Download/stream Pepperboy's new mini-album, Post-Traumatic Stress

Pepperboy's P.T.S.

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.

Lots of free stuff by Little Rock rapper Pepperboy



I've been a bad Arkansas blogger. I claim to rep AR rap to the fullest. However, Fader, Mishka, Spin, and everyone else on earth seems to have beaten me to Little Rock's Pepperboy, a seasoned AR-bred rapper whose catalog goes back over ten years. . .

Pepperboy's notoriety hit a spike last year when Lil B used one of Pepperboy's beats on his Bitch Mob mixtape. One thing led to another, and now it's safe to say that Pepperboy's name is officially buzzing. It's good timing too because 2012 has been a very active year for him, and he's been kind enough to give away tons of tracks and full releases on his Bandcamp page.
