The Cowboys, the Grassy Knoll, J.R. Ewing, the Stanky Leg⦠Dallas, Texas, is known for lots of things. Progressive, forward-thinking hip-hop has, until now, not been one of them. Quirky yet streetwise, fun-loving yet dead serious,, the duo of Paris Pershun and Slim Gravy, may just be leading the city towards a rap renaissance. With a recipe that falls somewhere between UGKâs downhome Southern cooking and the abstract vibes of the Native Tongues movement, Paris (a.k.a. 23-year-old Arrias Walls) and Slim (Dionte Rembert, 22) move easily between slang anthems (âLikeamugâ), skirt-chasing tales (âSatellitesâ) and weighty raps about father figures and Black male incarceration (âMommaâs Brotherâ). Locally, they have even been labeled the âOutKast of Dallas.â As Paris states on âThe Rapper & The Poet,â the lead track fromâs upcoming debut LP, When Pigs Fly, the group strives to offer listeners âa double dose of reality mixed with tragedy mixed with immortality.â

The story begins in 2000 when Memphis-born Paris moved into the same North Dallas apartment complex as Slim. After years of rhyming together, the pair decided to make their partnership official in 2007, dubbing themselves (Spoken âAye-dee-dee,â with the plus sign silent) after attention deficit disorder, the most ubiquitous of youth behavioral problems. â is whatever you want it to be,â explains Slim, who is also known as âD.D.â âIt has many meanings like A Dynamic Duo, Analog and Digital. The plus sign symbolizes us being beyond what others are on, always adding to the craft never subtracting. Itâs all about imagination and creativity.â

In 2008, Paris and Slim met manager/then sound engineer Rosalinda Ruiz and, after a year holed up in her studio, they emerged with their debut mixtape, Power of the Tongue. While the 2009 release earned them local acclaim and a âBest Rap Actâ nomination from the Dallas Observer, it just as importantly led to their partnership with producer Picnic Tyme (of Erykah Baduâs Cannabinoids crew), who has become the groupâs sonic sensei and unofficial third member. âHe felt our creativity and really liked the setup of our first mixtape, and that was enough to get him interested in helping us develop a better sound for ourselves,â Paris explains.

Along with the Sore Losers (whose Vince Brown appears on âLikeamugâ) and Damaged Good$, Paris and Slim are at the center of a vibrant clique of Dallas MCs striving to do for their region what the Dungeon Family once did for Atlanta. âBasically, everybody we roll with are lyricists,â Paris says. âEverybody we roll with is more creative than what is seen on a national scale from Dallas artists.â

Coming off of the biggest performance of their career, opening for the Wu-Tang Clan at Dallasâs Granada Theater, are set to drop When Pigs Fly this spring. Produced entirely by Picnic Tyme, the LP takes listeners on a ride through the streets of Dallas and a journey through Paris and Slimâs own offbeat imagination.

âWhen Pigs Fly represents the impossible,â Slim says. âWe are doing what people are scared to do in this Dallas music scene. Weâre making the impossible, possible.â
