Paris - Acid Reflex - 4 out of 5 stars

By Paul Glanting, URB Magazine

When San Francisco rapper Paris' first effort, The Devil Made Me Do It, dropped, the Bay area hip-hop community was so tiny that militant neo-Panthers lived next-door to Raiders jacket-wearing hustlers. What they had in common was that they all wanted to make music. The result was politically fierce flows tackling party-ready funk keyboards. This dynamic is well reflected on Paris' latest LP, Acid Reflex, from the majestic rally calls on "Don't Stop The Movement" to the sticky-wet percussion on "Winter In America." While Paris' lispy flow and slightly impractical anarchy has remained virtually the same since 1990, his ability to collaborate with testosterone-summoning beats, all the while promoting respect for women and a more accurate portrayal of African Americans in the media is a refreshing duality which could only come out of the Yay.
