about

Paris Solemn UK

What do you get with 'Paris Solemn'?
As an artist I can be deep and shallow.. I guess that's being human.
I aim to transfer the energy of the song directly to you.

My sound is a mix of hip hop, rnb, and the indigenous London Sound 'Grime'.
There's a poetic streak running through all three. I have a story to tell and will tell it the best way
I can.

Paris Solemn aka the 'Poetic Pretty Boy'

I'M BACK IN THE LOOP NOT TRAPPED IN THE CYCLE
TOO MANY MAN MOVE SIDEWAYS
BUT IN THE U.K..IT'S NOT A SIDE WALK
SO WHEN THEY TRY TALK?
MY REPLIES SHORT.
MAN ARE WOUNDED?
THEN I FIND SALT.
SEE WHAT THE TUNE DID?
WELL ITS MY FAULT.
IT'S CONFUSING..
COS I'M GRIME TAUGHT
BUT THEY'RE CALLING THIS U.K RAP
WHEN THOSE GUYS DON'T DO JACK BUT CLIMB STALKS
MY MIND'S FULL.. SO I'M MINDFUL
SOME GUYS ARE RUNNING ON EMPTY MORE DANGEROUSLY SOME GUYS ARE RUNNING ON ENVY
BUT MY GIRLS GOT A BEAUTIFUL SOUL
MY HOUSE HOLD AIN'T RUNNING ON SEXY..
I GO IN WHEN I WANT THAT'S FLEXI
I GO IN WHEN I WANT THAT'S FLEXI

I DUNNO WHY I'M SWINGING WITH HIM HE'S IN CHURCH ON SUNDAY SINGING A HYMN

WHICH ONE OF YOU ARE MESSING WITH SOLEMN
I'VE GOT BARE LINES NO COLLAGEN
MY TEMPER AIN'T UGLY.. JUST TOO SHORT FOR MODELLING
THEY WANNA KNOW WHAT I'M OFFERING
PICTURE MUSIC LIKE A SOCCER TING
I'M ON THE BALL
OUT THE BOX
I PROPER SING
COS I'VE GOT A TEACHER I OFTEN RING
THEM LOT ARE IN THE BOX
I CROSS EM IN
BLISSFULLY UNAWARE AS I KNOCK EM IN
DO OR DIE IS A SITCH THAT I'M OFTEN IN
BUT IN THE TOP LEAGUE
EVEN THOSE AT THE BOTTOM WIN
SO BIG UP AUSTIN FOR HOLLARING
GONNA ALTER YOUR PERCEPTION AND ADD YOU TO THE FOLLOWING
COS I'VE GOT THE BARS JUST NEEDED THE VENUES TO DROP EM IN
I WAS TRYNA DO 1000 GIGS WITH TERRABYTE RECORDS

I'M GOING IN IN INININ
GOT A PROBLEM WITH YOU NOT HIM HIM N IM
IF YOU WANNA GO N CALL HIM HIM N IM
I MIGHT GO N CALL HIM HIM N IM
IDENTIFY MAN LIKE HIM HIM N IM
NOW ITS HIM HIM N IM VS HIM HIM N IM!
I DUNNO WHY I'M SWINGING WITH HIM HE'S IN CHURCH ON SUNDAY SINGING A HYMN

Track Name: RAISED
(Intro)

I was born with a second job..

Yeah i'm coming from THAT struggle

Where if you ain't known to man

you can hold a bang

Like how'd you like THAT cuddle?

This is way more than a rap hustle...

Yo....

Yo....

Respect Da Ting!

Listen up.

I was raised well
That don't mean that I won't raise hell.
I don't sell drugs so I might not sell
Couldn't care less! if you can't tell
Coolie Hair I don't need no gel
Styled like this they call me Miguel 
Yeah I got a spice n I call her Mel 
In your recent form all I see is L'S...
'Cos I was raised well not well off,
Yes-I found something I was set on and set off,
No-I ain't someone you can tell on or tell off,
Famalam I do not let on I let off
Call everyone's bluff I'm dead on I dead off
Call everyone blood, red on or red off
But know that Dark0's my brother, 
Fam I swear I that I could pull 'sen' off 

I was raised well not-dragged up
Trust Any funny biznezz gets flagged up 
lewisham road with man with a shank tucked-
That road next to the Tescos flats Bruv!
Joint enterprise coulda seen man banged up
Two hooded black boys weren't clocked that's...luck
Been riding my luck ever since
Guys wanna come in my face never flinch
I just switch never hint..
If I Fight for my life you can't live
I'm going..going..gone you can't bid
 hammers been brought down it is what it is
I was so grime I couldn't write a bridge..
Too much to live for couldn't Knife ya ribs
Don't say he never needed that fam he did! 
Man got a hiding then he hid...

