CD Reviews

Pure Hip Hop
Trevor G. Thompson | Portland, OR | 12/30/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album is real. Modern day radio rap doesn't talk about problems in this world, they talk about girls and money. This album talks about the real stuff like racism, and oppresion. This album is one of the top hip hop albums ever in my book, a must own for any hip hop fan."
One of the most solid rap albums of its time
Aaron Loutsch | San Francisco, CA | 11/30/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Paris has got talent. Mad Mike has got talent. On this album it all shows. The tracks are growling, driving beats with smooth lyrics from someone who seems to genuinely believe what he is saying. Unfortunately, his message is a strong, nationalist, panther inspired one, and seems to have done a good job alienating much of the industry - making this album virtually unknown in spite of its merits. It took me a few times through to realize just how good this album was, seeing how as a white male I am the target (or possibly the cause) of a lot of the angst that went into it.Whatever you think of his message, Paris is a talented lyricist with a good sense for creating enthralling tracks, and this album is an exceptionally good showcase for him."
Strong. Political. Revolutionary.

"Political to the core, this album remains one of the most underappreciated rap albums of all time. Paris reminds us that rap is not all about the bling bling, the Bentleys, the platinum fronts, nor the Cristal; that rap, contrary to popular belief, is a valuable and legitimate means of self-expression, criticism, and political commentary.Enough can't be said about Mad Mike's scratching skills and beats, either. They're powerful; almost militant. A perfect match for Paris' intelligent lyrics.I can't praise this album enough. I bought my first copy on cassette, and although the origins of that well-worn tape are now unknown, I must get it on CD, because it is an essential part of any rap and hip-hop aficionado's collection.After more than a decade after its initial release, the album's tracks still resonate with a sense of urgency, passion, and advocacy for equality."
