Pep Love chronology


Ascension Side C (2003)

Ascension is the debut solo album by American rapper Pep Love, released in 2001 on Hiero Imperium. As a part of the collective Hieroglyphics, Pep Love had made several appearances on songs by other members of the group, in addition to recording songs as a member of the duo The Shamen alongside Jay-Biz. With the exception of the individual members of Souls of Mischief, Pep Love was the last rapping member of Hieroglyphics to release an album. 

Ascension was released to predominantly positive reviews from critics, although The A.V. Club gave it a mixed review. It failed to make an impact commercially and did not reach any Billboard charts.
