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").
How EKKSTACY Beat Writer’s Block to Make His Best Album
Pop anti-hero EKKSTACY finds his aggressive voice on his new album, 'misery.' He breaks down his journey through writer's block for Audiomack World.
Knox Fortune, who produced six tracks on iiiDrops, including "Girls @" and "Money & Bitches," is one of several producers working with Purp on the first release.
There is currently no set release date for either Quarter Thing or the album that will follow, but in the meantime, we recommend listening to Joey's recent appearance on A-Trak's remix of Phantogram's "You Don’t Get Me High Anymore."
