Paul Wall was once a big name when it came to southern hip hop but with the grill era dead and buried is there much hope for him? Paul Wall’s Heart of a Champion debuted on the charts this week at No. 58. After seven days of availability, the rapper’s new album has sold 7,600 units. This would be great if he were signed to an indie but he is still actually signed to Warner Music Group/Asylum so this was def not a good look.

Paul Wall spoke on his low album sales and explained why it didn’t matter, “I’m blessed to have another album come out. I’m blessed to be able to do what I love to do: make music,” he said in an interview. “We find ways to make up for the lack of album sales, but we don’t really do it for the album sales. I want my fanbase to be happy with music I make. In the industry these days, people want hits more than they want good music. As long as you got one good radio hit you can sell an album, but you got on radio hit and the rest be a wack album. I’d rather have a good solid album, all the way through. I think that’s where I made a name for myself — making good music. Even though I haven’t really had too many big smash hits, I’ve been having good music. Every album gots good quality music … good solid albums.

Although I was a never a big Paul Wall fan, the industry is suffering from the digital era but at the end of the day its still a business for the majors and outcomes like this are never good.
