PAUL C'S FINGERPRINTS ARE ON THESE ALBUMS
When in 1988 Ed Lover, Doctor Dre, under director Ted Demme, started Yo! MTV Raps. It was the time that Hip Hop started to have a face and a platform to show itself to the world. Due to the sudden death July 17, 1989, Paul C did not see most of the videos of music he worked on. But those videos do show the testament of the work he left behind. Paul did see the videos from Ultramagnetic and Super Lover Cee + Casannova Rud, and we have hear that he was super proud of that. This page has a collection of music and music videos of Paul C work. Enjoy.
Album: Let The Rhythm Hit’em / Released: June 19, 1990 / Label: MCA Records
IN THE GHETTO
When Rakim did an interview with Jeff “Chairman” Moa, he explained the state of mind he was in after the passing of his dad. and how Paul reached out to Rakim to work together on tracks. “In The Ghetto” was one of the first track they started with.
LET THE RHYTHM HIT'EM
Paul worked with together with Kid Flash. Paul worked on a track that he was really proud of called “Mind Your Business”. As the record did not reach success, Paul decided the record was too good too leave behind, so he remixed it and added a bass line, which became the title track to the third album of Eric B & Rakim.
Album: All Hail The Queen / Released: November 7, 1989 / Label: Tommy Boy Records
We know that Paul worked on two tracks “Ladies First” and “A King And Queen Creation” The first tittle featured the english born rapper Monie Love. As the second release of the album Queen Latifah directly became a name to reckon with it. All Hail the Queen!
Album: The Biz Never Sleep / Released: October 10, 1989 / Label: Cold Chillin’ Records
JUST A FRIEND
The beautiful story told to us, about hearing the piano being chopped up and the drums being tuned. Then hearing Biz Markie starting to sing the hook. Paul unfortunately did not witness this track becoming a hit.
IT'S SPRING AGAIN
Biz Markie’s second single made him a real house hold name, and took hip hop to a completly new place. Biz’s way of expressing was very unusual for that time period. Which made him unique and stand out, and above.
Album: Critical Beatdown / Released: October 4, 1988 / Label: Next Plateau Records
This was the tipping point for Paul his career. He and Ultra worked together on this album for 6 months, and you can hear that there was a lot of care put into this album. Perfectly balanced song collection and the mix gives a great all over feeling. This is album is a CLASSIC!!
TRAVELING AT THE SPEED OF THOUGHT
When Paul did the remix for this track, it was funny how he afterwards got asked to work with Keith Richards on his first solo album. Funny, cause the drums on this track come from a Rolling Stones song “Honky Tonky Woman”. It was also the only video from this album.
Album: Crazy Noice / Released: April 24, 1989 / Label: Sleeping Bag – Fresh Records

Album: The Boy Genius / Released: January 31, 1989 / Label: Next Plateau Records
Even though on the album itself there is no mention at all revering to Paul, in a interview with Large Professor, Kwamé said he worked in the studio with Paul, who also mix the tracks for him.
THE MAN WE ALL KNOW AND LOVE
Which makes this album an hidden gem, put into a different light. Kwamé at the time of this album still at the young age of 15 years old. created a style and feel like a hiphop Morris Day. It was slick and funny, but still kept that hiphop vibe up high.
