Spaceghostpurrp reminds me of Caravaggio, a braggadocious talent with plenty of genius but plagued by a bi-polar tendency to get irrational quickly. I just so happened to be on his Twitter timeline yesterday afternoon when I saw a tweet about how he was about to delete it forever, followed by a message to “Like” the Facebook page in order to keep in the loop. Needless to say, moments later the account changed to @THISSHITDELETED. So it isn’t actually deleted but his handle changed to indicate his displeasure with Twitter (I’m assuming he was fed up with the plethora of feedback available on the network). Again, I believe this simply reeks of instability, Azealia Banks steez (she reneged and ended up coming back to Twitter).
However, his musical talent and take no shit attitude has entertaining facets. Check out his new feature on Pitchfork’s +1 series to see how hype this Raider Klan despot can get at a show in addition to his take on his relationship with A$AP.
Finally some visuals off this ”Mysterious Phonk: The Chronicles of SpaceGhostPurrp” album. Viewer beware the video is a cascade of flashing lights sprinkled with consistent shapeshifting. South Florida’s SpaceGhostPurrp is making a steady climb to the top of everyones watch lists and shows us a glimpse of his unconventional idiosyncrasies in this video. This is a dark video with some smart visuals and lighting play that work to make it seem bigger than it should. Like his music this video is best consumed while absurdly inundated with drugs and or lean slash alcohol. Consume with care. Oh and for those of you looking into the biblical nature of the track title, please, I did that Google search for you, click here.
Writers Note: I have a lot of respect for the random nature of this video’s release, for a guy on the come up it’s initially bewildering to see the 1AM EST video release time, however, there’s something exorbitantly gangster about that, and I like that, yes I like that.
