Hip Hop Isn't Dead... It Lives In The HOOD

PPaul aka Paris D. Star was born in Little Rock, AR by way of Flint, MI. His musical influences range from: Prince, Michael Jackson, Gerald Levert, Eminem, Beyonce, Foxy Brown, Lil Wayne, Jay Z, DMX, Fabolous, Jeezy, TI, Twista, Tupac, Top Authority, Dayton Family, and Lauren Hill. He developed his sound, style, and persona from the west coast, mid west and south in cities such as LA, Flint, Minneapolis, Chicago, Little Rock, and Memphis. Born to entertain, as far back as PPaul can remember he’s always enjoyed and craved the idea of being an entertainer. Although he raps, the fashion forward lyricist does not like to type cast himself “as a rapper,” but instead a multifaceted writer. He considers himself if anything “a rapper by default.” Star writes poems, stories, novels, articles, comic books, and screen plays. When asked to define himself the up and coming entertainer replied “I can’t be defined because I believe in the never ending cycle of change. I embrace the idea of change because it allows me to grow and never be placed in a solitary lane or moment.”

Star believes his openness and desire to be an artist for the people allows him to produce affective music that will last and reach the masses. He feels he brings a sense of timeless youth and creativity with a raw perspective of the streets and life as a whole. Describing oneself as a window for listeners to look into or look out from offers connections to his experiences of pain, struggle, triumphs, happiness, and wisdom. Offering creativity humor, trends, fashion, and perspective on life he’s endeavored in many lanes and has worn many hats. Being a voice for all those who feel they have yet to be defined or gone unnoticed; perhaps one might say a speaker for the unheard and the microphone for a whisper. Referring to his style as “a creation in action,” Star is an exceptional writer and showman and feels he has what it takes to be highly successful in this industry. Legend material has yet to be determined but not eliminated from thought or possibilities. PPaul seeks to be mentioned and appreciated in the same breath as those considered to be legends in the industry. While his place is yet to be determined he is tunnel vision focused when it comes to establishing himself in the industry. “The Earth is my Turf and I don’t claim no streets!” referring to his jet setting background of living in different cities and states and his desire to move about the entire world.

The self proclaimed “Creative” boast a body of work for an independent artist: He has been seen on stages & venues throughout the south and Midwest. He has opened up for artist such as Yo Gotti, 2 Chainz, Rocko, Trina, Too Short, VIC, Pleasure P, and Young Joc, while releasing 9 solo projects including: Gawds Own Earth I (GOE) 2006, Gawds Own Earth II (GOE) 2007, Fly Boi Street Swag I 2009, Fly Boi Street Swag 2010, 80s Baby I: Out Of This World 2012, 80's Baby II: Encore 2013, All Biz No BS I 2015, PaulyDos 2017, All Biz No BS DOS 2019. P Star writes, directs, and shoots his own videos; is the owner operator of BBE publishing and entertainment company.
