EDITORS’ NOTES

Mysterious Phonk is SpaceGhostPurrp's official major-label debut, introducing the uninitiated masses to his strange yet compelling, hyper-original style. While many upstart emcees lean on volume and aggression to get their voices heard, Purrp goes the opposite route. He's got a mellow, almost-whispered flow and subdued, low-BPM self-production loaded with unconventional beats, weird sound effects, and moody instrumentation. Though he's from South Florida, his music rarely veers into your typical Dirty South sound. To compare him to more established artists, he's kind of a hybrid of Brotha Lynch Hung, Dudley Perkins, ODB, and Afroman, with old-school Three Six Mafia and Schoolly D thrown in for good measure. Down with the Raider Klan Mafia, Purrp and his cohorts have developed a strong cult following with their outsider status, bizarro approach, and prolific mixtape output, though time will tell if Purrp's unusual music resonates with wider audiences. A 14-track mix of older joints and new songs, this is ideal for hardcore fans and newbies alike.

TITLE TIME

About SpaceGhostPurrp

Connecting the dots between the Odd Future style of underground and the dark sound of Three 6 Mafia's early work, SpaceGhostPurrp emerged in 2010. Coming from the Carol City community in Miami, the rapper/producer first gained an audience for his eerie brand of hardcore rap by posting random tracks to the Internet. In 2011, he released his successful Blvcklvnd Rvdix 66.6 mixtape, which featured guest shots from Main Attrakionz. Tracks with Smoke DZA and ASAP Rocky landed on his debut commercial release, The Chronicles of SpaceGhostPurrp, which was issued in 2012 on the veteran indie label 4AD. ~ David Jeffries
