Rapper Big Piph is still reeling from the positive reception of his single, “Dear White People,” which tackled the current racial tensions in America and was well received by some of the biggest blogs in hip-hop.

Today, the Little Rock, AK emcee unveils his 9-track EP, I Am Not Them. The project displays many sides to the rapper. From the socially conscious cuts like “Dem Shawts” and “Dear White People” to more lighthearted odes to the ladies displayed on tracks such as title track “I Am Not Them,” “Queens No Crown,” and “Why.” Big Piph delves deep on the introspective “Burning Embers.”

This multidimensional EP is where soulful boom bap cuts meets trap. Big Piph is essentially an activist at his core, and the struggles of the black community weighs heavily on his heart. He tackles these issues using palatable beats and a non-judgmental approach, which ensures that his message is not overlooked or misinterpreted. Big Piph is also a fervent lover of the ladies, who he pays homage to throughout the EP.

I Am Not Them features DK, Bijoux and Boondoc, Curtis Rice, Bware and The Realest YK, as well as stellar production courtesy of HeartBeatz, Apollo Lane, Ferocious and more.


Standout tracks:

“Burning Embers”, “Dem Shawts”, “Dear White People” and “Hello Lady”
