Bio

Rapper/Producer Parris Austin takes his audience on a journey every time his music is heard. This multi-talented artist has successfully merged his talents together to develop a sound that is both familiar and new, while still maintaining the New York City natural edge. It has been said that P. Austin's music is classic east coast rap with a hint of Kanye West, as featured on artistdirect.com. P. Austin is currently working on his debut album titled "Rock The Beat". While still keeping the balance between being an independent artist and pushing for a major recording/distribution deal, it has been said that P. Austin is the key. His music is a cumulative collection of rap history versus the future of the next generation. Parris Austin is no stranger to performing. He's had the opportunity to open for major artists such as Nelly, Destiny Child, Mobb Deep, D12, and many more. There is a list of venues he is currently set to appear at in major hotspots from coast to coast. Over the years, he has been producing/songwriting for artists across all the major music spots within the country. Parris Austin's passion for the art does not only stop at recording or performing. He has also helped launch an upcoming radio program for unsigned and independent artists/ labels called "The Treazy Radio Show" (treazyradioshow.com). They've surpassed their 100th episode with many special features, and still continue to increase their listener audience around the world weekly. Growing up in New York City, P. Austin experienced pure hip-hop at a young age. He saw the music business from neighborhood artists, such as Kool G. Rap, Eric B. & Rakim, Salt-N-Pepa, Kid-N-Play, LL Cool J, and even Kwame. Watching the jams in the parks at night, while the turntables were plugged into the lamp post, and rappers battled, gave him insight to the culture that most artist emulate from TV but don't fully understand. Having a close realative who was a radio disc jockey, so music is in Parris Austin's veins. "I feel like there's a reason why I was there at the beginning. If this was the Matrix movie, I'm starting to feel like Neo" is what he stated in Next Level's magazine issue. Since then, he has achieved large exposure across the country including websites like the popular American Idol Underground (idolunderground.com). It is a site affiliated with the hit television series "American Idol". It's where "P" is closely watched as a popular artist, as he continues to win contests (Weekly On-Demand, Rap Competition, and March Competition). He was also a Big Push Finalist, also mentioned in American Idol Magazine. With his innovative beats and powerful lyrics, it's apparent that P. Austin is ready to start chasing the reality of becoming part of the next dynasty. With a fourth quarter mix-tape surfacing and an early 2010 album release for "Rock The Beat", there could be a new meaning to the saying "The streets is watching."
