Percee P/Stones Throw
So I heard from Chris last night. That little punk just called to rub it in and tell me he was going to a Stones Throw party at SXSW with performances from the whole slew of the label's artists: Madvillain, Peanut Butter Wolf, Percee P, J Rocc, Dudley Perkins and so on.
Man, if I didn't like the guy so much I might think of ways to sabotage his blog while I'm keeping watch (Hmmmmmm .... ). Instead, I figured I'd spread some Stones Throw love your way in honor.
More specifically, I've been listening to the Percee P compilation Legendary Status of late. You might have heard Percee on the Jurassic 5 cut A Day at the Races off the album Power in Numbers. But the Rhyme Inspector has been around and his rhyme flow is absurdly tight. The best MC you've never heard? Maybe. Check it.
(In gratuitous linking, I've got Jose Gonzalez's performance from SXSW on KEXP up at my place. Word.)
