Finally. The official Leather Chords project is here. We got an EP early last year, but we wanted to full entree. Patiently we waited, and now it’s upon us. The duo of Joey Purp and KAMI bless the world with their official debut, Season.
‘Tis the season, for real. I heard an early version of this months ago, so let’s hope the final count matches how dope it was when I first heard it. I’m expecting big things. Season is below.
One half of Leather Chords, Kami De Chukwu, kicks this quick little real homie roll call that doubles as a freestyle. He’s calling it “Twitter Follower Freestyle,” and he appears to shout out his favorite twitter followers or those that he follows. I’m not sure I follow, but follow him doing the damn thing below. But Kami, no shout for your boy? Come on, fam.
Something mean and vicious from Sterling Hayes and Joey Purp. This is a remix of “Father’s Son,” the original of which dropped back in March. Lots of emotions and pent-up anger on this one. A very strong record featuring strong words from two strong emcees.
The BIGshorty EP should be out before the year is up. This remix is the real deal, though. Get to know your Pops under the cut.

Kami De Chukwu and Joey Purp return with a new Leather Chords joint, and this one is known as “Mexican Coke.” The sugar is real here, no fraudulent sweetener. Another dope outing from the diabolical duo. Now we wait on real the album. Tick, tock.

Whoop! One of my favorite songs of the year gets a crispy new video by the lovely ladies of Verluxe. This is the Joey Purp solo shot from the Leather Corduroys album. Now wipe him down — this joint is too trill.
New Leather Chords anyone? It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from KENE and Purp, but they’re back with a brand new joint which they’re calling “Her”.
As far as the Leather Corduroys LP goes, it’s set to impact ‘spontaneously’ according to KENE. Our advice? Listen to “Her” below and stay woke, y’all.
Cheese fondue raps? Nah, you’re not at Leather Corduroys taste level. You can try and try again, but you can’t sit at the table. I’m not sure we can either. Here they grab their SaveMoney crony, Vic Mensa, to assist on this upper echelon rap. Take a dip into it below.

Joey Purp’s “Don’t Stop” was one of the dopest records to drop last year and now the song comes to life in the official video, which you can watch above. This joint still sounds as strong as it did when it first dropped and we’re glad Purple decided to give it the visual treatment. Press play and let Purp take you to church.
If you’re craving more from Joey Purp after watching the clip above, you can grab FSD’s Best Of Joey Purp compilation right here. Consider it necessary listening.
C-Sick and Purple have both had a solid week online. Very productive. Critically acclaimed even. Well, the producer and emcee join forces yet again to craft “Man Now,” which shall appear on Columbia College’s AEMMP Records’ La Collection project which will drop later this year. C-Sick is producing the project in full, so you can expect amazing things.
It’s no secret that Purp and Sick are two of the Chi’s brightest minds, so listen to them illuminate below. These two need to work more often.
The highly anticipated EP from Kami de Chukwu and Joey Purple, collectively known as Leather Corduroys, has finally hit the e-streets. Apparently, the EP has been released a little earlier than expected thanks to none other than Chance The Rapper (or whoever operates his ChanceRaps account) via Reddit. Pretty interesting, but we’ll take it.
Glad this didn’t turn out to be an April Fools’ Day joke. Or did it? Either way, hit the jump to stream and download.
