Paris Louis – Deathcolors
Paris Louis, an artist I discovered through a local buying-and-selling sneaker group on Facebook, has released his debut mixtape, Deathcolors. The Montreal rapper is a breath of fresh air, not only because of his ability to craft songs and hooks but also because of his songs’ lengths. Unlike many rappers of his ilk, Paris Louis isn’t afraid to make three-and-a-half-minute-long songs, instead of following the two-minute song trend SoundCloud has cultivated. This allows each track to be a more satisfying listen, with more room for verses and sustained hooks. Paris Louis’s sound blends those of Travis Scott and Jay Critch, while maintaining his own unique vocals. All seven songs on this tape are catchy and feature moody, attention-keeping trap beats. With this tape, Paris Louis proves himself to be an artist to watch out for in the years to come.
Trial Track: “Apt 200”
