CHilla’s Hiphop Spotlight - Artist of the Day: PARIS
One of the most interesting figures to come out of not only my hometown San Francisco, but in Hiphop. People have described him in the past as militant, political, dark, edgy, violent, controversial, etc. I describe him as brilliant.
Paris was a guy that really had something to say, and regardless of overwhelming attempts at censorship, he found a way. One could argue that his controversial topics hindered his elevation to mainstream notoriety, but it was his unapologetic realism and dedication not to sacrifice the truth that gained him a mass amount of respect in the culture. This is one of the most controversial songs he ever put out that ended up causing the Emcee multiple problems with the government, yet still speaks of his passionate beliefs that was shared among many.
