Dudley Perkins – State Of Emergency (prod. Madlib)
One of the true West Coasts pioneers, the fOnk vet from Oxnard came into the game on The Alkoholiks project before creating a slew of classics alongside Madlib, MED, Oh No, Kankick, and DJ Romes. Known for his multitude of styles and cadences, Dudley is one of the most influential emcees from the Golden state. His work in recent years with Georgia Anne Muldrow has gained critical acclaim as well as helped him refine his intergalactic politically conscious message of peace and unity. In addition to emceeing, Dudley runs his own label with Georgia Anne Muldrow (SomeOthaShip Connect), and has worked closely with Mello Music Group for a number of years.
