New video mix for Percee P out of the Stone's Throw camp. This one for "Put It On the Line (BX Remix)."
From Cocaine Blunts:
Percee P is one of the most important rappers to never get his due. His style has been cited as a major influence on the likes of Pharoahe Monch (that’s him on the “Lung Collapsing Lyrics” intro) and basically all of DITC (via Lord Finesse, who he battled in ‘89, but that’ll be another update, or you could just cop that Edan “Fast Rap” mixtape). He’s cut records with everyone from Kane & Kool Keith to Aesop Rock & Jurassic 5 and outshined just about all of them. That’s his voice on DJ Shadow’s “Napalm Brain, Scatter Brain”. I could go on… In short, aside from Big Daddy Kane, he’s the illest quote unquote fast rapper to ever touch the mic. But because he’s only recorded about 18 verses in as many years, not a lot of heads know what’s up. (Although I guess that’s as much his fault as it is the industry’s).Percee was most recently featured on the Chrome Children CD & DVD. He is currently working on an album to be released on Stone's Throw tenatively titled "Perseverance".
Up until recently (still? I don’t know), you could find him pushing his home recorded maxell compilation tape outside Fat Beats NYC. It was kind of sad, to be honest. Especially when you’d be like “I know… you’re the rhyme inspector percee p, one of the dopest rappers of all time” and he’d just be like “yeah, see i’m in the source”. But you can’t knock his hustle.
