"With Paulie rocking the mic and Deedot making the beats, this San Francisco duo has an amazing creative chemistry. Deedot's beats blend classical piano, percussion, guitar riffs and tons of other elements for a fresh sound."
– Kalamazoo Gazette
"Paulie somehow lyrically melds equal parts Grand master Flash's "The Message," and "The Show" from Doug E. Fresh without getting lost in the dichotomy. No mean feat to pull off."
– Dj Lazy, Kick n Jams

PAULIE RHYME + DEEDOT PRESENT PUBLIC RADIO
Bay Area transplant PAULIE RHYME (of live hip hop band FINLESS BROWN) and San Francisco producer on the rise DEEDOT (MELINA JONES // NATE KROOKS) have joined forces to bring you PUBLIC RADIO. The two first met at a local hip hop show where both performed in 2004. From that point, PAULIE RHYME and DEEDOT continued to build their names with their respective crews in the ever-growing Bay Area Hip-Hop scene. They kept in touch and politicked about the possibility of collaborating on a track or two. Finally making it a reality in 2006, the chemistry and sound of the first session would evolve into a whole album - with DEEDOT manning the boards and production and PAULIE RHYME on the lyrics. They would take this project one step further by hitting the road for the cross-country GUY ON THE COUCH TOUR midway through recording, working out songs and getting feedback from the what inspires them the most - the people. PUBLIC RADIO is a tribute to the things we all love about Hip-Hop as our culture.
Cleveland bred PAULIE RHYME has been releasing independent records since the mid 90s and has worked with the likes of HEIRUSPECS, TUT, DJ LORD JAZZ, ODDJOBS, & 4TH DISCIPLE. He is also featured in the films, HIP HOP 4 LIFE, CLEVELAND vs. DETROIT, DETROIT vs. NEW YORK, and HIP HOP LIFE.
DEEDOT has worked with many artists, established and aspiring, and has recorded and produced songs for ROCK (BOOT CAMP/HELTAH SKELTAH), CABAL (BRAZA), LOKI DA TRIXTA, & MIND COMPLEX.
