Bay Area-based political rapper Paris is taking the offensive against police brutality and what he calls the “increasing acceptance of black death” with the first single and video from his forthcoming album, Pistol Politics.
The single, “Night of the Long Knives,” is his opening salvo and entry into the ongoing culture wars surrounding the issues of police brutality, racism and violence that have been exacerbated during his six year hiatus from music. It is a vicious commentary on America’s current state of affairs, and features lyrics and imagery that capture the white-hot rage so many feel but rarely see reflected in the media or their popular entertainment choices.

Pistol Politics will be available in 2015.
