To close out summer, G Perico delivered a new full-length project known as Ten Eight. Now, the West Coast lyricist is following up that LP by serving up a new single titled “Billie Jean.” G Perico’s first major release since the debut of Ten Eight, “Billie Jean” pairs his tightly-knit bars with Wiz Khalifa’s flows.

“Being a student of the game, I notice that a lot about the greatest artists — they not dropping the same project over and over again,” G Perico recently shared with us, opening up about his motivations for an exchange centered around his newly-released Ten Eight documentary. “I think that’s what makes a great artist, and that’s why I would call myself progressive. We’re moving forward; how can we be a better version of ourselves without leaving out the essence and the people still connecting. That’s what make a great artist to me.”

“If you inspire enough people and you do some dope shit to make people want to step their shit up or grow, you’re a legend,” G Perico adds. “This is actual art that people are going to talk about forever if you do it right. If I do some legendary shit, that means I’ma stay paid. If you just do the “what’s hot” shit, he’s gonna get paid for a year or two, then it’s gonna be over … I definitely don’t want that on my name; I want to inspire loads of people for years to come. 35 years from now, I want people to still hold on to my words and thought process. Being legendary, in this game, is more important than money.”
