PR: A.Dd+'s "When Pigs Fly" in XXL Magazine

A.Dd+'s, When Pigs Fly, earned a spot in the "Chairman's Choice" section of the May issue of XXL magazine (with Lupe Fiasco on the cover). Shout out to Chairman Mao. From the magazine:
Dallas, Texas duo A.Dd+ (pronounced "A-D-D," silent "+") triumph with a much delayed project of their own. When Pigs Fly was scheduled for release last year, before the crew went back to the lab with producer Picnic Tyme to rework some material. The resulting fat-free platter strikes an impressive creative balance between Third Coast bravado (the nasty single "Likeamug," the bass-heavy anthems "Smell My Cologne" and "Southbound") and self-deprecating quirkiness (the self-explanatory "Greedy," the dour booze fest "Erica & Jamie"). In theory, A.Dd+'s stylistic dichotomy can be traced to the distinct personas of members Slim Gravy (gruff, brash) and Paris Pershun (artsy, thoughtful) – that is, until you listen and realize that they're less distinct than they are complimentary pieces essential to a greater whole. As P announces on "The Rapper & the Poet," "Our melodic notes make everybody jump for hope/And haters look at us different because we don't take the same approach." Super-duper Fly.
