The New New: 15 New York Rappers You Should Know
Borough: Manhattan (Harlem)
Notable song: “Get A Job”
Sounds like: Harlem’s reinterpretation of skate rap, decorated with trees and 40s. Sticking to Golden Era spitting guidelines.
Why you need to know him: Yes, 22-year-old Perrion’s a proud son of Harlem, USA. But don’t expect an overly flashy kid with Alpo fantasies. He’s an Altamont-rocking skater at heart that’s psyched about chilling at the Berrics, and has no problem partaking in the humble festivities of puffing greens and sipping Heinekens with the homies. To Perry and his HOME Team clique, life’s full of stories to share, boasts to make, and beats to zone out to. Cut from the Golden Era cloth that once draped the New York City airwaves, though Perry Eats seems like a hybrid of multiple subcultures, he’s in fact a byproduct of the city’s current landscape.
