Motor City Cribs

Freddie Beauregard (aka Paradime) wears many hats. Largely known as an emcee in the D, Paradime just dropped his fourth album, Spill at Will, on his Beats at Will label. Outside of the 313, most know dude as Kid Rock’s DJ and occasional co-songwriter. And at his home in Redford, he has many, many hats. And shoes. In fact, one whole room in his crib is a makeshift walk-in hat and shoe closet full of vintage kicks and, maybe, every Detroit Tigers or J Dilla baseball cap ever made.

Paradime purchased this cozy Redford bungalow four years ago after renting apartments all over the Detroit area. He’s got a studio downstairs with a bar conveniently close by. His 5-year-old pit bull Brew has the run of the house.

When Uncle Kracker caught wind of Paradime getting into MT’s Motor City Cribs, he graciously offered up his palatial home as a possible location. Paradime passed — “I don’t want people to think I’m that rich. I’ll never get a raise.”
