A.Dd+, the duo of Paris Pershun and Slim Gravy, may just be leading Dallas towards a rap renaissance. With a recipe that falls somewhere between UGK’s downhome Southern cooking and the abstract vibes of the Native Tongues movement, the group’s first release Power of the Tongue, earned them local acclaim and a “Best Rap Act” nomination from the Dallas Observer. When Pigs Fly, their debut album, produced by Picnic Tyme (of Erykah Badu's Cannabinoids crew) dropped in March 2011. A.Dd+ will also be releasing a slew of new, unreleased music, in addition to videos from When Pigs Fly.
"With the video for 'Under' we wanted to push the envelope of creativity," explain the duo, who enlisted director Israel 'Izzy' Isas to shoot the visual. "We were able to show an inner conflict, a conflict with self, and the cause and effects of what we choose to do in our everyday life." Dustin Cavazos, who opens the song with a poignant verse that speaks to sidetracked aspirations, joins in the video, before Paris and Slim close out the song, each building atop producer Picnic Tyme's melancholy, piano-driven beat, which samples Little Dragon's "Twice."
