Leather Corduroys – Porno Music Volume II: TSFR (EP)

Kami de Chukwu and Joey Purps actually released something for real today, this is not another April Fool’s akin to Demarcus Cousins releasing a mixtape or Google giving out jobs to America’s top Pokemon masters. “Bleed” sets the tone from the start, and the whole mixtape live up to the lead track. Beats have a very dark, Flatbush Zombies feel to them. Kami has long been an ACITM favorite, and this new duo with Joey Purps is heading in the right direction. Highlight is track 4, “Nightmare on Chicago Ave.” Check out the whole thing and let us know what you think.
