Last night, the ever-popular Vic Mensa played for a sold out crowd at Chicago’s Reggie’s Rock Club. Some of the highlights of the evening included Vic bringing out Rockie Fresh for “Time Is Money,” and Joey Purp for “Fear & Doubt.” Later in the evening, Vic even covered one of Lupe Fiasco’s biggest records, “Daydreamin,” Looked like a dope show.
Hit the jump to see Vic and Joey Purp do “Fear & Doubt,” and Vic’s Lu cover.
Producers THEMPeople recruit Via Rosa, Tokyo Shawn and Leather Cords for the first drop from their forthcoming project, Smokebreaks 4. The end result? This dope joint you can check out below.
Nico even shows up to play a trumpet. A true SaveMoney tsunami. Smokebreaks 4 coming soon.

One of my absolute favorite records of the year finally gets the visual it has long needed. Tokyo Shawn and Joey Purp’s damn near perfect “World Turning,” which was produced by Caleb James, is a record that you should stop what you’re doing and listen to immediately if you haven’t already.
The Erykah Badu-sampled work of art needed a vivid video to bring the record to life, and the Verluxe ladies more than delivered here. You’re gonna need to step up your wardrobe budget after pressing play. Tokyo Shawn’s Wave Theory is due out some time in the near future. SaveMoney, y’all.

You’ve heard the ‘FSD Presents…Best Of’ tapes we’ve put together for Lil Herb & Lil Bibby, SaveMoney and King Louie, and today we return with our latest installment, chronicling the career of Joey Purp. To quote Beanie Sigel: “I got the best of out and y’all ain’t heard shit yet.” Okay, so you’ve heard from Joey, as he does have one official project under his belt, 2012′s The Purple Tape. The tape was stellar, but Joey was relatively unknown at the time, so you’re forgiven if it flew under your radar.
Over the course of the past year, Joey’s profile has risen significantly. His songs have gotten sharper. His rhymes more complex. Solo efforts like “Don’t Stop,” and “World Turning” were a smack in the face and a pound of smelling salt for anyone napping on Young Purple. He stole the show on his guest appearances on Vic Mensa and Caleb James’ projects, more specifically the high powered 16 on “Fear & Doubt.” All evidence that Purp is one of the best contenders in the city of Chicago.
Joey drops loose joints sporadically, but we felt it was our civic duty to package these records together for your listening pleasure. We handle the heavy lifting for you. Joey’s next project is sure to be his breakthrough to the masses, but until we get that you get this: The Best Of Joey Purp.

In the past we’ve given you ‘FSD Presents…Best Of’ tapes from the likes of Lil Herb & Lil Bibby, SaveMoney and King Louie, and we’re back again with our latest installment, which shines light on one of our favorite MCs, and one of the dopest in the game (in our humble opinion), Joey Purp.
Purp waves the SaveMoney flag high, but we feel his contributions to the scene as a solo artist deserve more shine. His bars are impeccable, and he truly paints vivd imagery with words. However, his material is relatively scarce, mainly dropping loosies and popping up on appearances here and there. He’s dropped one proper project, The Purple Tape, which was more of an EP than an actual album, so we wanted to gather a slew of his material together to give you a best of. If you haven’t been paying attention, now is a good time to start. But we do all the heavy lifting for you.
The Best Of Joey Purp drops on FSD tomorrow (10/15). It’s purple reign.
Produced by Thelonious Martin.
Joey Purple and Thelo never disappoint when they connect and their latest collaboration, “Monologue”, is no exception. Click play and listen up below.
Last night’s The Jones Live at Reggie’s starring Caleb James was a sight to see. Everyone from Chella H to ShowYouSuck to Kembe X to the entire Save Money crew came out to perform and show love. One of the highlights of the evening, however, was when Giftz stormed the stage with the Save Money army in tow, to perform the remix of “Nino.” It hit like El Nino. If you missed the show, shame on you, but luckily we have some recap clips for you.

SaveMoney has been doing this for a while, but they’ve yet to give us the gift of a group project. So we put one together out of 25 of their best songs so far. Think of this as the Save Money “essentials,” but there are sure to be many more in the years to come (as well as many great songs that aren’t on the list). In light of the entire world’s introduction to Chance The Rapper, it’s only right that the team starts getting the attention they deserve. Besides, they’re all very good at this thing called rapping.
In honor of the Save Money Army joining like Voltron to perform at tonight’s FSD & Red Bull Present: Sound Select concert (tickets are still available), Fake Shore Drive has compiled a ‘Best of Save Money’ mixtape featuring some of the crew’s best and most slept-on joints. The compilation was put together by the honorable Ty Kidd, who dug up rarities, loosies and joints that never had Mp3s. He’s packaged them all together for your listening pleasure. Need a crash course in Save Money prior to tonight’s show? Look no further.
Joey Purp, Caleb James, Chance The Rapper, Vic Mensa, Kami de Chukwu, Dally Auston, Brian Fresco, Tokyo Shawn. Yep, the gang’s all here. Stream and download below and we’ll see you at the show tonight.
