Paris Chronicles Effects Of Gun Violence In New Video "Buck, Buck, Pass"

By HipHopDX


Politically astute Bay Area hip-hop artist Paris has a long-lasting career filled with incendiary lyrics and shocking videos. But with over 4 million in sales to his credit, Paris still feels the need to chronicle the escalating gun violence-related loss of life, which he refers to as his community’s holocaust.


In “Buck, Buck, Pass,” the latest video from his forthcoming double album, “Pistol Politics,” Paris chronicles the carnage – but with a twist – detailing the journey of the life of a firearm from its perspective, from its manufactured inception to its illegal use on America’s streets.


While not a call for gun control (Paris is a staunch supporter of self-defense), it is a commentary on gun violence, its often ignored racial implications and its after-effects, providing a spotlight on what he considers to be the real enemy – the corporate and political machinery that benefits from the steady diet of death of mainly young people of color.
