Perrion / Press

“PERRION Who: A Harlem-based 21-year-old rapper, whose new mixtape From Paris With Love, produced entirely by French beatmaker Myth Syzer, drops on February 28. With ties to A$AP Rocky and Young Money foot soldier Jae Millz, Perrion pulls you into the same Google-dazed post-chillwave Pandora's box opened by Clams Casino, and then he eloquently convinces you he owns the place.”

“If you ain’t H.O.M.E., you’re homeless. The internet has supplied us with a constant stream of new artists for years. It has given burgeoning MCs a place near side of estabilished acts as a most significant advancement within music, the lines between eminence and priority being blurred and especially over the last three years, a lot of young, talented and independent rappers have emerged from The States and with them an endless amount of proficient producers. If they’re already offering such high quality output at such a young age, the future looks even brighter. The Washington Heights-born, Harlem-raised and Atlanta-based Perry Rodriguez is one of these promising new artists: having mastered both the quality of rapping and production to an aloft level and with three solid mixtapes under his belt as Perrion, calling the wordsmith a novitiate hardly does him any justice.

“Let us first focus on a young emcee named Perrion. With three projects under his belt, the most recent of which just dropped on 11/11/11, Perrion has a casually dense lyrical style that is packed with a youthful New York feel. Peep the video for his joint “Don’t Stop” up top, off his new mixtape Circuit Breaker, which features the young Harlemite going in over familiar Washed Out, Neon Indian, Bibio and Lone beats. He’s even got some guest spots from some of the A$AP crew. And while you’re at it go and download all of his mixtapes here.”

“I had heard a bunch about Perrion before I actually met him, he was that ‘mad good rapper from Harlem’. I finally got to meet him skating and partying on one of the many crazy nights of the LES. I immediately dug his demeanour, this kid is real New York, and unlike many other rappers he has a rare humility and knows to keep the show-boating strictly on the track. His sound definitely pays homage to some of the New York greats, but it also very much identifies with that new school of Hip-Hop which has recently proved to everyone that Hip-Hop is in fact not dead. We caught up with Perrion. (Click To Read Full Interview)”

“New York rapper Perrion has been building up quite a buzz for himself lately. He has recently released some new visuals for his track "Rambling" off his latest mixtape Le Bourgeon. He's currently in the process of working on his upcoming mixtape entitled Circuit Breaker. "Rambling" as well as every other song on Le Bourgeon were produced by Perrion himself, and you can download the mixtape by clicking here.”

“Harlem by way of Atlanta homie Perrion has dropped yet another video from his new album, Le Bourgeon, released last July. And while it doesn’t measure up to the mad dopeness that was his video for “Seamless,” there’s still plenty to like about “Rambling,” the most predominant thing being it’s all-around I-don’t-give-a-fuck tone and piss off attitude. In and of themselves this is standard hip hop fare, but Perrion not only has the rhyme skills to back his braggadocio, he also has a way of making his boasting and verbal jabs sound more playful than angry or embittered. If this cat blows up, don’t say I didn’t warn you. Check the video above and then head here to grab Le Bourgeon for free.”

“Despite the naysayers, 2010 has been an amazing year for both hip hop and rap on the national and global levels. It’s no different here in Atlanta at the local level. I’ve heard some very impressive mixtape debuts from local emcees and Perrion “PCP” Rodriguez’s mixtape Perception is no exception. Perrion is a young emcee (probably no older than 19 or 20), but he has a nice flow and vocal delivery, in addition, his selection of beats is more reflective of a seasoned rapper/songwriter and not a rookie emcee. His sound reminds me of a mix between Pharrell, Curren$y and Wiz Khalifa. What I enjoyed the most about the Perception mixtape is that Perrion attempts to create very direct concepts and themes within his music and does not flow endlessly like many skilled, but ultimately impertinent lyricists.”
