#30Anniversary – Paris “Sleeping With The Enemy”

Another project that falls in the long list of politically charged Hip Hop albums of the early 90’s, Paris’ second offering “Sleeping With The Enemy” came out in the last quarter of 1992 on his own label “Scarface Records”. With lyrics on a couple of tracks detailing how he would kill President Bush, Tommy Boy decided to part ways with the Cali emcee, forcing him to go the independent route. The best songs of the LP are the two singles, “The Days of Old” where Paris reminisces about the old days when life was better and “Assata’s Song”, a beautiful ode to black women.
