Greenova South ft. Lil Flip - "KRWU" prod. by Young God



KRWU is quickly becoming my most anticipated album of 2016, and this title track from the project will definitely keep my interest peaked until we get the full tape. (Pep just told me it could drop as early as this month.)

Houston veteran hitmaker Lil Flip sounds perfectly at home over Young God's syrupy mellow instrumental. Pep and Squadda also have very strong presences on this one.

Greenova South (Pepperboy & Squadda B) - "Tears in My Eyes" prod. by Young God

Little Rock's Pepperboy put out one LP and one collaborative EP last year. In comparison to the monsoon of content he put out in 2013 and 2014, 2015 was a slow year for him. Or at least that was my assumption. Now it seems evident that he's been busy recording and carefully calculating his next move.

In his vast catalog, the mournful "Tears in My Eyes" stands out as his best track. And lucky for us, there's an entire LP coming from this same team (Pepp, Squadda B from Main Attrakionz, and production by Young God of BSBD). The project will be out via NY boutique clothing giant Mishka, which is an appropriate and well deserved platform for Pepp.

🍸 Here's to a big 2016 for Pepperboy and his affiliates.

Pepperboy & S. Ray - Hard 2 Cope

Little Rock's own Pepperboy continues his frenzy of new releases with his latest free LP, Hard 2 Cope, and he's kinda enough to let me premiere it. It's a collaboration with Greenova South newcomer S. Ray and features guest spots by Kobizzle and Main Attrakionz' Squadda B! Download it over at the Greenova South Bandcamp page.

A Layman's Guide to Pepperboy



Over the past year or two, Little Rock's Pepperboy has become an unlikely seasoned hero in the Internet-centric cloud rap movement. His first spike in national attention can be traced back to April, 2011, when Lil B borrowed a Pep beat for his track "My Life." This tiny blip on hip-hop's expansive timeline saw Pep keeping in touch with Lil B and forming even closer ties with some of B's Cali constituents, namely Keyboard Kid and Main Attrakionz' Squadda B.

These and other connections have served him well, but Pep's real key to a maintained visibility has been his ability to seize the moment. He saw the interest in his work climbing, and he responded with a monsoon of creative output, resulting in 12 releases over the course of the last 19 months. Most of these 12 releases are full length albums, and they've landed him press with Spin, Fader, Mishka, MTV Hive and a host of other sites.

In this feature we'll take a look at all 12 releases and ask Pep some questions along the way to gain a bit of incite on the significance of each album. This list is chronological minus the first entry, which is the AiMT premiere of Pep's latest offering.

Pepperboy - "Lost" Video

Here's Pep's take on Lil B's "Unchain Me" beat. You can grab it on his newish EP, The Classic (Remastered).



As a bonus, here's Pep's latest collab with Main Attrakionz' Squadda B. It happens to have my favorite cover art of the year so far.
