Is there’s a rapper out of Chicago that’s next up to have a break through year, I’d put my money on Joey Purp. As one of the founding members of the Chicago, hip-hop collective The Savemoney Crew, he’s got as good a platform as any from which to drop knowledge and tell his story.

Bolstered by the fun single “Girls”, which features co-Savemoney founder Chance The Rapper, Joey Purp released his second mixtape, “iiiDrops” on May 26th, 2016. Don’t let playful nature of “Girls” fool you though. The mixtape, including that track, is an amazingly “aware” album. His music is real, rooted in the trials and tribulations of life, and his performance is equally fueled by those heavy concerns (bother personal and political) that he writes/raps about. This realness  give his performance a certain gravitas that forces you to pay attention.

Where Warholl.SS had his entire crew on stage, Joey Purp was a man alone on stage. All he needed were his beats and a mic.  His flow and lyrics was all that we, the audience, needed to pay attention.
