G Perico is a 30 year old rapper from Los Angeles, California who blew up last year with the release of his debut album & his sophomore album respectively: All Blue & 2 tha Left. He’s been quiet since then, but he’s returning out of the blue (no pun intended) with his 1st EP.
After a spoken word intro, we go into the first song “Mo Power”. Here, Perico gets braggadocious over a vintage g-funk instrumental. The track “All Nighter” is filled with street bars over a piano key & a heavy bass-line while the song “Wit the Gangstas” talks about hanging out with Crips over a hyphy beat with wailing synthesizers. The song “Play Wit It” talks about fame, but the trap beat is decent & the 2 features are redundant to me. The penultimate track “What You Thinkin’?” sees Perico talking to this woman over a trap beat with G-funk synthesizers & then the closer “How U Want It?” is a club banger with a gritty ass beat.
Overall, this was just as good as the last 2 albums. Most of the songs are less than 3 minutes long, but G Perico continues to be the modern day DJ Quik by updating the vintage West Coast sound for a 2018 audience.