Cos I'm from the square just not that circle
The Bad boy ting is dead,
I saw the bad boy ting i went left
Meaning - I did me instead
You can what you want in Jest 
I'll make you Eat your words ingest-
them 
Me and my pen are best friends
But it's not far away its no pen friend!
I've Been on mic since Ant n Declan
Fake one tens in West-end
I'm a stand-up guy no question
I'm a stand-up guy no heckling
Bankrupt guys wanna add 2cents in 
Man are 2 faced on a Harvey Dent ting - 
I'm really a roll with all the de-friending! 

My name's Paris...I'm not P-money but I land on heads when i flip ...
32 waste men joined at the hip 
Buss blanks, must be the snip
You're not a bad boy not even a smidge
I'm going inside regardless 
I told them just let me do the tip
Because they weren't there when manny got ripped 
When I lit up the mic with a skank that's stiff
After which it's like which gal should I pick!?
I cross gal that's tick
Here's summa da Henny and coke for 
a sip
And These guys won't last very long so
I'm the battery life in a brick
And I heard about what they did -trust them  ....
don't trust them that's how it is
So many domestics where I lived 
Me I got nits I was friends with the kids
We yam the whole apple including the pips
Then i got government help for my kicks
And they tell me stay out of harms way
But that's my address, that's where I live.. 

See I'm not bad...my area is..

(Tell them straight)

I'm not bad...my area is...

I'm not bad...my area is...but I still have faith 
Track Name: STICKIN' 2 MY GUNZ
Mmmmhmm mmm
Mmmmhmm mmm

I was so cold...

They never said that it was easy..

This feeling that I have won't leave me..

It won't leave no...

Watch this space
but not this face ...
I was Dman before I met Dman
Super before I shot with Capes
May 8, 25 candles on a chocolate cake
If you don't cut it,
I chop n change
I'm on it like sonic imposter mates
I'll jump on man like its the Robotnik stage
Foolish guy, forgot his place
I drain the colour from a doctors face
They wish that weren't the case
What can they bring to me?
All they've got is grapes
I've been thinking alot
So I Stopped and prayed
On the same knees
That I dropped on n grazed
I'm from a race that was enslaved
For the profit that cotton made..
But I'm ok in the UK
Even if Me n mum Top n' tailed..
They can't see the vision you can do a lot with brail
So safe for following my Adopted trail..
Some of the plans I concocted failed
But I've gotta do something. Forget being locked in jail- I've got faith


I'm sticking to my guns
And there ain't no more to it
And when a situation comes
and there ain't no way through it

I'm gonna switch it up on them 'cos I've got faith
I'm gonna switch it up on them 'cos I've got faith
I'm gonna switch it up on them 'cos I've got faith
(Swear I'm gonna) switch it up on them 'cos I've got faith


I'm gonna be upfront you need P upfront
It's been slow but a breakthrough came through..
well†actually 3 at once
I saw red then the lights went green at once
Waste mans still wanna call a tree a stump
But I'm over here knowing I'm over here growing
Tryna get doe in I'm over here owing
Tryna be a shoe in never dipping a toe in
and when I'm skipping and flowing
I get deep but never written a poem
Just tryna get seen like a cinema showing
then leave a footprint as if it were snowing
then check my bredrin with a riddim to show him.
and I-wanna see man united cross the line it isn't a throw in
Said I wanna see man united but cross the line and it isn't a throw in
So polite but won't ask permission to go in
012 I had two choices-employment or spitting I made a decision
Contributed to the house that I live in
Got slow money to quicken
They get panic stricken when they hear my voice
'Cos they know that I won't forget
And they know that they aren't forgiven
But I could never get one of my dargs to sick 'em
I'm staying away from the ways of the curbs and the prison
Progression will cut 'em to ribbons
Kept up my mental condition in a war of attrition
I've got the world at my feet..
Ever since I was born and the doctor decided to flick 'em
Unshakeable faith.. even though I weren't planned or christened
Respect da ting!

