New rappers pop up like weeds every year in the music industry. With one or two good tracks, half a verse, and one-quarter of a hook, these “reality show” rap stars get a record deal. You hear from them for about a year and then the industry trades them in for the next reality show rap-cast. They don’t have the lyrical substance, talent, or roots for a career in the music industry. Emcee’s with the lyrical ability to deliver a project with ten or more good tracks are rare… to say the least.
The industry needs emcee’s with substance. Sammy “P” blends his Hyphy style with real-life lyrics and unpredictable rhyme patterns. Unlike much of the competition, Sammy “P” uses a realistic, and street savvy set of rhymes to tell stories of the day-to-day struggle. With tracks like “Family”, Sammy “P” stays true to his loved ones, close and distant, and the track “Homeboys” is the new anthem for all the homies worldwide. The rich substance is delivered with a down to earth and universal intellect that anyone can relate to making Sammy “P” appealing to people from all corners of life.
Not only does an emcee need to be an exceptional lyricist to appeal to the masses, but an emcee must be a talented showman. Sammy “P” has a pimp swagger and a Hyphy mentality. He demands attention on the mic and the passion put into every rhyme is evident with every line he spits. From rapping at parties for breezy’s back in the day, to blazin’ shows in the Northwest, Sammy “P” keeps the attention of every ear he grabs.
Sammy “P” takes you back to the roots of Hip-Hop. Born in Oakland, CA February 28th 1982, he is as comfortable spitting over a West Coast gem as he is dropping a verse on the next Down South or East Coast classic. With roots in Hip-hop since he was a baby, Sammy “P” has been a student of Hip-hop culture his entire life. Through the struggles and madness of life, Sammy “P” has always found a place to keep his mind right with Hip-hop music and has been living it, and repping it to the fullest since he was old enough to talk.
“Straight out of the womb it has been a war against myself. The ups and downs, the highs and lows, the good and the bad. Laced with game at an early age I was taught and sprinkled by pimps, playa’s, prostitutes and gangsta’s. It prepared me for the world; and for the life ahead of me. Life hasn’t been all that bad, but I can remember times when it defiantly wasn’t all good. Just like anyone else . . . It’s all a struggle. Trial and error! Regardless… I’m a “Rida”. I stick my chest out, hold my head up, soak up the pain, and come back with fire… Thats just the way I was made to be! If it wasn’t for the things I have been through and the pain and sorrow I have felt I would never be the person I am today… I wouldn’t trade that pain for anything. I love my life and I love who I am. Rappin’ is my outlet! When I’m at rock bottom, I write raps and let it all out. It’s my “GOD” given talent! It’s the one thing that nobody can take away from me. With that said… that’s a little about me in a nutshell! 1-LUV SAMMY”P”
