YOUNG PARIS Signed with ROC NATION
Published: Aug 11, 2016
Young Paris has officially signed with Roc Nation. The French-Congolese rapper Young Paris is fresh off the release of his African Vogue album. He’ll be bringing his entrancing dance performance, electronic beats, and “African flyness” to the Roc.
Young Paris’ new NYC subway-shot music video for “Best of Me,” which features Ben Bronfman—the billionaire/environmentalist/producer who you might also know as M.I.A.’s ex-husband.
“Always talking about that melanin” and “I made Africans dope again.”
“Best of Me” is the second single from Young Paris’ African Vogue album, following “Get Ready” with M1 of Dead Prez.
Jay and Roc Nation have clearly set their sights on African artists lately. Less than two weeks ago, the company officially announced their deal with Nigerian star Tiwa Savage—which quickly followed with her fans venting their concerns about her joining the Illuminati.
