FRESHOUTMEDIA.COM ARTICLE "Hip hop and punk rock are as opposite as haikus and opera to the untrained ear. Although the two genres differ sonically, take a closer listen to the lyrics of politically charged hip hop and punk groups, and there you’ll find overlapping themes of societal disregard, poor living conditions, and corrupt government practices. As early as the 1970s, cats like Afrika Bambaataa sparked a union between these two rebellious sub-cultures, welcoming the punks from Lower East Side Manhattan to the Zulu Nation gatherings in the Bronx. Although aliances such as these have dwindled over time, there are still artists fighting to preserve this unique culture mix today. In Philly, The Mighty Paradocs have been holdin’ it down for the punks and the hip hop heads (and any other music lovers for that matter) for over six years. Fronted by the onslaught of lyrical jabs delivered by female emcees Dirty Focus and Supercam, the Paradocs bring to the table a funky, punk-inspired hip hop sound that defies traditional music standards. Verses with postmodern ideals set the tone against the uptempo, yet rough backdrop created by guitarist Dr. Ell Train, bassist Prof. Jazz, and drummer Kung Fu Joe. But me telling you about their music is pointless without you hearing the Paradocs for yourself, or better yet checking them out live. In an effort to keep their movement alive and well, the Paradocs host two monthly events in Philly focused on mashin’ up diffent styles and exposing people to new music:

Open Your Eyes With Music
This band is awesome, they talk about real shit going on in politics today. CopSpit is about how your word isn't shit to the word of a cop. They really get you into it to with the head banging and running around the stage. Rebecca ran around the Rotunda the first time that I saw them, right through the audience and jumped back on stage. Put that together with some live music and a sweet mix of style. Buy this album, I wake up to 40 oz of hurricane every day.

REBELLION CENTRAL
the Mighty Paradocs: two beautiful young women of color (one black; one beige) doing a punk/hip-hop hybrid, screaming out words of rebellion while jumping around the stage in front of an out-of-control audience. "Pissy Politicians" was one of the highlights.
