MOB – [Smokepurpp]

It has been absolutely awesome to watch the Florida music scene blow up over the past few months, yet it has honestly been booming for the better half of a decade if not longer if you really think about it. Artists like Denzel Curry, Pouya, Kodak Black, and Ski Mask the Slump God have been popping off for quite some time, and although they might have national fame at this point, it seems like the rest of the country is just starting to catch on to the insane world of underground artists that are popping off at inconceivable rates. In the same breath, it’s hard to mention Florida without Smokepurpp considering he’s one of the other artists that helped pave the way for many of these new talents to express themselves. While I. have been a big fan of his since the beginning of his rise to fame, the very last thing I was expecting was the sound that he delivers in his latest track “MOB”. While I’m used to hearing the loud, aggressive, and sometimes ignorant Purpp, this song shows us another side of the southern superstar in a way that caught me off guard in all of the …

We Outside – [Smokepurpp] ft. [Lil Mosey]

Although there might be some underground artists that provide more output than him, Smokepurpp seems to be carrying the biggest load out of any other mainstream artist I can think of. Even after releasing Florida Jit last year as well as a slew of music videos and other singles, Purpp isn’t even close to content with where he’s at, and this is obvious with the announcement of his upcoming EP PSYCHO (Legally Insane) that’s due out later this week. In order to hype up the project just a bit before its release, Purpp decided to team up with Lil Mosey to drop the one and only single off of the EP called “We Outside” as well as a music video to come along with it, and the results are just unbelievable, in my opinion. Starting out with the instrumental that was a team effort between jordanwtf, Mike Zara, and The Martianz, we are given a couple of interesting guitar melodies that are complemented perfectly with consistently chattering percussion and some incredibly bouncy drums that pave the way for a vibey hit. Purpp begins with the chorus, providing an unforgettably catchy portion that is sure to linger in your mind for …

Do It! – [Egovert] ft. [Smokepurpp]

After one of the most stressful, unexpected years of all time, we all deserve to just kick back, relax, and enjoy ourselves as we venture on into the new year. That means, if there’s one person I trust to take over the New Year’s playlist, it has to be Egovert. Ego has become one of my favorite artists in general after I heard about him earlier this year, and he hasn’t even begun to reach his final form, which says a lot considering he already has an entire magazine of hits that I haven’t been able to stop listening to all year long. He decided to ring in the year the only way he knows how, by dropping an absolute banger, and his fans are rejoicing to say the least. After long deliberation and a couple of bumps in the road, we finally received “Do It!”, a song that Ego teased various times featuring the one and only Smokepurpp. Now, I’ve been a fan of Purpp for years and years, so when I found out one of my previous favorite artists was teaming up with one of my new favorite artists, I didn’t sleep for weeks until I heard this …

Ends – [Smokepurpp] ft. [Young Nudy]

I told myself that I needed to take a break from writing about Smokepurpp releases because I have been covering almost every single drop from him in the last couple of months, and he’s been gifting us with so much new content. Just as I said that he went and dropped a visual for one of my favorite songs on Florida Jit which features Young Nudy, and I just couldn’t help myself. Nudy is one of my favorite rappers coming out of Atlanta, and that’s high praise considering the sheer influx of artists that come out of that city. The song, of course, is called “Ends” and I have made it a priority to listen to every time I revisit parts of the album, which has been occurring quite frequently recently. The song itself begins with eerie, unsettling violin-sounding strings before Ronny J adds in his trademark thunderous 808s and rattling hats that Smokepurpp feels all too familiar with at this point in his career after working with Ronny for so long. When Purpp delivers the hook, he offers a more relaxed, calmed version of himself that eventually couples with Nudy’s demeanor as well, but that comes later on. Prior …

Chopstix – [Smokepurpp]

