Paul spent several months in nyc ‘s West Harlem in 1984 where hip-hop was the most well-known sound in the region. Paul also began breaking into the mainstream while he was working as an A&R man for Champion Records. Paul signed DJ Dazzy Jeff as well as the Fresh Prince along with Salt-n-Pepa. Paul appeared around the Blue Peter BBC program for kids using a breakdancing crew. Paul then became a promoter and British agent for the Beastie Boys and Run-D.M.C.
