Jamil "King" Paris is one of the newest artist to join Slipnslide Records On Da Grind program. This program has been credited for the launch of artist career's such as Plies, Swazy Baby and Camar aka Mr International. King will be releasing his debut mixtape "King's Place" through the program and looks to find a label that matches his style and ambition. King prides himself on having some of the best lyrics in the game and aims to produce nothing less than a hit everytime he enters the studio. The best quality of King as an artist is that he understand music and what it takes to one day be a multi-platinum recording artist. King is fairly new to the game as he just professionally recorded a song this past summer. Yet, one listen to King's music and you will learn quick that he is no rookie by far. King has been writing music from a very young age but never focused 100% on the craft because of his college football career at the University of Kentucky. He did not start to see music as a profession until he received an email from Slipnslide Records A&R Otha "Vakseen" Davis, inviting him to display his talents in the SNS On Da Grind Program. Look for King to make a mark on the music industry in 2010. King (Jamil Paris) was born and raised in the mean streets of Gifford, Florida in the Victory Park Apartments on 40th Avenue and King Place. Being the son of a King Pin introduced him to a life of money, cars and females at a very young age. He was raised by his grandmother and mother in a home that put God first. But his childhood street influences and growing up in poverty made him want more. His father was never around much do to the lifestyle he chose to live, so with no father at home King decided to let the streets raise him. "All my life I saw nothing but drugs, money, cars, clothes and hoes. So naturally me as a kid watching my oldest brother and every other older male,live that lifestyle, that made me want the same thing. I learned at a very young age to get money. My momma and grandmother worked hard but they couldn't afford to give me name brand this and that. So as I grew up I learned from the streets how to get it off the muscle. The streets taught me alot of lessons about life and those lessons drive me today. My experiences in the streets and what I saw growing up are the biggest influences of my music. Where I'm from if you ain't a real nigga then why are you alive? You aint got to sell drugs to be real, but you got to be true to yourself, take care of your family, and get money BY ANY MEANS." -King
