Paul Wall & Termanology announce new collab project ‘Start, Finish, Repeat’ out 10/13, share new video single “Talk About It”
Paul Wall & Termanology have officially revealed that their upcoming album, “Start, Finish, Repeat,” is set to launch on October 13th. Additionally, they’ve shared a brand-new music video for their single titled “Talk About It.” The duo, both heavyweight figures in the realm of Hip-Hop, previously collaborated on the highly acclaimed album “Start 2 Finish” last year. This project skillfully combined Paul Wall’s distinctive Houston flair and magnetic lyricism with Termanology’s intricately woven rhyme patterns. The album paid homage to their respective roots in two iconic Hip-Hop cities: Houston and NYC.
Their initial connection was rooted in their shared passion for Hip-Hop and its culture. Building upon this foundation, Paul Wall & Termanology have reunited for a follow-up venture that boasts production from notable names like Statik Selektah and Large Professor, along with contributions from legendary Hip-Hop icons such as Bun B, AZ, and Sheek Louch.
Paul Wall, renowned as “The People’s Champ,” maintains his legacy over a career spanning two decades. Despite his legendary status, he remains a humble student of the craft, consistently tapping into the underground scene. His encounter with Termanology came about through the legendary Statik Selektah, a mutual friend. Their collaboration on “Start 2 Finish” resulted in an authentic body of work. As they gear up for “Start, Finish, Repeat,” their intention is to continue pushing their artistic boundaries. Both artists venture outside their comfort zones to complement each other seamlessly.
“Start, Finish, Repeat” emerges as an organic convergence of Hip-Hop’s grassroots and the upper echelons of rap royalty. This fusion is characterized by commanding flows, intricate lyricism, and velvety beats provided by luminaries like Statik Selektah, Diamond D, and Buckwild. Paul Wall & Termanology once again artfully blend the essence of their respective Hip-Hop hometowns, culminating in a harmonious yet potent synthesis of two legendary careers and worlds. With Paul Wall’s recent resurgence from his viral verse on “Johnny Dang,” alongside Termanology’s continued impact as a vital underground rapper, their collective chemistry and storied contributions to Hip-Hop take center stage in “Talk About It” and the eagerly anticipated “Start, Finish, Repeat,” set to release on 10/13.
