Q: What is the story behind the name Perch?
A: Glad this was asked. Actually ever since a kid I sat like a bird, perched up. Whether it was eating cereal sitting at the table. On my lovely gramma's gas heater. Or in class trying not to fall asleep. I was always sitting like a bird. And after I had already picked up on rap music. And had dawned the name K.M.C. killa man cam and another name Camo Boss.
