Pauleon Da Don “In the midst of the calm, he is the storm... but more so, among his peers, he is looked upon as an underground icon...” - K. Thompson, 7/2014 Adversity sometimes gives rise to greatness. The day-in, day-out struggle of scratching an existence out of the hood can instill in one an aspiration to conquer the highest peaks. America's most poverty-stricken slums and crime-ridden inner cities have birthed some of the greatest visionary talent the music industry has ever seen. Those who struggle to make it out seldom succeed, but the ones with the will to do so possess a certain spark that drives them to unimaginable heights. Pauleon is one such artist destined for greatness. Growing up in downtown New Orleans, the young rapper and lyricist was exposed to the rhythms of the street at a young age. Even at that early stage, the small-statured and soft-spoken “kid prodigy” was working with one of the most well-known underground production teams in the Deep South. These dangerous streets have birthed their own distinct culture of arts and music which whispers its secrets to those with the ears to listen. Pauleon has heard this Muse, unleashing his vision with a craft that has earned him the nickname: the “Architect.” Pauleon has since become one of the most widely talked-about and highly-regarded upcoming hip-hop artists in New Orleans. True to his name, "The Architect" weaves his own story into his melodic rhythms and lyrical narratives, bringing the tribulations of the streets to life. He has been featured in Lil Wayne's underground project The Drought 2 for Cash Money Records, worked on production for Lloyd of Murda Inc, and more. With his beats and a microphone, the former kid prodigy – now lyricist, rapper, and producer – has blazed a burning trail through the underground hip-hop scene.
