John Percy Simon a.k.a. Percee P

Born: July 9, 1969 in The Bronx, New York City, New York, U.S.

“Percee P's the man to praise - for day's after a phrase is said I'll leave your head phased”

 “Percee P is one of the most important rappers to never get his due. His style has been cited as a major influence on the likes of Pharoahe Monch (that’s him on the ‘Lung Collapsing Lyrics’ intro) and basically all of DITC (via Lord Finesse, who he battled in ’89). He’s cut records with everyone from Kane & Kool Keith to Aesop Rock & Jurassic 5 and outshined just about all of them. That’s his voice on DJ Shadow’s ‘Napalm Brain, Scatter Brain’. I could go on… In short, aside from Big Daddy Kane, he’s the illest quote unquote fast rapper to ever touch the mic. But because he’s only recorded about 18 verses in as many years, not a lot of heads know what’s up.”
