In his new Vanity EP, Paris Price realizes that he has an obsession with beauty. He shows self-awareness by knowing he gravitates to things that please the eye. The definition of Vanity is excessive pride in one’s appearance or achievements. Too much of anything is the demise of a man. Seeing more success and being introduced to a different lifestyle has ups and downs. Vanity is also a mirror showing your reflection but not how you are inside. Paris shares that getting out of the military and moving to LA has been pivotal. He chooses to curate his lifestyle, including beautiful women, vintage cars, fancy restaurants, nice clothes, etc. The finer things in life. Nothing wrong with living the life you want to live, but you can’t lose yourself in it. You can have everything in the world, but you’re miserable if you are not happy internally.
While being a “boujee bachelor,” he is deep-down a lover boy. He realizes just because something or someone is beautiful on the outside doesn’t mean the inside matches. Chasing beauty is pleasing but can have no end, and you can miss out on real love. At the end of the day, if you don’t have real love, you are slowly dying.
Paris Price started his music career as a rapper in 2018. He quickly started seeing success on social media and going viral frequently. Chris Brown posted one of his freestyles, rapped on Sway in The Morning, and got the nod from several other prominent artists. Paris was on active duty for almost five years but still played music. He wanted to start taking his career much more seriously but knew things needed to change. In 2021 he left the military and moved to LA to pursue his music career full-time. He was attending the LA Film School majoring in Audio Production to learn how to operate professionally.
With LA being one of the most expensive places to live, he had to find other avenues to support his career. Paris is a self-taught barber and has been cutting since 12. He started cutting hair on the side in LA for extra money. The business began to climb, and the clientele was expanding. Within a few weeks, he was cutting celebrities. Being a celebrity barber wasn’t entirely in the plans, but it worked, and he could still make music. Since then, Paris has been able to work with producers and musicians that have paved the way for him to dive deeper into his craft and show more of his vocal talent. Having a deep love of R&B since he was a child, he decided to pour that into the art. He readily embraces his versatility more than ever, showing that he can’t be put in a box.
