Paul Wall Enlists Z-Ro, Slim Thug and More for “Swangin’ in the Rain (Remix)”
Paul Wall brought out the big guns for his new song. The Houston rapper brings in some of his hometown's top talent for a remix of "Swangin' in the Rain." Z-Ro, Slim Thug, Chamillionaire, Lil Keke and J-Dawg all join Paul Wall for the new version of the track.
If you love Houston hip-hop, you can't ask for a much better lineup. The Scoop Deville produced record, which samples The Dramatics' classic "In the Rain," is sure to have you pouring up at home or swangin' in your ride.
The remix of "Swangin' in the Rain" is a real treat for Houston rap aficionados when you look at the rappers Paul Wall recruited. Chamillionaire makes a welcomed return to the music after embarking on a new career in the business world. Last year, the "Ridin" rapper joined venture capital firm Upfront Ventures as an entrepreneur in residence. Since then, fans haven't heard much on the music front from Chamillionaire. But it seems that his old partner in rhyme was able to get him back into the studio.
The song is a great representation of H-Town's glory days with Screwed Up Click representatives like Z-Ro and Lil Keke involved alongside the old Swishahouse crew of Paul Wall, Cham and Slim Thug. But the most exciting guest might be J-Dawg, one of the true hidden gems of the Houston scene. As he routinely does, J-Dawg delivers a show stealing verse on the remix.
The original version of "Swangin' in the Rain" appears on Paul Wall's album Slab God, which is in stores now.
