Chi-Town’s own Joey Purp – half of the duo Leather Corduroys and founding member of Savemoney – just dropped a new video for “Awe Sh*t!” off his hot new album, Quarterthing LP.
“It’s sneakily one of the most inventive mainstream rap records of the year so far.” -NOISEY
Directed by Jason Peterson, the video features Chance the Rapper, KAMI, Towkio and others behind a striped backlit screen all participating in Chicago-originated footwork.
Joey first hit the scene in back in 2016 with his iiiDrops mixtape. He’s come along way since then, teaming up with Chance the Rapper just last month for another track called “My Own Thing.” Quarterthing is his first official studio album, released independently on Sept. 7, 2018.
Sheldon Pearce of Pitchfork gave the album an 8.3 out of 10: “These are songs that refuse to be beholden to what came before, songs that understand and even cherish their connections to music of the past but have entirely different destinations in mind.”
Check out the “Awe Sh*t!” video below.
