G Perico Drives the 5 Freeway: Rapper G Perico released a new single and video called “5 Freeway” in the summer, the latest in a long line of impresses drops from the L.A. artist.

According to the press release: “With visuals directed by Edgar “Macksimo” Medina, the video’s 3 minutes see G Perico evading a targeted investigation before eventually coming face to face with his past in a twist of fate. The new track follows the single ‘Spazz,’ released earlier this month, and G Perico‘s July project LA Summers. G Perico also released a pair of early summer singles in ‘Out The House’ and ‘I’m In Traffic.'”

Almost exactly two years ago, writer Shirley Ju spoke to G Perico for LA Weekly and he told her: “Reality usually don’t set in till afterwards. When you’re in the action, it is what it is. Gangbanging, hustling, pimping, everything else going on around there besides being a bum. All the activities that make you a ghetto superstar. I was there, present and involved. I got a strike for that shit too, this is all public record. I have no secrets.”

Hear his honest portrayals of life on the streets at the El Rey on Saturday.

G Perico Drives the 5 Freeway: The event takes place at 9 p.m. on Saturday, November 27 at the El Rey Theatre.

G Perico press bio:

“‘My whole attitude is like a new artist. I need to reestablish and reintroduce myself,’ admits South Central mainstay G Perico. After a five-year run including a major deal and handfuls of million-streaming songs, Perico is recharged and reset. He is now focused on building his Innerprize label and expanding top clothing brand, Blue T-Shirt, along with his prolific art. ‘I’m having fun with it; I love making music again,’ says the rapper who has heated up 2021 with a string of catchy singles ahead of LA Summer and his upcoming August EMPIRE-backed album, Play 2 Win. Titled after a tattoo G has had for years, he refuses to settle for less than victory.”
