During a conversation on Houston’s 97.9 The Box radio show, Paul Wall explained that he doesn’t shower daily nor does he wear deodorant, but he did offer some details as to why.
He said: “We got an inside joke…We always joke about how I’m on the road and they’ll be like, ‘Man, you need to take a shower.’ Nah, it ain’t Saturday. It ain’t Sunday. I take a shower once a month. Nah, it ain’t that bad. You know, baby ain’t gonna handle that. My wife is not gon’ handle that. She’s not gon’ have me walking about the house, stankin’.”
When asked to specify how often he showers, Paul Wall told the radio show co-hosts “every few days,” emphasizing that it’s likely more than every two days.
“I ain’t gon’ lie, I don’t wear deodorant though,” Paul continued. “On mommas. I used to, but when I stopped…It’s something you gotta get out your system. But when I stopped wearing deodorant, I stopped getting as funky when I sweat. I don’t know if it’s just a hormone thing.”
The veteran rapper also noted that he’s the only one in his household who goes the natural hygiene route as his kids and wife both use deodorant.
“I will say this, though,” he said. “If I meet somebody and I’m like, ‘Hey, how you doing?’ And you give somebody a hug, or a half-hug, and they stank and it rubs off on me, that is contagious ’cause I’ll be smelling like roses and then it’s like, ‘Wait a minute.’ I’ll change shirts and I’m still funky.”
