G Perico is coming for the West Coast crown. A G-funk genius for the new millennium, Perico is snatching the Southland’s top spot with slick rhymes, catchy hooks, and knocking beats. Born and raised amidst Los Angeles’ notorious gang culture, G Perico picked up music as a way to stay out of trouble after a couple of jail bids, and hasn’t stopped going hard since — dropping three full projects in 2017, including the masterful 2 Tha Left, released this past December. Now, G is selling out shows across the country, signing record deals, and palling around with celebs, but that still doesn’t mean you’ll catch him outside without his signature Jheri curl or blue flag.

On the latest episode of GGN, G Perico joins Uncle Snoop in the studio to share stories from their kindred past and soak up game from the OG. The duo breaks down what it’s like to grow up inside of LA’s notorious gang scene, why Jheri curls are so important to the culture, and what it feels like to sell out shows from New York City to Sunset Boulevard.

So grab your popcorn, fire up your favorite strain, and grab a seat alongside the Doggfather for a conversation with one of the Southland’s next to blow. And for more G Perico, be sure to download his latest album, 2 Tha Left, and keep your ear to the ground for more new tracks dropping this year.
