Reveal, the original Poisonous Poet, is now officially back! Hot on the trail of his two recent viral videos ‘Neva Blink’ and ‘West London’, the self described “Gully Irani” releases “Warning” the first full music video from his forthcoming “Seven Shades” Solo EP; set to be released on the 7th of February. Reveal takes a break from the norm as he takes a very introspective look at himself and the events that have formed him.
Complete with unique, stunning, spaced out and trippy visuals, “Warning” is a very personal song, dedicated to Reveal’s Father, who was killed in 2003 by a landmine while working as a cameraman in Kurdistan. Reveal reflects on certain lifestyle choices he has made in the aftermath of the tragic circumstances he was faced with and their lasting effects.
The track is produced by Cannes Film Festival Special Jury Nominee, Paris based Iranian composer Mahdyar Aghajani and is definitely not your average run of the mill Hip-Hop.
Make sure you keep an eye out for the 7 track EP “Seven Shades” dropping on the 7th of February…

The British born/ NYC raised Hustler, Rapper, Poet, Actor, Novelist and Community Activist began his music career literally on the streets of South London after 18 years as a Tri-state resident, the last three of which were spent in the custody of NY’s County, City, State and Federal Institutions. His departure from the US transplanted him from The Bronx, NY housing projects to the council estates of Brixton, UK. A rich translation of not only accents, but of culture, mind state and inner city customs… An Immigrant’s Tale.

WHOISPARADISE [formerly Paradise The Prolific] is an Ambassador for the Youts. The Int’l Multipreneur uses his own troubled past as the prequel for balancing art with purpose. A past which places him in a unique position of earned street credibility when championing a lesser kudos’ sociopolitical subject matter. After exile from the USA, his prison poetry was set to the musical landscapes crafted by Brixton producer, Charlie “Baptist” Parker. Since his return from hiatus, Whoisparadise has featured on the MOBO nominated Afro-beats hit ‘We Are Africans (Remix)’ and most recently, ‘United We Stand’ featuring Magnum and video vixen Noni Zondi.
2012 KICKED-OFF with a truly personal show stopping live performance “Artist Salute” on FWD360.com‘s Wreck Sessions original series, marking his official return.
