Pepperboy - "Lost Soulja"

Today Little Rock's Pepperboy continues his busy streak of free new releases with Tora-Tora-Tora EP, which builds off the military theme of his 3 Volleys album from earlier this year. "Lost Soulja" seems to chronicle Pep's own imagination pertaining to events of the Pacific War:


Pepperboy - 3 Volleys (Free Album)

Hot off the heels of a SXSW performance and a collaboration EP with 607, Arkansas' hardest working rapper, Pepperboy, is back today with his 14th release in only two years time. Like his last few projects, 3 Volleys is a free full length LP out on the southern division of Main Attrakionz' Greenova label.

Pepp has kept his infatuation with military imagery no secret, and 3 Volleys is his first military-themed concept album. If you need a crash course on Pepperboy, don't forget to read my interview and dissection of his discography from last October: A Layman's Guide to Pepperboy.

Pepperboy - "Psycho"


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.
