Biography

Paperboy (born Mitchell Johnson in Oakland, California) is a 1990s rapper best known for single Ditty, which sampled Zapp’s R&B classic Doo Wa Ditty (Blow That Thing) and became a hit after being remixed by DJ/Producer Ben Liebrand. In 1993 he released the album The Nine Yards which contained 10 tracks, including the platinum certified single Ditty. Rhythm D produced The Nine Yards which was certified gold by the RIAA on June 22, 1993. The single Ditty was certified platinum on May 11, 1993.

Paperboy’s album The Nine Yards was followed by two additional albums City to City and The Love Never Dies. City to City, an 18 track album, was released in 1996 under the rap label Next Plateau and spawned the hit “P’s Cure”.
Paperboy’s 2004 release titled The Love Never Dies was released under the label Thump Records. Rhythm D is back once again along with Big Keys as the noted producers. This album marked a change in the rappers traditional style through his utilization of artists and producers from other areas in his home state of California and also seeking talent in other areas of the United States. The first track titled California bears the sound of a classic West Coast style track and features the artist Battlecat, a fellow California artist. Rhythm D’s presence is felt heavily throughout the album with his unique producing talents.
