South Central native G Perico has announced a partnership with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation. He also did a thought-provoking interview with Complex, about current and future rollouts of his projects, his businesses and clothing brand So Way Out, and life growing up in South Central.
This year, G Perico has entered into a partnership with Roc Nation for two joint releases with his label (also called So Way Out). Today marks the release of the first, Ten Eight.
G Perico stays out the way, in Calabases, but owns and operates and smoke shop on 108th and Broadway. Perico’s stomping grounds are close to my childhood home, so it’s good to see the success of a fellow South Central native.

“I named this project Ten Eight because 108th is pretty much the essence of G Perico. What I represent now came from days and nights of being right here, fighting right here. I’ve been shot right here. The police have come in and kicked in doors. This is all during the time that I was trying to become a successful musician, philosopher, entrepreneur, forward-thinker. This is where I did my first project, around the side. We built a studio right here. That’s where I did Tha Innerprize. I was on bail, down the street hustling. There were shootings every day, it was crackin’. This is where the vision came about and we started cultivating it into something,” G-Perico tells Complex.