I'm sticking to my guns
And there ain't no more to it
And when a situation comes
and there ain't no way through it

I'm gonna switch it up on them cos I've got faith
I'm gonna switch it up on them cos I've got faith
I'm gonna switch it up on them cos I've got faith
(Swear i'm gonna) switch it up on them cos I've got faith

I'm sticking to my guns
And there ain't no more to it
And when a situation comes
and there ain't no way through it

I'm gonna switch it up on them cos I've got faith
I'm gonna switch it up on them cos I've got faith
I'm gonna switch it up on them cos I've got faith
(Swear i'm gonna) switch it up on them cos I've got faith...
Track Name: VICE VERSA
Baby Yeah..

Baby Yeah..

I don't know if it's something in the water
It's B-Blind leading the blind who taught ya?
T-Time's money and I can't afford ya
†I've been waiting on you...
Talkin' bout
On the phone and pacing the room
Taking the rough with the smooth
Too real to -pick n choose..
And we can have different views
I can't judge your life..
Cos I ain't lived it too... (That's fair)
Said I can never†judge your life baby girl
Cos I ain't lived it too..

I need to know if that's vice versa
Cos if it ain't we need to change our temperature
All now I'm sensing†how our energies are different...
But we can work it out
Hey. I didn't cuff, but I did enough
I don't flip the script- I rip it up
You had the power before but I had it after we....

I followed through I improved
I Invested time in you
I think that I'm owed time in lieu
Tell me you never kept another guy in view

They should work on their approach...
They just don't respect the borders
Watch these cat callers get blessed with daughters
and maybe now they'll find it awkward

I know I keep saying- but I'm a Taurus- and we find it hard to listen
and on top of that I'm a creative- and we ain't the best with timing and commitment
Oh lord...

I don't mind fighting with you if we're fighting for something
you're at the front of the que don't let nobody jump in..
It's been overdue glad we had this discussion
We should be a Power couple..
Fuck being in a power struggle

I need to know if that's vice versa
Cos if it ain't we need to change our temperature
All now I'm sensing† how our energies are different...
But we can work it out
But we can work it out
But we can work it out...

What that they say? No Friction.. No spark.
Track Name: FRICTION
So Cold...

Yeah..

Yeah...Hey.

I know this ain't one sided
You only lied once I did
They wanna know what's going on
I just reply that I'll live
You're getting questions from your best friends
But I know you stayed tight lipped
Till u caved and confided
And they still don't know who to side with

Woah

First time for everything I guess
This was the first time everything was blessed
I deliver like the post man but I need everything addressed
I'm so cold..

I didn't wanna cause no friction with you-
You're the one that I run to-
They're just the ones that I run tru..

Guess it was nothing to hide 'till it was something she hid...
She told me its "nothing, it's fine.." But it's something I did..
When you were far away that gave me something to miss
The law of attraction's really something legit
I'm tryna stay up-like I'm stuck in a lift
I need a house in the city ..And one in the sticks
But can't live with myself..who cares where I live.

I know you've been watching me closely
You saw my picture and her emoji..
I called you crazy
But baby low key
That's what I say when I get caught out
There's a whole 'nother side of you that I brought out
I'm responsible I know
I just wanted to ease you in
I never wanted to
rock-the-boat... can you see where I'm coming from?
I had issues you were
not to know - I apologise

I didn't wanna cause Friction with you
Cos I showed conviction with you
Being physical is too much too soon
But it never feels that way
n we'll never heal that way
But I'll stop second guessing you
If you stop second guessing me
I think I've got a remedy..can you separate your love from your jealousy?

Ohh...ohh..ohh.. baby
Track Name: SAFE HAVEN
Hey...hey...hey...yeah..

So let me be your safe haven
When this world is mistaken
So let me be your safe haven
When this world is mistaken

They don't get you no..
And they won't let you grow
But you won't need no one else..
Maybe you can tell...

See i'm better than I've ever been
now I've found that heroine
And no I ain't talking a drug
My head's in the clouds
So many air miles I'm clocking up
She keeps it 100 Don't need topping up

You-just-can't-compare it
The wrong person calls I'll air it.
I'm gonna bare my soul..
Can you bear it?

See I appreciate that you came to see me
They don't like it when I make you my DP
They wanna copy me in everything like a CC...
But from now on they'll find it harder to reach me...

I swear.... (I swear)
I swear.... (I swear)
I swear.... (I swear)
I swear... yeahh-oh..

Safe Haven.

You put your faith in me
(Eternally grateful, Eternally Eternally grateful)
imma pay it back

And I love you..you ain't gotta say it back

Live your truth and I'll live mine
Live your truth
Just live your truth
Oh live your truth and I will live....mine

Just go and take..time
And we will be.. fine



You can close your eyes

You're Safe.

Bless you.
