Listen to T.I. Castle Walls ft Christina Aguilera + Lyrics

Christina Aguilera – Chorus]
Everyone thinks that I have it a ll
but it’s so empty living behind these castle walls
these castle walls
If I should tumble if I should fall
would anyone hear me screaming behind these castle walls
there’s no-one here at all, behind these castle walls

[T.I. – Verse]
Observing the estate through the gate from the outside looking in
bet you would think I got it made, better look again
i got a butler, got a maid, and a mansion
the belief is that I’m living out a millionaires fantasy
with Phantoms and Ferrai’s in the driveway
but you see the pain and the change of a sane man’s sanity
your vision jaded by the Grammy’s on the mantelpiece
just switch your camera lenses you will see the agony
apparently it’s damaging the man you see before you
on the canvas he may seem aight but all the disadvantages his family
encounters overshadows his extravagance
walk in my nines a while I dare you it’ll scare you
while it surely seem like the Kings life seem glamorous
as seen through the eyes of untrained amateurs
because the camera doesn’t see beyond the walls of the smiles
on the castle until it falls in the pile

Everyone thinks that I have it a ll
but it’s so empty living behind these castle walls
these castle walls
If I should tumble if I should fall
would anyone hear me screaming behind these castle walls
there’s no-one here at all, behind these castle walls

Honestly to me, I think I’d lose every benefit of all that I’ve accomplished
if my kids never with it, shit
me knowing this, why should the verse I’ve laid
be more important to me than the persons I’ve raised
I guess I’m saying that to say that opportunity
but they just don’t equate to all the time they take away
from the kids all the shit I did right is a mistake
if Deyjah end up a stripper and Major out slanging Yay
how could I ever consider myself a great
if Messiah ain’t paid and Nique Nnique ain’t straight
would your favorite song about the whips, money and shit
be relevant if you found out, the money wasn’t real, nope
written courtesy of hiphoprx.com
so me being the Goat shouldn’t mean more to me
than see it to King though
from a bad ass kid to a man with some dough
otherwise I may well have stayed po
so while they stay focused on me beefin with Flip,
or Shawty Low, Gucci or Ludacris
or if I’m fucking with a hoe
did I snitch when I got arrested or will I die over non-sense
internally I’m dealing with this conflict
so excuse me if I don’t get the chance to kiss the hand
or slap me in the face, ay I’m just the man
if they saying I ain’t the best at making hit records
it’s cause this my life these ain’t just rapping
you didn’t think it all went that deep, did ya dawg
see you can’t see the castle for the walls til it fall
betcha ain’t think it went that deep, did ya dawg
cause see you can’t see the castle for the walls til it falls

Everyone thinks that I have it a ll
but it’s so empty living behind these castle walls
these castle walls
If I should tumble if I should fall
would anyone hear me screaming behind these castle walls
there’s no-one here at all, behind these castle walls

Nobody knows I’m all alone
living in this castle made of stone
they say that money is freedom but I feel trapped inside it all
and while I sit so high up on a throne
I wonder how I can feel this low
On top of the World it’s beautiful
but there’s not place to fall

For the record ay, I give a damn if I never said shit again
my career was meant for me to come and tell this
honest interpretation of how affected I’m faced with
matters most rappers used to keep locked away in the basement
every day that I walk away I ain’t saying that I’m amazing
downplaying the way I kept fellas from catching cases
castle walls lyrics written courtesy of hiphoprx.com
won’t take into consideration how much it mean what I’m saying
and when I say what I mean even when I’m surrounded by the fakers
from one of the greatest centers, blessed with most of God’s graces
who made his way amongst the greatest from the grimiest places
so next time you rating royalty
and more is being given to recordings than the level of your loyalty
obvious you’ve been ignoring me
who else ya seen make through the storm, unharmed this charming
while all the critics was lookin for Prince charming
disregarded the King of The South but raised doubt
even though he made a castle out what used to be a house
he did shit that all favorites rappers only rap about
but most of yall don’t see the castle for the walls
and the smiles til it falls in the piles so wow

Everyone thinks that I have it a ll
but it’s so empty living behind these castle walls
these castle walls
If I should tumble if I should fall
would anyone hear me screaming behind these castle walls
there’s no-one here at all, behind these castle walls

Caught on Tape: Rapper Paul Wall Beats Fan With Mic On Stage With Slim Thug


Seems like rapper Paul Wall was in a seriously bad mood during a car show concert in Texas when a concert-goer from the crowd allegedly flipped him off with the finger. What did Paul Wall do after the fan allegedly gave him the finger — he allegedly beat the fan with his microphone and the whole incident was caught on tape.

Paul Wall can be seen in the video, obtained by TMZ, performing on stage with rapper Slim Thug when Paul Wall can be seen leaning over apparently having some words with a concert-goer who at some point gave the rapper the finger, and that’s when the mic starting flying.

Paul Wall can be seen swinging the microphone again and again but from the angle of the camera, there’s little to see besides Paul Wall swinging.

The incident apparently happened on Sunday night at the Low Low Car Show in San Antonio, Texas.

As of yet, there have been no reports of charges filed and the concert-goer was allegedly removed from the show.
