Tonight, the internet is indeed going nuts, as Paul Wall was back in the spotlight, for a night. The Houston Texans got the nod for tonight’s edition of Thursday Night Football. Facing off with the Indianapolis Colts, NBC tapped Paul Wall to represent for the team.
Before this current era of Houston domination, the city’s hip hop scene took off, in 2005. The era was led by Mike Jones, but he rose with both Slim Thug and Paul Wall. Also in the mix was Chamillionaire, who became the best-known of the unit.
Ultimately, all of them were relatively forgotten by 2007, only dominating on the mixtape level, from which they emerged. But, Paul Wall is back for the Texans, tonight. He is Houston’s hometown boy, and his recollection of Texans’ history has him trending on Twitter, as Cowboys fans are insulted by the comments about the Texans beating them, but fans are happy to see Paul Wall, tonight.
