Raised in NYC by world renown Congolese performers, Young Paris crafts a unique sound that threads the boundary between rap and electronic dance music and blends a fusion between Hip-Hop, Trap, and African drumbeats. Along with 5 of his brothers and sisters, he performs an exuberant live show that merges dance, performance art, and an unparalleled personal style. Since crafting his sound with his 2014 project Rap | Electronic, Young Paris was then selected to perform at Arcade Fire’s KANPE KANAVAL, as well as the Parisian leg of the AFROPUNK Festival, which helped open many doors for him.
More recently, YP became the latest addition to Jay Z’s Roc Nation family. He dropped his acclaimed full-length mixtape, African Vogue, through The FADER, and released brand new visuals for his singles “Get Ready,” featuring hip-hop legend M1 from Dead Prez, and Best of Me,” featuring Grammy nominated producer Benjamin Bronfman. Young Paris offers his crowds something different, with strong stylistic performances and unparalleled cultural composition.
