Chicago’s SAVEMONEY is killing it right now! Chance The Rapper will be the first independent artist to perform on Saturday Night Live. Vic Mensa is preparing for his album release, while still performing all over the country. And now, not long after his Leather Corduroys album Season, the Chicago collective’s, rapper Joey Purp, has released a new solo record. Titled ‘Run It Up’, this is one of Joey’s first solo tracks since his 2012 project, The Purple Tape . Although it’s been years since The Purple Tape, his rapping definitely isn’t rusty. Whether he is rapping as 1/2 of Leather Corduroys or by himself, Purp is one of Chicago’s most talented young MCs right now.
