NEW MUSIC VIDEO – “Girls @” by: Joey Purp featuring Chance the Rapper

“Are you trying to wear that black dress to my address? I got a bed, no frame, just a mattress.”


Joey Purp is a Chicago rapper from the Savemoney crew (which includes Chance the Rapper, Vic Mensa, Towkio, and a host of other artists). Purp released his breakout project, iiiDrops, in May of 2016 and received much acclaim for the project.

“Girls @” is the first single off iiiDrops, it is a feel-good song —  different sound from everything else on iiiDrops — and the video matches the vibe of the track. Joey, Chance, and friends seem to have had a great time shooting this video. I guess when Joey and Chance were asking “where the girls at?”, the question got answered because they have a large/diverse group of women in this video.

If you aren’t familiar with Joey Purp, I wouldn’t judge him off of this track.Even though I enjoy “Girls @”, it doesn’t showcase Purp’s talent. I believe Purp is the most lyrical rapper in the Savemoney crew, and that will become apparent if you listen to iiiDrops.


Lollapalooza’s 2016 lineup has been announced; Hip-Hop will be well-represented

Rumors were spreading about J. Cole, LCD Soundsystem, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Radiohead being at the 25th anniversary of Lollapalooza. Just seeing those names confirmed was enough motivation to get anyone to come to the Chicago festival but this lineup is completely stacked from top to bottom!

I cannot remember being this excited for Lollapalooza — as a hip-hop fan. Look at some of the great hip-hop acts Lollapalooza has lined up: J. Cole, Future, Bryson Tiller, Vic Mensa, Mac Miller, Vince Staples, ASAP Ferg, Dreamville (Bas, Cozz, and Omen), Jazz Cartier, Saba, Smino, and Towkio.


Day two is a must-go for me — Radiohead, ASAP Ferg, Mac Miller, and Saba. Day one is J. Cole, Bas, Cozz, Omen, Danny Brown, and Jazz Cartier.

Who am I kidding? All three days are going to be eventful and that’s where the negative comes in, Lollpalooza is very expensive — $120 for a one-day ticket. Tickets are on sale this morning (March 23, 2016) at 10am.
