holds barred interview with white rapper Paul Wall, who had a lot to say about police misconduct, and white people who live in denial about racism:
“People like to come up with excuses for why certain people got killed. ‘If they did this, they wouldn’t have died. If they wouldn’t have did that, they wouldn’t have gotten killed.’ But at the end of the day, nobody should be killed, especially when you see the police shooting somebody three times in the face, 10 times in the face. At the same time, it could be a white person holding a gun or pointing a gun at the police, and he wouldn’t have gotten shot. They’ll talk him down. They’ll shoot him with a taser or a pellet. They always blame the victim. It’s the victim’s fault they got killed. No it’s not,” says Paul.
Later, when Willie D shared his thoughts on why he thinks O.J. Simpson is guilty of murdering his wife, Nicole Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman, Paul said that he was glad O.J. Simpson “got off.” The “Sitting Sidewayz” artist also shared his experience meeting with members of Congress at Capitol Hill for music law reform, and discussed the recent murder of his friend on July 4th.
Listeners can subscribe for free to hear Willie D Live on any podcast hosting platform, including Google Play and i-Tunes. Additionally, video segments of each show will be available on the Willie D Live YouTube channel and SoundCloud.
