After his experience with Swishahouse and Chamillionaire, Wall began to work towards building his solo career, starting with his first solo album “Chick Magnet.” It was only in 2005 when Wall signed with Atlantic Records and released his debut “The People’s Champ” that the rapper rose to fame. The song topped the Billboard Hot 200, and the following year, his album “Get Money, Stay True” took the No. 1 spot in many charts.
