So, I heard about SpaceGhostPurrp from Carol City for the first time earlier this year courtesy of the homie Ramon, with DonsvilleMediaGroup. And from there I did a little research and saw he was getting love from the LA Weekly and tons of other sites (The Fader, The Source, more), but more importantly, he had a crazy online following. Like a real loyal cult following it seems. It took me a bit to finally get a chance to post about him. I’d be lying to you if I said that I 100 percent get what he’s about, but what I like about him is that homie does what the fuck he wants and goes completely opposite of what you want him to do. And his confidence is on a hundred thousand trillion – which pretty much has him able to take unthinkable risks, good or bad.
SpaceGhostPurrp is 20 years old, born on April Fools Day of the year 1991 and like I said, hailing out of Carol City. His latest mixtape Blvcklvnd Rvdix 66.6 (1991) dropped back in May to much fanfare. Its a real dark mixtape that has hints of familiar sounds from Wu-Tang, Three 6 Mafia, the West Coast sound and a whole bunch of lo-fi vintage type sounds. I mean, you gotta listen to it a couple times to really see what he’s about, but its definitely different. And its definitely something you wouldn’t expect to come out of Miami. And listen to the song “Black Lust” which I posted below – he released it late last week. I don’t even want to say anymore. Just listen and click to the links below and make your own judgments about SpaceGhostPurrp…
