Paris (rapper)

Paris is a hip hop artist from Chicago known for his militantly confrontational rapping, and especially the controversial track "Bush Killa". After earning a degree in economics from University of California-Davis[?], Paris founded Scarface Records[?] but released his first single with Tommy Boy Records[?]. The Devil Made Me Do It[?] was his critically acclaimed debut LP; the title track was banned by MTV.

Paris' 1992 (see 1992 in music) follow-up, Sleeping With the Enemy[?], was not released due to the anti-George H. W. Bush track "Bush Killa". Unable to find a distributor, Paris released it on Scarface and the album was a critical success though sales were slim. Guerilla Funk[?] (1994, 1994 in music) was similarly unpopular, as was the follow-up, Unleashed[?], which drew cries of selling out with its G funk sound and gangsta rap lyrics. Paris then retired and has become a stockbroker.
