SpeakEasy (2004)
Featured on Feva Compilation (2004)


Feeling a bit camera shy


Paco began his writing career as many lyricists do by writing poetry as a teenager. After high school, set on broadening his horizons Paco went away to college. Caving into is lifelong affinity for music, Paco began DJ at parties and small dance clubs. During his college career he was fortunate enough to study in Europe for a semester where he hosted a hip hop based radio program on a Luxembourgish radio station. After honing his lyrical skills to a point that he felt comfortable with, he began performing at house parties and bars.
Upon graduating from college Paco began competing in battles at Top Cats in Cincinnati and attended The Recording Workshop, a music production school located in southern Ohio.
After completing the production school, Paco moved back to Cleveland and was featured on a compilation CD for the clothing store Feva. In 2004 he released his first solo effort “SpeakEasy” on Akrowdy Records.
Currently Paco has begun recording his second album, tentatively titled “Good Mourning” with Chad “Reason” Wade of HipHopcalypse Entertainment.
Paco describes his influences as following “my rhyme structure was influenced by artists such as Raekwon, Young MC, Eminem, Deltron 3030 and my content has been influenced by artists such as Mos Def, Talib Kwali, Slug, Aesop Rock, KRS-One and anybody else who has something relevant to say.” Paco uses the acronym PHD, which stands for patented hasty delivery, to describe his delivery. “I’m basically trying to pack the most content that I can in the 16 bars given to deliver my message.” The result is a unique, mush mouthed sound intertwined with clever punch lines and dizzying rhyme schemes.
Paco delivers on his promise that “the finest 16 seen will be gleamed in this script, I promise/ don’t misconstrue my confidence as cockiness I’m bein honest.”
