Critical Praise for A.Dd+:

“ADd+ admit that they’re not stars, but they probably should be. This is the sound of two dudes rapping for people to take notice. And you should.” – – Jeff Weiss

“There’s something really special about what’s happening in the Dallas underground hip-hop scene at the moment — and A.Dd+… are a major part of that.” – Dallas Observer

The Song:

“If you ain’t fuck wit’ me then, then don’t fuck wit’ me now.” As the refrain rings through the hook of A.Dd+‘s new track “Where You Been,” one can’t help but recognize how far the Dallas hip-hop duo has come and admit, “Dayam. They have a point.”  Their claim to have “put Dallas on the map,” is legitimate–they have graced the cover of the Dallas Observertaken home “Best Group Act” and “Best Rap Act” at the Observer’s 2012 Music Awards, and sold out Dallas’ legendary Granada Theater this past January. Their profile has spread nationally as well: they have toured with the likes of Black Milk and Erykah Badu, have been named to Pitchfork‘s Underrated Rap Releases of 2011, and were declared one of Spin‘s “5 Artists to Know” in May 2012.  Produced by DJ Burn One, “Where You Been?” sets the tone for A.Dd+’s upcoming project #DiveHiFlyLo, which is scheduled for release later this year. Parris Pershun discusses how Burn One’s production fit like a glove: “The song beat describes how we feel at this point.” Slim agrees, musing, “Burn One’s style is the perfect mix between new southern production and old school south, which is the exact style we have.”

A.Dd+ Background:

The Cowboys, the Grassy Knoll, J.R. Ewing, the Stanky Leg… Dallas, Texas, is known for lots of things. Progressive, forward-thinking hip-hop has, until now, not been one of them. Quirky yet streetwise, fun-loving yet dead serious, A.Dd+, the duo of Paris Pershun and Slim Gravy, may just be leading the city towards a rap renaissance. With a recipe that falls somewhere between UGK’s downhome Southern cooking and the abstract vibes of the Native Tongues movement, Paris (a.k.a.  Arrias Walls) and Slim (Dionte Rembert) been labeled the “OutKast of Dallas.” As Paris states on “The Rapper & The Poet,” the lead track from A.Dd+‘s debut LP, When Pigs Fly, the group strives to offer listeners “a double dose of reality mixed with tragedy mixed with immortality.” They are preparing to release #DiveHiFlyLo later this year.
