Apr 9 2024 • 1 hr 6 mins

For the debut episode of THE RECORD STORE PODCAST, I'm joined by longtime friend and Detroit Hip-Hop artist Paradime, who recently dropped a new album Period. via Mello Music Group after taking over a decade long break from releasing music.

In this conversation, Paradime discusses various aspects of his music career, including the importance of quality merchandise and live shows in building a fanbase, and the love for vinyl and collecting music.

We also go through his creative process and inspiration, reflecting on past performances and growth, putting on memorable live shows, the impact of the Blind Pig venue, being grateful for the Detroit hip-hop community, and the importance of humility and respect for the culture. In this conversation.

We discuss his journey in the music industry and the impact it had on his personal life. He reflects on taking a break from music to focus on building a family and the challenges of balancing music and family life. He emphasizes the importance of making music for personal expression and being true to oneself.
