Critical Praise For A.Dd+:

"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

"When Pigs Fly is an illustration of the duo’s versatility... Whether you are looking for something that jams in the truck, gets the club jumping or makes your brain spin, chances are you can find it in this project." -

The Song:

Giving themselves a well-deserved pat on the back, A.Dd+ celebrate their long and arduous journey towards success with their new song "Getting Far." Along with their long-time producer, Picnic Tyme, the duo reunited with Mz. Fortune, the soulful voice also featured on A.Dd+'s previous single, "Greedy." "Mz. Fortune put her spin on the hook," says A.Dd+, adding that it was her energy that "elevated the song. It made it more emotional, more heartfelt, realer."

"Getting Far" reflects on Paris Pershun's and Slim Gravy's achievements, starting with when the duo first came together in 2007 and culminating with the recent release of their critically acclaimed LP, When Pigs Fly, and thus the song shouldn't be seen as just another bravado-laden, "look at me now" cliche, but rather a humble reflection filled with deep appreciation. "The song signifies growth - we've come a long way since we first started a few years ago," the duo explains. "We've been on one hell of a ride this year, doing things that a lot of people where we're from aren't able to do, and so we wanted to give people some insight to where we started and where we're going."

Known for masterfully balancing between the light-hearted and the profound, "Getting Far" shows A.Dd+ at their most poignant. "I think the people who have followed us know we can make all types of songs, so we are really trying to channel specific emotions and experiences into this next wave of music," says A.Dd+.

The Background:

Quirky yet streetwise, fun-loving yet dead serious, A.Dd+, the duo of Paris Pershun and Slim Gravy, may just be leading Dallas 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, the group’s first release Power of the Tongue, earned them local acclaim and a “Best Rap Act” nomination from the Dallas Observer. When Pigs Fly, their debut album, produced by Picnic Tyme (of Erykah Badu's Cannabinoids crew) was released in March 2011, with high praise from a variety of outlets, including the Dallas Observer, which wrote that the album is possibly "the best hip-hop album Dallas has ever released." Performing in support of the album throughout 2011, A.Dd+ will also be releasing a slew of new, unreleased music, in addition to videos from When Pigs Fly.
