Paul Wall – “I’m On Patron” Video

By | 5 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/07/review-of-paul-wall-heart-of-a-champion"> Paul Wall is from Texas but he's subliminally saying syrup is for losers. He needs tequilla in heavy doses to get his party started. I had no idea this clip even existed until yesterday but there's plenty of comedic value to keep its Youtube hits steadily rising. Heart of a Champion? More like heart of a clown. <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/paul-wall">Paul Weezy</a> is a bona fide fool.

Kanye West, The Social Butterfly

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/07/kanye-west-returns-via-facebook-and-twitter"> There was a time when Kanye was highly active online. Then he hit a rough patch, got frustrated, lashed out and quit because he was too "busy" and "creative" to update the mortals on his thoughts and actions. Now, he's returned to the scene to promote his new album, which apparently <a href="http://twitter.com/kanyewest/status/19758633594">isn't titled</a> Good Ass Job anymore, and he's been making an unlikely round of press by stopping first <a href="http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1644579/20100728/west_kanye.jhtml">@ Facebook headquarters</a> and then hitting <a href="http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1644637/20100728/west_kanye.jhtml">Twitter's HQ</a> just to perform new material for the respective staffs.
