After landing a spot on a mixtape by notable Cleveland DJ Steph Floss‘, and catching the influence of several Midwestern DJs and tastemakers, Paper Paulk is ready to push forward with his campaign, highlighted by the release of his new EP, Opera, which drops on February 19.
In case you haven’t heard his harrowing “Opera” single, you can listen to it here, and watch the brand new video for “Never Give In,” which is above. Paulk is a gritty emcee, and found influence in greats like Jay Z and Tupac, which is evidenced by his passionate delivery and his tenacious new music video. If you let Paulk tell it, “Decide what makes you happy, figure out what you love and fight for it. Never give up and Never give in!”
Listen to Opera below, and watch the new video above. You can also pre-order Opera here. You won’t be disappointed.
