Paul Wall is alive and well, according to a source close to the the Houston rapper.

A hip-hop site sent an e-mail alert earlier today stating the Swisha House artist was shot to death in a night club incident. The message also said two teens were being held in custody as a result.

A source, however, confirmed to XXLmag.com that Paul wall is "just fine."

Paul Wall also responded to an e-mail message stating he was ok.

Shortly after, the site backtracked and reported that an associate close to Paul Wall had been murdered, not the rapper himself. At press time it remains unclear if in fact an associate close to the Houston artist had been killed. Representatives at Paul Wall's recording home, Atlantic Records, have not issued a statement.---Anthony Thomas, with additional reporting by Jayson Rodriguez
