#CivilTV: G Perico – Welcome To My Neighborhood
by Lupe LLerenas
Resurrecting the distinctive sounds of early ’90s West Coast G-funk, rapper G Perico connects the streets and the studio with his cinematic storytelling and observations from South Central Los Angeles.
With a delivery similar to DJ Quik, Too $hort, and Eazy-E, Perico started to build a following with 2015’s Tha Innerprize 2. However, he gained much more recognition when he issued his breakthrough mixtape, Shit Don’t Stop.
In 2017, Perico released a trio of efforts, starting with his All Blue mixtape, which he released on his own record label, So Way Out. He then followed the tape with his debut album, 2 Tha Left, featuring his lead single “Everybody” and appearances by Nef the Pharaoh, Mozzy, Curren$y, and frequent collaborator Polyester.
The KarenCivil.com team recently caught up with G Perico to talk about growing up in South Central Los Angeles, his upbringing career, seeing success with label and store, So Way Out, and much more!
