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. He presented this style on a steady stream of mixtapes, moving from early work like 2016's Shit Don't Stop to more fully realized releases such as 2021's Play 2 Win album or 2022's 111th East EP.
Born Jeremy Nash, Perico was involved in gang life from a young age. His first tapes were even issued while he was in jail. With a delivery similar to DJ Quik, Too $hort, and Eazy-E, Perico started to build a following with 2015's Tha Innerprize 2. The next year, he issued his breakthrough mixtape, Shit Don't Stop. In 2017, he released a trio of efforts, starting with his All Blue mixtape -- a reference to his affiliation with the Crips -- which he issued on his own indie label, So Way Out. He followed with a notable collaborative album that found him joining forces with Bloods-affiliated Jay Worthy and producer Cardo as G-Worthy. Before the end of the year, Perico released 2 Tha Left, featuring the single "Everybody" and appearances by Nef the Pharaoh, Mozzy, Curren$y, and frequent collaborator Polyester. 2018 brought the single "Colors" with Freddie Gibbs and Mozzy, followed by the Guess What? EP.
In 2019, Perico announced a partnership deal between Roc Nation and his label So Way Out. The first of two planned joint releases, Ten Eight, was issued in August of that year. The full-length album included the single "Big Raccs" and featured Sonny Digital, AzChike, and Bucho. Perico continued to steadily release new projects and singles (both on his own and in collaboration with other rappers) as the next few years went on. 2021 alone saw him releasing multiple mixtapes like No Love in LA, Free, and Welcome to the Land, as well as the more fleshed-out Play 2 Win. The latter release included multiple contributions from 03 Greedo, as well as appearances from BlueBucksClan and others. 2022 was no different, with the rapper releasing a steady drip of singles, a collaborative EP with Gotdamnitdupri entitled Tango, and a short solo EP called 111th East.
