Paul Wall was born in Houston, Texas, United States, on March 11,1981. As of 2022, the American rapper is 41 years old.
Wall grew up in Georgetown, a city in central Texas. He had a very tough childhood because his parents separated when he was little, leaving his mom to single-handedly raise him.
During one of the episodes of the FAQ podcast, the rapper revealed that his father was almost not part of his life.
“He left us when I was about 5 or 6 years old, and I never knew what happened, other than my mom would always have me and my sister paranoid that we were ’bout to get kidnapped,” Wall recalled.
On the show, Wall further revealed that his father was a serial child molester. “Later on in life, I asked my mom one day, like, ‘Whatever happened? Whatever happened to him?’ That’s when I found out horrible things. Man, I can’t believe this stuff, my biological father, he was a child molester. A serial child molester.”
“He ended up kidnapping a girl— he started a ‘relationship’ with her when she was 12 or 13 years old,” Wall claimed. “Then, when she became 14 or 15, he ‘married’ her and they went to Canada, and that’s the last time I saw him,” the American rapper added.
Paul Wall attended Jersey Village High School in Texas, United States. His love for music started at an early age, during his high school days.
He was introduced to rap in high school by his rapper friend Mike Jones, who also attended the same high school as Wall. After high school, the talented rapper got accepted into the University of Houston, where he studied mass communication.
Even while in university, he did not give up on rapping. Unfortunately, he only stayed in college for three years and dropped out to pursue his musical career.
Paul Wall is married to Crystal Wall, a fitness coach, and CEO of Mixfitz studios, a fitness studio in Houston. The two love birds met in college.
Although they did not attend the same college, they attended colleges adjacent to each other. They casually saw each other from time to time.
The American rapper fell in love with his heartthrob years later when he saw Crystal at a club. At that time, Crystal was in a singing group and came to the club with her singing group to sell their CD.
Wall was the only one among his friends to buy their CDs which turned out scratched. This led to another meeting, and from there, they started dating.
The two love birds tied the knot on October 23, 2005, at Vargo’s restaurant in Houston, Texas, and are still together to date. The couple has a son named William Patrick Slayton, and a daughter, Noelle Slayton.
