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

The Song:

Dallas duo A.Dd+ are currently in the midst of their first national tour, opening up for indie favorite Black Milk, and although the guys will be out on the road until the end of March, Paris Pershun and Slim Gravy are keeping the music coming, this time with a song called "Can't You See." The song, produced by Nick Nack, will appear on the Austin DJ/producer's forthcoming album, State Machine, which will be released in the coming weeks via Crowd Control Records.

"What's interesting about this song," notes Slim Gravy, "was that I had written my verse and the hook without even telling Paris the concept, and his verse ended up matching perfectly." And that concept, according to Paris, is, "the weight of petty issues and people, and how they can shape your perspective on life in a given moment." The gist of the song, a melancholy track built around Nick Nack's slowed, guitar-laden beat, is summed up in one succinct bar from Paris' verse, when he raps, "The success turned me to anti-social socialite."

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. In 2009, A.Dd+ released their debut mixtape, Power of the Tongue, a project that earned them regional acclaim and a "Best Rap Act" nomination from local alternative weekly the Dallas Observer, but it was in 2011, with the release of their official debut When Pigs Fly that the duo broke through. The LP was hailed as "the best hip-hop album Dallas has ever released," by the Dallas Observer, who also nominated the group for "Best Album" and "Best Rap Act" in their year-end Dallas Observer Music Awards. The project also earned A.Dd+ acclaim from national media outlets such as XXL Magazine and Pitchfork, with a coveted Chairman's Choice feature and inclusion in the "Best Of: Underrated Rap Releases of 2011" list, respectively. Pitchfork described the group as, "the spawn of UGK and Outkast, combining street and cerebral." 2012 already looks to be fruitful for the duo, who kicked off the year taking part in the Red Bull Skooled Tour, a seven-city run through the southwest alongside a collection of Texas legends and fellow up-and-comers. The duo is embarking on their first North American tour, opening up for Black Milk's Claps And Slaps Tour, this spring.
