G Perico – “Amerikkka”

LA rap upstart G Perico cracked our recent 40 Best New Bands list, and he’s back today with a new single called “Amerikkka.” As you’ve probably discerned from the Ice Cube-referencing title, the track derives its style from the same classic ’90s gangster rap sound that informed Perico’s excellent debut album All Blue while veering more explicitly (in both senses) into social and political commentary. The hook: “I’m like, ‘Fuck a cop, fuck police’/ When you’re black, don’t trust police/ Them motherfuckers might kill/ Been like that from the beginning.” Listen below.
