Raised in the home of EPMD, Rakim, Keith murray and more legends, Peter Leo has made huge strides in the Long Island music scene. PL has devoted the last 15 years of his life to perfecting his original Style & Sound that has propelled him to become one of the most professionally sought after and recognizable upcoming Hip-hop musicians on the East coast. His aura immediately commands your attention and respect. A gifted emcee and soulful singer, P.L. has performed at venues throughout the tri-state area for years, receiving positive reviews from industry insiders and label A&R’s alike.
A forte for freestyle, written verses, and chorus craftsmanship, he is the complete package for fans of orginal, creative musicianship. His style is a blend of rugged East Coast delivery with flair and harmonious flow, often lending from Latino inspired rhythms that vibe off of live instrumentation.Growing up on golden era rap like Nas, A Tribe Called Quest & Wu-Tang Clan, Typ draws his inspiration from some of the best lyricists to do it. That’s not to say he doesn’t also find inspiration from the west coast mcs he discovered during his Los Angeles years. His flow can only be described as “no-coast” as he effortlessly flips from rugged east coast to smooth west coast to double time deep south.
No matter the coast, one thing is certain: When you hear Typs voice pierce through your speakers you can hear years of life experience attached to them. From talking about the people from his youth, to opening up about relationships, to dealing with post traumatic stress disorder from 2 tours in Iraq, Typs rhymes are an extremely deep representation of who he is. You don’t need to know him to know who he is. It’s right there in his lines for all to see.
