Paul Wall puts his album "The People's Champ" aside to help Hurricane survivors

Rapper is a social aware. He's willingly put aside his upcoming Tuesday release of his major label debut, "The People's Champ," to help Hurricane Katrina survivors.

As an attempt to show his concern, Wall has called in to radio stations around the country soliciting donations for the cause, performing at benefit shows and rallying his friends in the fashion industry to give clothes to the people who have been left with nothing.

"I have a foundation in Houston called Hope for Houston. We've been petitioning a lot of clothing lines I deal with personally. Like Travis Barker got a clothing line called Famous Stars & Straps, and he donated to my foundation 5,000 pieces of clothes - shirts, jeans, whatever. Ecko said they was going to clear out the entire warehouse and Algiers said they was going to send thousands of shirts," the rapper said.
