I was recently introduced to Riot !n Paris by my friend Haley, who was quick to tell me that I needed to check out this music because it was posted on Kanye’s blog. That’s a pretty accurate call to action, since it seems that whatever Kanye brings to the limelight eventually leaves a mark on society. Whether or not that’s a good thing is questionable, but I think what we have here is a good thing. If I had to classify it, I think I’d say hipster-hop, but it’s not falling in the class of Hoodie Allen, Chiddy Bang, The Deans List, Rocky Business, to me. It’s a bit of a breath of fresh air. They sing a bit, they raps, they won me over.
Riot !n Paris are a hip-hop rock duo hailing from Brooklyn, NY. They are signed to Champion Sound. Before being signed, they went by the name of The Freshmen, but soon after changed their name to Riot !n Paris. The two emcees go by the names of Mercy and Pete.
