Name: Par-City (GiF & Willy Dope)

Hometown: The Bronx, NY

We grew up listening to: A Tribe Called Quest, Biggie, Mary J. Blige, OutKast, Mama Dope (lol)

Most people don’t know we: Are HUGE professional wrestling fans, avid gamers, and retired athletes.

Our style has been compared to: We hate being compared to anyone as we are trendsetters in our own right, but we have been mentioned along the lines of A Tribe Called Quest, D-Block, Slaughterhouse, Wale, Drake and J. Cole.

Our standout records and moments to date have been: Definitely our biggest moment so far was opening up for SlaughterHouse in front of a sold out crowd at the Best Buy Theater at Hot 97′s Metro PCS 5 Boro Tour. The energy from that crowd was amazing and just the fact that we got to share the stage with lyrically technicians like Slaughterhouse was awe-inspiring. It gave us a sense that the hard work we were putting in was paying off, and motivated us to work that much harder. As far as records go, one of our standout tracks has to be “Money On My Head” off of the Civilized Sessions mixtape. That track featured a verse from the homie Joe Budden, and we have been a fan of his since he had the hoodie over his head in Def Jam Vendetta, lol. It’s always been a personal goal of ours to do a record with him, because as an artist he’s someone I enjoy listening to and draw inspiration from, so besides “Money On My Head” being a dope ass track, it was an honor to work with Joe.

Our goal in Hip-Hop is: To inspire a generation to be themselves. There’s so many trends nowadays that the sense of individuality is essentially lost. Par-City is and always will be Par-City. Every record we release is a representation of some aspect of our lives and personalities, and I want people to see what were doing and understand you dont have to be trendy. Doing your own shit is just as dope.

We’re gonna be the next: Great duo in Hip-Hop.
