Listen to ‘2 Tha Left’ by G Perico

By Donna-Claire Chesman on December 12, 2017

‘2 Tha Left’ is a stride forward for Perico in terms of songwriting, storytelling, and charisma.

G Perico sees his world in All Blue as he made clear on his 2017 debut LP. The LP gave us a vibrant image of the South Central native, with his Jheri curl, bravado, and passion for G-funk. Before the year’s end, Perico returns with yet another, bolder assertion of his identity on 2 Tha Left. Make no mistake, these are not b-sides or a rehashing of classic sounds. 2 Tha Left is a stride forward for Perico in terms of songwriting, storytelling, and if you can believe it, charisma.

2 Tha Left is as political as it is boots-to-the-ground, a filter-less depiction of Perico’s beliefs and the twists and turns of his lifestyle. G Perico’s music excites because it is a promise that authenticity has never, and will never, leave hip-hop. Regional bounds may be dissolving, but G Perico proves that there’s a special magic that comes from sticking to your roots.
