Directed by Chris Ramirez and premiering on Noisey, the visuals are dark and feature the occasional “sh!t” graphic coming at ya whenever any of the rapper shouts that to the cameras.

posted by Alberto March 19, 2014

While at SXSW, SAVEMONEY (Vic Mensa, Tokyo Shawn, Kami de Chukwu, Caleb James and Joey Purp) made a stop at Sway’s morning show for an interview and freestyle over Drake’s “Trophies.” Joey Purp had to phone in his freestyle, but it was still pretty dope. Check out the clip up above. SAVEMONEY is definitely going to keep killing in 2014.

Video: SAVEMONEY Busts Joey Purp Outta Jail – Chiraq – Ep 5

posted by Oscar February 19, 2014

Noisey’s “Chiraq” series is now on its 5th episode, in which we see Vic Mensa, seemingly right around the time of Lolla, trying to come up with the cash to bail out fellow SaveMoney rapper Joey Purp out of jail. In the process Vic opens up about the local scene, disassociating with the whole “Chiraq” lifestyle (but understanding the reasons behind its existence) and liking Rage Against The Machine (which started after he traded for one of their hats). Joey Purp’s stories about the whole experience is worth seeing as well.

See that above.

Tokyo Shawn has released the visuals for his Joey Purp-featuring track, “World Turning.” The track (featuring production from Caleb James) was released earlier in the year, but the latest video from the Save Money men came out pretty dope and continues with the momentum the crew is having this year.

“World Turning” will appear on Tokyo Shawn’s forthcoming project, Wave Theory, due out early next year. See the Verluxe-directed video above.
