Joey Purp is the most lyrically vicious MC in Chicago’s Save Money clique. But iiiDrops isn’t just about bars. “Girls,” featuring Chance the Rapper, should be a hit in its own right. “Kids” demonstrates Purp’s range as he contorts his voice while singing his heart out. Joey is at his best on rapping his ass off on tracks like “Morning Sex,” “Corner Store” featuring Saba, and “Godbody.” He’s “poppin’ like Polo tags in ’98,” and his ear for beats is nothing short of impressive. 2017 might be the year he turns into a household name. —Angel Diaz
