After more than 25 years of moving through hip-hop's shadows, Percee P
has finally released his full-length solo debut, Perseverance
. Produced entirely by sound-scientist Madlib, the disc boasts verses by Aesop Rock, Jurassic 5's Chali 2na, and Jedi Mind Tricks' Vinnie Paz. If his aerobic freestyles aren't enough to get you out to the show, stop in to pick up a copy of his unofficial anthology, Legendary Status
, which collects the high points from his epic career, including "Let the Homicides Begin" and "Lung Collapsing Lyrics." At set's end, you'll both be breathless.
