Event Details“My main goal is for my music to outlive my physical,” proclaims Los Angeles Rap mainstay G Perico. While the veteran artist plans to be here for a long time, he makes his art and influence to be everlasting. “I aspire to be in museums, documentaries, and conversations for years to come,” he says. “I want to influence a generation or a genre within the culture.” In recent years, G Perico rebranded himself as an independent powerhouse after years in the old-guard music industry. He continues to build on that foundation through an onslaught of releases on his EMPIRE-distributed Innerprize label and top clothing brand, Blue T-Shirt. Late 2022’s SOUTH CENTRAL deals with a place that molded G Perico, and now he hopes to inspire for the better. Long before his latest album, G Perico represented South Central. His music drips with an authenticity reflective of LA’s gangland. “For most of my life, I met adversity with force,” he shares, building a reputation as someone who refused to back down. That attitude came with consequences—surviving shootings and jail stints. “I’ve realized that I’m not gonna get to $100 million meeting with people with force,” he reflects. “I’m going to a whole other place in the world.” In addition to his music career, Perico has invested in real estate and focused on philanthropy. “I spent a lot of money on my hood trying to do something great for the area.” Efforts include the Broadway boxing gym he owns with label-mate D Smoke and G’s 108th Building, which will house a Boys & Girls Club, coffee shop, and more. “The city is behind us,” reveals one of the area’s leaders, whose life shows growth and change. The transformation follows more than a decade of grinding. “I found music by chance when I came home from my first bid,” G notes. After releasing a few handfuls of songs, 2016’s Sh*t Don’t Stop, and its title track caught fire. The entertainment industry took notice. NBA-star-turned-exec Baron Davis brought G to events, while Nipsey Hussle featured Perico on Slauson Boy II. By 2019, he inked a partnership with Roc Nation. Collaborations with Freddie Gibbs, Curren$y, and Mozzy streamed into the millions. The gangsta rapper with the Jheri curl and lowriders honored vintage West Coast traditions while contributing something new. However, atop the 2020s, G took control of his career. Going completely independent, he launched Innerprize and signed a distro deal with EMPIRE. Perico also built his now-thriving streetwear company BLUE T-Shirt. The company launched in G’s kitchen has reached an audience that may extend well past Perico’s growing music base. “I’m really proud of myself, learning to mature and maneuver,” he reflects. “It’s showing in the music and in business.” SOUTH CENTRAL follows 2022’s Tango and LA SUMMERS2. The artist who independently released 11 albums has enhanced his product. “I got a few new rhyme patterns and tones,” he admits, seamlessly switching from smooth to aggressive. “It all sounds good and in-pocket.” That music connected on the road, as Perico nearly sold out every stop of his Mind Of The Innerprize Tour. He says, “I legit got lines around the block that know the lyrics word for word.” In 2023, G Perico will continue to elevate. On March 3, he and DJ Drama team for a Gangsta Grillz mixtape, Hot Shots, and a corresponding tour. That project is slated to include some exciting features. Soon, the cinematic lyricist will also bring a movie and series loosely based on his life to the screen. He touts, “I’m refocused and on a mission.”
