Paul Wall to Perform for Troops in Persian Gulf
Houston rapper Paul Wall has signed with the USO and actor/comedian Jamie Kennedy to travel to the Persian Gulf region and entertain U.S. troops. "Jamie Kennedy's Hip-Hop Comedy Tour" will include Kennedy, Wall, comedian Bill Dawes, Stu Stone, DJ Joey Nicks and breakdancer Casper. Kennedy, a part time rapper himself, is perhaps best known for his role in the film Malibu's Most Wanted and his MTV show The Jamie Kennedy Experience. A date for the tour has not yet been announced. The USO (United Service Organizations) is a non-profit organization that provides morale, welfare and recreational services to U.S. military personnel and their families. Other notable performers who have traveled abroad or otherwise pitched in to entertain and meet with troops include 50 Cent, Master P and Ludacris. In related news, Wall will also be joining the 2007 Honda Civic Tour with rock band Fall Out Boy. His sophomore solo LP, Get Money, Stay True is due out on April 3.
