Power 106 Radio Personality Big Boy and DJ E-man Join the Southern-Inspired Artist
ARLINGTON, VA. (August 10, 2010)– Grammy nominated rapper Paul Wall recently set out to visit troops serving in the Persian Gulf on his fourth USO/Armed Forces Entertainment tour. Accompanying “The People’s Champ” in boosting troop morale are Power 106 radio personality Big Boy and DJ E-man. Scheduled to perform seven shows at three bases, the trio is busy signing autographs and spending one-on-one time with troops.
The eight-day trip delivered a much-needed break to thousands of troops.
Since February 2007, Wall has participated in three USO tours and lifted the spirits of more than 10,400 service men and women stationed in Kuwait, Iraq and Afghanistan.
In September 2008, Big Boy and DJ E-man participated in their first USO tour. The duo traveled to Kuwait and Iraq with Latin rapper Baby Bash, and performed for more than 5,000 troops.
Wall’s fourth studio album “Heart of a Champion” was released on July 13, 2010 and features collaborations with USO tour veteran Chamillionaire and a host of other diverse artists, including Wall’s band, Expensive Taste, featuring Travis Barker and Skinhead Rob.
Host of one of the top-rated morning shows in L.A., Big Boy is a four-time winner of the Radio Music Awards “Personality of the Year” and has made on-screen appearances in hit movies, such as “The Longest Yard” and “Charlie’s Angels 2.”
Named Billboard Magazine “Music Director of the Year,” DJ E-man is an accomplished disk jockey and has worked with industry greats such as Mariah Carey, The Game and Jay Sean.
