Though disturbing homicide rates in Southside Chicago and elsewhere have made urban gun crime a hot topic in the American media, you’ll rarely hear mainstream pundits put the issue in its proper social context. On his latest single, Drillin, NYC buzzmaker Perrion reminds listeners that unemployment, economic desperation, institutional racism, police brutality and the War on Drugs all play key roles in creating and sustaining the violence that ravages inner-city communities. Beatsmith MythSyzer backs the artist’s insightful bars with a slowed-down sample from Moby’s Porcelain, and W. Suárez directs the official video, featuring topical footage from local news broadcasts. Fans can find this thought-provoking jam and much more on Perrion’s DJBooth-hosted From Perry With Love tape, available for streaming and download as of September.
