Critical Praise For A.Dd+:
"The best rap album that Dallas has ever seen, front to back." - Dallas Observer
"Another total jam from Dallas' own A.Dd+." - Gorilla vs. Bear
"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
"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." - KevinNottingham.com
Having moved beyond their recent LP, When Pigs Fly, and still putting the finishing touches on their new EP, a project that will include production from Black Milk, S1, Picnictyme, and others, Dallas duo A.Dd+ continues to release a string of new, quality tracks they're now packaging and releasing them as a collection of free, non-album singles packaged as "Loosies." The latest in this line of new freebies for the fans is "Genocide," easily one of the most aggressive tracks that duo Slim Gravy and Paris Pershun have released to date.
"We're drawing a line between the music we make and the BS that Dallas is mostly known for," say A.Dd+, citing their inspiration for the track. "We represent a new wave of artists here, with more diversity and substance – and we're proud of that." And as bold as the statement is from the two rappers, the beat is with them step-for-step, a raucous affair full of grinding synths and lively vocal chops, that was produced by Brain Gang Blue and co-produced by Picnictyme. "King Blue just gave me a beat and he said, 'Make sure that you rock it'/ 'Bout a year ago, big bro gave us a key to the city, said, 'Here, ni**a, lock this bitch," raps Slim Gravy, "Mold with the old/ Grow with the new/ Ni**a die, pick a side/ Any two, gonna lose/ Gotta pick one!"

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.
