Last year West Coast rapper G Perico threw out ‘Shit Don’t Stop’ as a mixtape and this year it gets the LP treatment via Omerta. It is an unstoppable record and its best asset is Perico’s massive stamina -- he moves through these tracks like they could be one long take with the beats mixing and mingling devolving over a listless flow, the push through from tracks going almost unnoticed. A record as intensely serious as it is fucking entertaining, Perico moves things along with a calm amidst the storm that’s impossible not to get lost in.
Some of these tracks are calibrated so well I wanna do a standing ovation right in front of this corner-isolated office desk, like “South Central”, which flares up on a hard beat and rolls into an immense hook and a massive gang chant. “Neva Die” has a sparkling staccato synthline that perfectly bleats along next to him, which comes across again in the short bass slaps that open “Hah”. It’s a massive blessing to have production behind you that can pretty much constantly involve its listener, making switches up on everything but pace to keep Perico at a constant level that suits him. Really, really good, if you can keep up with it.
