Percee P - Whisky Bar - August 25, 2007

From the one who lives in a glass house department... Percee P @ Whisky Bar tomorrow night, Aug 25th. Percee P comes out with his debut album Perseverance on Sept 18. released with Stones Throw. Also at Whisky Bar will be DJ Rhettmatic and DJ Chicken George.

More info:

Percee P (born John Percy Simon in 1971) is an underground hip-hop artist from the Patterson Projects in The Bronx, New York City, United States. Although he has never released an official album of his own, he is known in the underground for selling his mixtapes himself at shows and for his many guest appearances on other alternative and underground hip-hop artists' releases. He has worked with such rappers as Big Daddy Kane, Kool Keith, Lord Finesse, Aesop Rock, Edan the Deejay, Jurassic 5, C-Rayz Walz, Jaylib, Jedi Mind Tricks, Maestro Fresh Wes, Wildchild, and many more.

Percee P's debut album Perseverance will be released by Stones Throw Records on September 18, 2007, and is to be produced entirely by Madlib.

Percee P has been emceeing since 1979 and is considered one of the few old skool rappers still in the game.

Percee's voice is sampled on DJ Shadow's song "Napalm Brain/Scatter Brain" from the album Endtroducing......

His legendary battle with Lord Finesse from 1989 was immortalized on Edan the Deejay's Fast Rap mixtape, and a complete video of it has since surfaced as a bonus feature on the SBX DVD.

He is something of a legend in the underground scene due to his ubiquitous presence, yet complete determination to stay hardcore underground.
