With Civilized Sessions Vol. 1 on the way, the residents of Par-City would like to share some visuals with you from the upcoming project.
WATCH: "10 FEET TALLER" – DIRECTED BY PUMA
Here’s the long awaited "10 Feet Taller" video featuring Gif of Par-City along with Bronx’s newest R&B sensation L.i & Harlem’s Esso. "10 Feet Taller" is produced by Austin Powerz of Long Island, NY. The video, directed by Joe Puma, shows those frequent memories of starting summer flings.
The song itself is about the allure of the "rockstar" lifestyle for an aspiring musician, i.e. having money, women, and popularity beyond one’s wildest dreams. It also questions whether these things are all worth it. After all, money (and the popularity that comes with it) for better or worse doesn’t define who you really are.
"It’s kind of a glimpse into the mind of the person that wants to be larger than life. The beauty of it all is that it is things that I’ve seen, felt, and experienced because of my music. It never hurts to feel 10 feet taller than anybody else in the room," said Esso.
Par-City’s GiF said, "We wanted to do a song with Esso for quite a while now. His style fits right in with what Par-City brings to the table musically. Knowing that he dubbs himself ‘The Anti-Socialite,’ we knew he’d fit with the message of the song. Enjoy your fortunes, but be leery of the people that come with it."
"I admire L.i’s work ethic and how passionate he is about his craft," said Willy Dope, "He went from singing in front of our family to opening for Trey Songz."
WATCH: "WHO YOU (REMIX)" – DIRECTED BY PUMA
Recording Artists Par-City bring you the official video for the "Who You" Remix featuring New Jersey’s Anti, Queen’s 100 Grand, Connecticut’s Mr. Ivory Snow and Brooklyn’s Franchise Liaison produced by The Iron Quills, which shows true lyricism with a cinematic view. The video is directed by Joe Puma of The Program LLC. The original version of "Who You" appeared on the Fueled by Revenge EP. The remix will appear on Par-City’s Civilized Sessions Vol. 1 due out in December 2011.
