Each week, 889@Night will recognize local unsigned talent and promote their music on air as well as on our website. We highlight the talented few who got that “fire”. By the end of the week, we let our listeners choose whether they want these artists to be added to constant rotation or not. This week starting today, November 12th, 2012, we are highlighting local rapper Paranom and playing his music at midnight and 12:30 am every night this week.
Traversing through a young life that has brought him to many places, from Lynn and Boston to a few years in southern Alabama, Paranom is an emcee of Haitian descent who has pulled inspiration from various perspectives and experiences– making him a more well rounded individual and MC. Some have even called him “a seer.” Now residing in Brockton, MA, Paranom has that ability to connect to many people. He uses his amalgamation of influences from Soul, Jazz, Reggae, and Hip-Hop music in himself as a catalyst for the evolution of urban culture from its current state of a material based focus into a more balanced focus, that aims to ignite self-fulfillment and discovery through the creative arts.
At the growing age of 24, Paranom has obtained and continues to use his skillful ability of collecting his thoughts and experiences to help inspire, challenge, and unite people across all labels and barriers– by highlighting some of the past and current problems in the community and the solutions on the table that can be built towards. It is Paranom’s aim to help bring a new meaning to the term, “The Soundtrack to the Revolution.”
Not only with his lyrical ability has Paranom shown that he is someone to be watched out for, but he also turned heads with his stage presence. Because of this he has shared the Hip-Hop stage with the likes of: Tragic Allies, Krumb Snatcha, Shea Rose, and TDE’s own Ab-Soul & ScHoolBoy Q; among many other talented artists. This showcases Paranom as a well rounded artist enabling him to perform in front of any audience of any age.
This fall, witness Paranom’s rise as he will be releasing his first album entitled Five Seasons– soon to be available via physical copy and download on his website.
