Pep Love Announces New Album Rigmarole For March 6 Release


Pep Love Announces New Album Rigmarole For March 6 Release

(January 2012 – Brooklyn, NY) Pep Love is excited to announce the release of his new album, Rigmarole. Despite having appeared on other artists' albums and touring heavily, this marks his first official solo album in 11 years. Rigmarole will be released March 6th via Hieroglyphics Imperium.

Founding Hieroglyphics group member Pep Love last released a solo project in 2001, and while that album, Ascension, is now considered one of the finest releases to come from the Hiero crew, Pep's new album Rigmarole is all about growth. "Most of Rigmarole was recorded during a time in my life when the music I was making was one of the few things that was actually working," explains Pep. "It was therapy; it made me feel better. So there was a lot of learning, personal growth, and healing that continues to this very day. I was focused on where I was headed as a human being more than as a rapper or recording artist. But in the process, I reinvented myself as an artist and discovered my love for what I do."

The album title, Rigmarole, was similarly inspired by Pep's quest to evolve as a person. "The word 'rigmarole,'" he notes, "means the necessary steps or process that one must go through to achieve a certain end. With my Rigmarole, then, it speaks to the process that I went through and go through as an individual and an artist – and also to the greater process of cultural evolution that hip-hop and society is experiencing."

Tracks like the Unjust produced "Reflections" reflect this concept of therapy and self-awareness, as Pep describes the song as "one of those old clock watches that a hypnotist would use to take you to a state of trance." Then there's "Runaway Slave," on which Pep details the process of bettering himself as both an individual and artist through the use of clever and creative metaphors.

And with these songs, and the album as a whole, Pep wants listeners to view the work as a new representation who he is as both a man and artist, rather than compare and contrast it against his previous work. "Rigmarole isn't a progression from my last album; if anything, it's a deviation," explains Pep. "This album is less about what I'm saying and more about what I went through to get it done. It wasn't created with the intention of living up to anything else."
