Rigmarole a fost lansat în data de 20 martie 2012, prin Hiero 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."
