The Fast-Rising Floridian Spins Irreverent Rhymes Atop Swirling Pianos On The New Single From the Upcoming Lost Planet 2.0

5.8.2019

Critical Praise:

XXL Class of 2018 Freshman

“Purpp has caught the ears of everyone from The Weeknd and D.R.A.M. to Chief Keef and Travis Scott, and the 19-year-old rapper is in position for a rapid ascent”Pigeons & Planes

“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 Song:

Specializing in well-crafted and highly-energetic bangers, Smokepurpp is one of the breakout stars of the South Florida scene. Taking just 105 seconds to demonstrate the breadth of his rhyming talent, Purpp shares “Walk On Water,” his new single. 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: “I got a glock ‘fore I got a diploma/Now I got 10 mil, so I got no diploma!” “Walk On Water” follows the otherworldly video for the Kenny Beats-produced “Repeat,” and presages the release of Lost Planet 2.0 EP, dropping later this week.

Continuing the momentum built from Coachella, where Purpp performed with Gucci Mane and Lil Pump, Lost Planet 2.0 is an expansion of Purpp’s recent Lost Planet EP. Appending three new songs to the end of the original EP, Lost Planet 2.0 is a well-timed treat for his fans, arriving on the same day as his primetime performance at Rolling Loud Miami. Featuring tracks such as the softly-sung Remember Me” and the high-energy destroyer “Double,” as well as appearances from Lil Pump, Gunna, and NLE ChoppaLost Planet 2.0 arrives on May 10th via Alamo/Interscope.

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.
