Q&A With Perry Porter

(that's him. right there. on the left. the very left. he is not white. on the left.)

So we had a little Q&A with Perry who is, surprisingly, as relaxed as he sounds on tape.
Here is the full, unedited Q&A:

1.First off, tells us a bit about yourself and your musical beginnings.


I’m actually pretty shy, lol. Listening to my music or watching video you wouldn’t think so, but I’m shy as fxxxcckkkk, hahaha. I even get nervous when ppl ask me to rap for them on spot, lol, like you really want me to? word? *Turns purple LOL. I started rapping around the age of 16, even though I wanted to be a Hot Boy when I was 12, hahahaha!! I’ve always been around music, man. My father was deejay while my older brother still raps to this day. Things like that made rapping look cool as shxt. I wanted to be them as a kid; I was just too shy to do it. And, my mother tried her hardest to shelter me when it came to hip hop, she hated it, lol. That keep things under wraps until I met a local by the name of Stymie, and he got everything rolling for me.


2. How did this particular album come to be? What were your ideas behind it?


It was something I always wanted to do, just didn’t have the skill and mindset for it, lol. Paper Moon is more for my 18year old self and the way I view life back then. The ideas and the way I went about it was supposed to sound like an 18year old me. I wanted this to be my “Immature album” the album I always wanted to make, but didn’t. I’m kinda letting the fans play caught up with my life, lol. You know? G shxt.


3. The sample selection is great, what do you have to say on the overall production of the album?


ICBM is the equitant of Rick James and the beats are like…. That white couch. That fool… just… double penetrated the beats, hahaha!!


4. What's the main message you are trying to get across with Paper Moon?


It’s the introduction to me, the start of it all. I wanted to introduce the fxck up, who contradicts himself time and time again, but really wants to make a change in this world somehow and someway.


5. How often do you and your crew work together?


Man, I see CARLisDEAD three to four times a year, haha. But, we’re always working on music via emails, txt and fb. We got a few albums in the works right now. We’re just waiting for the right time to release them.


6. How do you feel you guys stand in the game, or if you even care about that at all?


I really don’t know. Between the two of us, and handful of in-house producers, we have a lot of style and sounds. Trying to find where we stand gets complicated, so we just tend to just do us, which doesn’t go in our favor most of the time, hahaha.


"That fool… just… double penetrated the beats, hahaha!!". Yeah.

That should be the best. I would vote for it so it can be included on the top list.

Well I looked for a 'contact us' link but couldn't find one so I guess I'll just leave this here. I , like yourselves, am a music enthusiast. I'd like to occasionally (or maybe more often than that) contribute to your site. I just found the site today and can already see we have a lot of the same tastes.
Here is my first contribution - Sean Nicholas Savage - 'Flamingo' (2011). Sugary sweet 80's styled psychedelic pop (and some 60's folk) that sounds like it was ripped off a vhs tape (this is a good thing :)). Highlights: Chin Chin, You Changed Me, Catch the Quick Fish, Spotted Brown.
