The result of synchronizing the lyrics of Parix with such eloquent scenes is...
As thoughtless demeaning lyrics flood the airwaves with overused voice overs and reverberations, it’s becoming more challenging to find quality hip-hop and rap artists. However, I’ve found a dime, a hip-hop producer with real talent… and he comes in different forms.
