Search By Tag: March 12th

Yeah, it’s been a rocky one for hip-hop lovers this year, lots of big names and affiliated noise, but little on the bone for those more attuned to solid lyricism. Cue the return of Chicago’s Joey Purp, who returns n good humor and wonderful form for ‘March 12th.’ There have been comparisons from various critics to that of early Kanye, and that resonates true in the conscious yet traditional approach he takes. There’s no word of a follow-up to that sacred iiiDrops mixtape, but we sure as hell hope this latest single is a sign of more frequent releases from the all-important Chicago rapper.
