On Friday, September 23rd, Joey Purp will take over Chicago’s Chop Shop venue as part of Consequence of Sound’s latest Red Bull Sound Select show. The Chi-Town native and Savemoney crew member has earned his place under the bright lights following high-profile collaborations with Chance the Rapper and Vic Mensa and two solid mixtapes in 2012’s The Purple Tape and this year’s iiiDrops.
Ahead of his sure to be showstopping set, we’ve put together a short collection of must-hear songs from Purp’s catalog. “Girls @” and “Cornerstore” are standouts off his freshest tape, while “Playin’ Fair” is a team-up with local rapper Towkio. Meanwhile, “Still Got It” and “773 Freestyle” see him link up with Vic not once, but twice. And finally, “We Don’t Know How to Stop” is credited to Leather Corduroys, Purp’s project with Kami de Chukwu.
Check out the tracks in full below. To RSVP for the show, head on over here.
