Little Rock rapper Pepperboy has been making noise about his Post-Traumatic Stress mini-album for well over a month now, teasing us by re-posting its robust cover art several times daily on his personal Facebook account. The album finally dropped today as a free download through NY label Baku Shad-do.
If you've made some time to familiarize yourself with Pep's other recent free releases, all of which you can stream here, then P.T.S.'s eight somber tracks will immediately register as classic Pepperboy: bleak-but-hopeful tales told in a distinctive Southern drawl over a modern selection of ambient-leaning beats by folks like Clams Casino and Blue Sky Black Death. Stream and download the release below:
I confirmed with Pep earlier that Mishka will be putting out P.T.S.'s accompanying mixtape later today. It will feature Lil B, Alaska's Droski Boyz, and Pep's longtime collaborator Temolja.
