Before The Drugs - EP/Demo
Before the Drugs is a project created to give the world an idea of The Paragon's sound and potential. Sonically, it's an epic journey that has a Kanye, Gambino, Outkast, meets Drake sound, yet at the same time it sounds like nothing imagined up to this point. It starts off with the epic intro Welcome to the Paragon that grabs you in. While the cohesive, fluidity from track to track creates a listening experience that drives you through an almost trance like odyssey where each song offers something new and demands the listener's absolute attention. It's dark, enticing, and almost warm storyline of hunger, fleeting love, and finding purpose mixed in with a refreshing balance of lyricism challenges the listener's to look inside and by the project's end, it leaves you with the feeling that only true art can give...and that is appreciation.
