“Paradise” Gray was raised by Legendary DJs in the South Bronx and HighBridge. He was the Producer of the X Clan, whose 1990 album, 'To the East, Blackwards,' was a conscious Hip-Hop classic. Prior to that, he was host and manager of entertainment for the legendary Manhattan nightclub the Latin Quarter. Paradise was a key figure in transforming the landmark club into an historical Hip-Hop venue that became the most important incubator of talent during the Golden Era of Hip-Hop. Daddy-O from Stetsasonic proclaims, “The Latin Quarter was the Studio 54 of Hip-Hop.” “You got accolades for rockin’ the Latin Quarter stage. And for Paradise to even know your name was a huge deal,” remembers MC Lyte.
