Lyrically potent, exceptionally dynamic, fresh, and forthright – P.T.P aka Peter the Poet is a New York City-raised, Asheville-based emcee on the rise.
Known for his intensely crafted flows, soulful singing voice, and intrepid stage presence – P.T.P is blazing his own trail. Championing complex, poetic lyricism and musicality in Hip-Hop – P.T.P’s music orbits a precisely woven emotional core of celebrations of self, anxious rumination, and social critique. His distinct musical style bridges the gap between poets, songwriters, Trap-heads, and Hip-Hop purists – earning him comparisons to legends such as Andre 3000, Aesop Rock, and Deltron 3030.
His music has been featured internationally on both American and European Hip-Hop blogs – most notably on Upcoming Hip-Hop, OK-Tho, WeLoveThat, & GRNDGD – as well as spotlighted by local/regional outlets Asheville Grit, Mountain Xpress, DOPECAUSEWESAID, and 103.3 Asheville FM.
Always developing, always grinding, always pushing the craft forward – P.T.P creates Honest Art-Rap and Progressive Hip-Hop that encourages a pensive mind, a fine lyrical comb, and an indomitable spirit.
