“If you’ve not been following along, the rise of young Miami rapper SmokePurrp – alongside that of his longtime pal and collaborator Lil Pump – has been one of the more exciting rides in rap’s underground this year” – Noisey

“Out of all the SoundCloud and Florida rappers that have gained floods of attention and acclaim in recent years, Smokepurpp has stood as one of the movement’s strongest proponents and artists.HYPEBEAST

The Video:

Bringing a chaotic energy into any room he enters, Smokepurpp isn’t too hard to throw down on the dance floor. Showing off some of his most animated moves, Purpp shares the video for Walk On Water.Riding a hyperactive beat, marked by horror-movie pianos and clattering hi-hats, Purpp flashes several different flows and reels off a few tweet-worthy witticisms. In the video, Purpp and his friends retreat into a windowless bunker, but the dreary location doesn’t stop them from losing their minds–Purpp totes guns, enjoys the company of models, and dances his ass off. “Walk On Water” is a highlight from Lost Planet 2.0an expansion of his recent Lost Planet EP, and it follows the otherworldly video for Repeat. Featuring appearances from Lil Pump, Gunna, and NLE Choppa, Lost Planet 2.0 arrives via Alamo/Interscope.

One of the most popular rappers in South Florida’s cresting wave, Smokepurpp made his name on SoundCloud, building up a loyal following and earning millions of plays on each track. Signed to Alamo/Interscope, in a partnership with Travis Scott’s Cactus Jack Records, Smokepurpp drew mainstream recognition with the release of “Audi,” which earned hundreds of millions of streams on all platforms, including 124 million on Spotify, and earned a Gold certification from the RIAA.

The Background:

The Chicago-born, Miami-raised rapper and producer Smokepurpp has been one of the cornerstones of Florida’s burgeoning rap scene since the release of his “Ski Mask” video in 2015. The buzz from the video and other singles with close friend Lil Pump culminated in a record deal with Alamo/Interscope Recordsand Travis Scott’s Cactus Jack Records. The 21-year old Purpp quickly went to work, collaborating with Scott, Yo Gotti, Pump, and more. His debut release, Deadstar, spawned the gold-certified single “Audi” and generated features from The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Pigeons & Planes, XXL, Mass Appeal, and many more. The follow up release, Bless Yo Trap, was a collaboration with Grammy-nominated producer Murda Beatz, boasted the standout single “123” and collaborations with Lil Yachty, Offset, and A$AP Ferg. 2018 has been a banner year for Purpp so far, thanks to his selection on the 2018 XXL Freshman list, the release of “Nephew,” his Gold-certified collaboration with Lil Pump, which has over 100M streams across all platforms, and “I Love It,” the Kanye West and Pump collaboration which Purpp co-wrote and debuted at number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100. After delighting his fans with the Lost Planet EP in April, Purpp set to close the year out with the highly-anticipated Deadstar 2.
