57th Dynasty front man WHOISPARADISE releases two brand new Transatlantic Hip-Hop viral videos for 2012
WHOISPARADISE the 57th Dynasty front man has released two brand new Transatlantic Hip-Hop Virals for 2012. THE MULTIPRENEUR returns with a new energy, a new wave of talent, a new focus and a new vibe which is already getting taste-makers both sides of the pond talking!
The British born/ NYC raised Hustler, Rapper, Poet, Actor, Novelist and Community Activist began his music career literally on the streets of South London after 18 years as a Tri-state resident, the last three of which were spent in the custody of NY’s County, City, State and Federal Institutions. His departure from the US transplanted him from The Bronx, NY housing projects to the council estates of Brixton, UK. A rich translation of not only accents, but of culture, mind state and inner city customs… An Immigrant’s Tale.
Whoisparadise’s career highlights include a MOBO Nomination, Winner of Best UK Hip-Hop Act TWICE with the critically acclaimed 57th Dynasty albums “Spoken Word” and “Boro 6 Vol.2″, 1st indie produced mainstream UK Hiphop Video, Love of Hiphop; Guy Ritchie’s Mean Machine OST, C.E.O of Edutainment venture TGSMP featuring KRS-One & Skinnyman, the lead part in Glyndebourne’s critically acclaimed Hip-h’opera, School 4 Lovers; VH1’s Music First Special; winner 2010-11 Our Heroes Community Campaigner Award, to present – Charity Director, Young People Matter; workshop facilitator of One Spirit at HMP Feltham Young Offenders Institute, all the whilst creatively advising a new wave of talented UK artists including Amplify Dot, Coldsteps and video vixen Noni Zondi.
WHOISPARADISE [formerly Paradise The Prolific] is an Ambassador for the Youts. The Int’l Multipreneur uses his own troubled past as the prequel for balancing art with purpose. A past which places him in a unique position of earned street credibility when championing a lesser kudos’ sociopolitical subject matter. After exile from the USA, his prison poetry was set to the musical landscapes crafted by Brixton producer, Charlie “Baptist” Parker. Since his return from hiatus, Whoisparadise has featured on the MOBO nominated Afro-beats hit ‘We Are Africans (Remix)’ and most recently, ‘United We Stand’ featuring Magnum and video vixen Noni Zondi.
2012 KICKED-OFF with a truly personal show stopping live performance “Artist Salute” on FWD360.com’s Wreck Sessions original series, marking his official return.
