First of all, a small intro on Percee P:
After all these years in the background, Percee FINALLY releases his debut, and what label would be better for that than Stones Throw Records?
This is also another personal favourite album of mine that dropped in these last weeks, Percee P's flow is legendary (even thought I've heard some complains about he doesn't adjust it to the beats throught the album), his lyrics put a lot of good rappers in shame, and the Madlib production is great as always. A must.

And here's something that I was looking for a while, this is true Hip Hop history, thank god for youtube:
Percee P vs. Lord Finesse Live @ The Patterson Projects, 1989 Pt. 1
Percee P vs. Lord Finesse Live @ The Patterson Projects, 1989 Pt. 2
If you listen to these old battles you'll notice many of the lines were later re-used in a lot of Percee P songs, including songs from Perseverance. But the best part must be the ice cream truck comming over Ahaha.
