Studying mass communication in University of Houston, Paul Wall chose to have a career in music rather than becoming a public relation staff. Partnering with Chamillionaire, he approached the founder of Houston-based recording company Swishahouse, Michael Watts, and convinced Watts to allow them rapping on Watts' radio show and putting their songs in one of Swishahouse' mixtapes.

Luckily for them, Watts trusted Wall and Chamillionaire and listed them in a mixtape called "Choppin Em Up Part 2" in mid 1999. Their tracks became popular on the streets, and this achievement made them appearing regularly in Houston's mixtapes, included in several Watts' project, and then made them recruited as the permanent members of Swishahouse.
