Oscar Jackson, Jr. (born October 29, 1967), better known as Paris, is an American Hip Hop artist from San Francisco, California
known for his militantly confrontational rapping, and especially the controversial tracks "Bush Killa" and "What Would You Do?".
He was catapulted onto the national scene in 1990 with his hit single "The Devil Made Me Do It" and album of the same name,
after earning a degree in economics from UC Davis. Originally released on Tommy Boy Records, his first single was banned by
MTV. Since then his stance on political issues and social commentary have both aided and hindered his quest to bring his music
and messages to the masses.
