Damn, Peggy is back!

The L.A.-based rapper JPEGMAFIA, who cut his teeth and put out several acclaimed albums here in Baltimore, today released the incredibly titled single “Jesus Forgive Me, I’m a Thot.” In typical fashion, JPEG’s bars teeter between a winking, extremely online humor (“SMH, no ASMR”) and a kind of frenetic edge–and this time Peggy, a.k.a. Barrington DeVaughn Hendricks, threw in dashes of mainstream R&B into his ominous, avant-garde production.

Watch the video below:

Speaking to Billboard, JPEG had this to say about the lovely mountain vista prominently featured throughout the video: “I hiked five f—ing hours for this shoot. Five. F—ing. Hours. If anybody doesn’t like it, then f— you. I hiked five hours. I don’t care. It’s beautiful, it’s elegant, and it doesn’t have to force you into keeping your attention. I just wanted something that was able to be suspenseful without forcing it.”

It’s not yet clear if “Jesus Forgive Me, I’m a Thot” is part of a new album, what would be the follow-up to 2018’s breakthrough “Veteran”; on Twitter, Hendrcks has been teasing the “disappointment,” a possible title.

But there will definitely be a tour starting in October that wraps up with two dates at the Ottobar, on Nov. 9 and 11.

Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m., but there’s a series of pre-sales beginning Wednesday.
