Chicago’s flourishing rap scene is currently being spearheaded by a number of young new artists including Towkio of the talented SaveMoney crew.
The American rapper hit the ground running in 2012 with his collaborative Community Service EP with producer Mojek and dropped his well-received, debut mixtape .Wav Theory in 2015. He is now back at it with his anticipated follow-up project, Community Service 2.
The EP showcases strong features by Vic Mensa and Joey Purp, as well as brings the production chops of Mr Carmack, Knox Fortune, Peter Cottontail (of The Social Experiment) and more to the table. Listen below:
