Houston rapper Paul Wall took to social media very angry Tuesday night.
According to the rapper’s post on Instagram his annual school supply giveaway this Sunday has been blocked by red tape from the city of Houston.
Wall says specifically Mayor Annise Parker’s office said the event would be disruptive to the residents in some new condos in the Midtown area.
I’m reaching out to the Mayor’s office for a response.
Wall says in the past they’ve always had permits but now he’s being required to get a special events permit with anywhere from $1 to $2 million in insurance.
Wall told me by text he’s still moving forward with his drive and the city will just have to shut him down.
Stay tuned for the response from the City of Houston!
Darian Ward with the Mayor’s office says she is checking into the matter and won’t have a response until Wednesday. However, Ward says they give out hundreds of permits a year. Stay tuned!
