Filthē Records before today. But when I peeped a snippet of this single Ruffian (from the Chicago-based label's upcoming compilation The Dirt Up Here: A Filthē Album)
on GRIFFEN's Instagram, I had to check it out...
The sales pitch:
Ruffian (Produced by Custom Made. Featuring Mickey Factz, IAMGAWD and GRIFFEN) is a solid banger that will be a pleasant surprise to connoisseurs of underground hip hop.The Dirt Up Here is a compilation album featuring the artists that have built Filthē Records from the dirt. And it's still over your heads.

Ruffian is just the tip of the iceberg. The previous single Lights Out is just as good, featuring Homeboy Sandman, Decay the Llama and Defcee on a nice track by Jaidot.
I was already familiar with Griff, IAMGAWD, and Homeboy Sandman, but the rest of these rhymers (and producers) are new to me. Checking the tracklist of this album confirms that I will get a nice little education from The Dirt Up Here: A Filthē Album when it drops on July 8.
So as soon as one of my clients come through, I will break off some bread for that pre-order. But you don't have to wait on me, CLICK HERE to pre-order The Dirt Up Here: A Filthē Album on Bandcamp.
