Savemoney Emcee Joey Purp is Working on Two New Projects

The Chicago emcee is gearing up to release his first project since last year's well-received 'iiiDrops'.

After turning heads in 2016 with the release of iiiDrops, an 11-track mixtape that included twoholy shit-worthy selections and guest appearances by Chance The Rapper, Mick Jenkins, Saba and Vic Mensa, Chicago emcee Joey Purp is gearing up to release his next projects.

Yes, projects, as in plural.

According to the Savemoney member, the first project (not an "album") is entitled Quarter Thing and will serve as a predecessor to another, larger, currently-untitled body of work (an "album").
