Paris hails from San Francisco and was catapulted onto the national hip-hop scene with his hit single and album The Devil Made Me Do It on his Scarface Records imprint (later named Guerrilla Funk Recordings), initially distributed by Tommy Boy. He chose early on for his music to reflect sociopolitical themes relevant to the betterment of his community, and his uncompromising stance on political issues and biting social commentary have become his trademark, endearing him to legions of supporters who rightly feel messages of positivity are underrepresented in hip-hop.
His Guerrilla Funk imprint has released numerous projects, including Paris-written and produced material and contributions by Public Enemy, George Clinton, E-40, The Coup, dead prez, T-K.A.S.H., Kam, The Conscious Daughters, Spice 1, MC Ren, WC, and Immortal Technique, among others. Paris' original material has been featured in various Hollywood movies, TV shows, video games, and streaming networks, and his writings have recently appeared in Vice Media, The Washington Post, and Medium.
Additional Guerrilla Funk releases contain contributions from DJ True Justice, C-Funk, Mystic, The STOP Movement (Mobb Deep, Tray Deee, Soopafly, KRS-One, Defari, Daz, J-Ro, RBX, Bad Azz, WC, Dilated Peoples, Mac Minister, The Alchemist, Mack 10, Evidence, Defari, Everlast, and B-Real), XienHow, Planet Asia, Rasco, The Grouch, Equipto, Sunspot Jonz, Zumbi (Zion-I), J-Ro (Tha Alkaholiks) and more.
