SaveMoney – Seppuku [Download]

“Seppuku” dropped right after “Acid Rain” last night, and it was quite a follow up. Produced by Nez & Rio, the track features SaveMoney’s finest, Chance the Rapper, Kami de Chukwu, Vic Mensa, Tokyo Shawn, and Caleb James. We’ve featured the groups work before (constantly actually) and they all seem to be getting better with time. Jump on the SaveMoney bandwagon ASAP, it’s getting pretty packed on here. Kami and Chance seem to pair up seamlessly, would love to see a joint tape between the two. Enjoy!

Seppuku – (切腹, “stomach-cutting”) is a form of Japanese ritual suicide by disembowelment.
