Paris Gives Back

by Young Che on October 15, 2008

San Francisco, CA – Forget spinners and diamonds, Bay Area rapper/activist Paris is putting his own spin on the “golden ticket” contest: a college education.
Three randomly placed tickets will be slipped into copies of ParisOctober 28th album, Acid Reflex, on his own Guerrilla Funk Recordings and Filmworks, LLC, distributed by Fontana/Universal. With three guaranteed winners, each prize is a ten-thousand dollar award redeemable as a scholarship towards any kind of post-high school education or towards housing expenses.

“We’re living in the hardest economic times in recent memory, and this is a perfect way for me to try to ease the pain for my supporters,” says Paris. “I realize that money is tight for many people and that music is becoming less and less of a priority when everything is rising but wages. This is not only a perfect way for me to express my gratitude to those who continue to support me, but to emphasize both the importance of higher education and the need to continue to support art of substance.

To win, you must purchase an Acid Reflex CD at a physical retail location or online (contest does not apply to vinyl).
Upon opening the CD, winners will receive notification stating “CONGRATULATIONS! YOU’VE WON $10,000 FOR EITHER SCHOOL EXPENSES OR HOUSING!” Only winning CD packages will contain notification and details for the claiming of prizes. Non-winning CD packages will not contain notification of any kind. For more details about this promotion, log onto: after October 1st.

Acid Reflex comes just in time for election year and contains commentary on a wide range of topics including black-on-black crime and violence, the ongoing problem of police brutality, war, politics and what Paris calls “the need for more of an equal balance between positive and negative influences in entertainment.” Acid Reflex is the latest installment of cutting-edge funk-and-rock-inspired hip-hop in a career spanning the sale of over 3.8 million units independently worldwide.
It features performances by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee and Parliament/Funkadelic frontman George “Dr.
Funkenstein” Clinton
and Public Enemy leader Chuck D.
