Joey Purp is making sure his name stays afloat on the web, since the release of his project iiiDrops towards the end of April. We caught up with the Chicago rapper for an interview following the mixtape's release, and he's appeared on a song with Save Money brethren Towkio, not to mention, he's headed on tour with another Save Money squad member, Vic Mensa, for their "Back With A Vengeance" tour.
In case there wasn't already enough incentive to catch Joey live, the rapper pops up today alongside producer Thelonious Martin for an Adult Swim series single, "Bomaye." You can get a free download of the song over at Adult Swim's website.
Thelonious builds up a rich sound with swooping string arrangements and drums to pair with Joey's strained flow, but rather unexpectedly, the record transitions halfway through to a more grimey, hard-hitting sound. Take a listen.
Steady buying crosses, tryna keep the reapers off us
As if diamonds could keep theM demons off us
Cold world, but that block is scorching
And we still bending corners
Crack the windows and smell the weed aroma
They sold us crack and made us sell it for 'em
We sold it back and then they jealous for it
We hit them windows while you sleepin on us
Cold world, but we got heaters on us
