Peedi Peedi is a member of the group State Property, and is signed as a solo artist to Rocafella Records. His debut solo album, "Prince of the Roc," is due later this year.
In our interview, Peedi talks about growing up with hip-hop, not rapping publicly until age 17, and his current state of malaise. He also talks about his relationship with fellow Philly MC Freeway -- when the two met, Freeway as dressed as a ninja, doing ninja moves. (Obviously, they became fast friends.)