Okay, I know I have pretty much been writing about every single Smokepurpp release that has come out, but that’s because his rollout for Florida Jit was somewhat lengthy and very eventful. Smokepurpp has always piqued my interest with his projects because he typically covers a wide range of sonic sounds and styles, and the aforementioned project is no different. I was thoroughly impressed with most of the tracks on the album, whether they contained features from artists like Yung Nudy, Denzel Curry, Rick Ross, or Jack Harlow, but I also enjoyed his solo efforts as well. I think Smokepurpp’s ability to put together quality projects is honestly underrated, and it should definitely be praised much more than it currently is. In order to continue the hype behind the album, Purpp decided to drop a short visual for the project’s closing track “Chopstix”. While this song isn’t necessarily one of my go-to tracks off of the album, it made me rethink my stance after watching the video. The beat is made up of eerie, creeping synths, crashing percussion, and, as with the majority of the album, 808s that can and will bust your speakers if you turn the volume up …

Pop Shit – [Smokepurpp]

I feel like I’ve been writing about an overflow of Smokepurpp releases recently and I’m not complaining about that either. His upcoming album Florida Jit has been gaining tons of momentum as we’re led up to its release, and every one of the singles he has dropped has gotten me even more excited to finally see the finished product. There’s a bunch of speculation and unanswered questions surrounding the project and the biggest question of them all is when exactly is it going to drop? It was supposed to come out in May and then got pushed back, but no definitive date has been released to fans from what I could tell. Other theories surrounding this album include the fact that it’s entirely produced by his friend Ronnie J, it has features from artists like Young Nudy, Rick Ross, and Jack Harlow, among others, and a few other unanswered rumors. While it’s not surprising to be left in the dark when it comes to anticipated album releases considering we see that happen in this industry more often than not, but it always just puts my mind at ease knowing that a project is going to drop exactly when the artist …

It’s Whatever- [Smokepurpp]

With everything going on in the world right now, it’s hard to ignore the uprising that’s currently unraveling, and that’s a great thing. It needs to be out there and in front of the masses to truly force everyone to understand that this has been in the making for centuries and massive changes need to be made in order to move forward as equals. The music industry stood in solidarity with African Americans and those who have suffered for centuries on Tuesday by remaining silent and not releasing any new music, posting any articles, and only bringing attention to the very important Black Lives Matter movement at hand. While certain artists have decided to release songs that pertain to the movements and bring light to the issues at hand, I wanted to dig a bit deeper and go back a few days to write about something that is independent of all these events just to give music fans an escape for even just a few minutes before getting back to reality. While not many artists have released too much music in the past few days, Smokepurpp has been building up a ton of momentum for his upcoming album Florida Jit, …

Killing- [Diablo] x [Eliozie] & [Shakewell] ft. [Terror Reid]

It isn’t often that we get an opportunity to hear some of the best and most underrated rappers in the game come together with one of the most notorious producers of our generation to make a hit. Diablo has been crafting the sounds of the underground Rap scene for years, and he’s often underappreciated for all of the hits he has created. He’s worked with artists like Lil Pump, Kodak Black, Craig Xen, Smokepurpp, and Ski Mask the Slump God, among countless others, and each beat he provides sets them up for success before they even spit a single bar. Shakewell has long been one of my favorite artists because of his high energy and assertive disposition, along with his pure talents to Rap as fast-paced and impressively as he wants. Terror Reid, who is Getter’s Rap alter ego, has been bringing back a grungy, abundantly violent 90’s Hip-hop style and his bars are as impressive as the top spitters in the game, which a lot of people might not have realized before he began getting his name out there as being more than just a producer. I’ve honestly only heard Eliozie’s abilities when he’s hopped on Terror Reid songs, …

Off My Chest- [Smokepurpp] ft. [Lil Pump]

Few duos go together quite as well as Smokepurpp and Lil Pump. Their friendship has never been a secret and considering they came up into the spotlight together in some of the most notable glow ups in recent memory, they were somewhat always grouped with one another. Despite this being a few years ago, they’ve both taken their music careers in similar directions but distanced themselves in the public eye just a bit. Although there’s not a single problem between the two best friends, I’m assuming that they just felt like this was a smart move in order to further their individual endeavors. While Purpp has continued to cruise along on the success of Deadstar 2 that came out last year, I haven’t heard much from Pump in a while, but that could be due to my own ignorance or obliviousness. Either way, their respective silences are over, thankfully, as they have returned with a wild new tag-team effort on their song called “Off My Chest”. Deep, echoing synths, punchy drums, and forceful, hard-hitting percussion create a solid base for the duo to go to work on. As the song begins and builds up to the first hook, a clip …

Excuse Me – [Smokepurpp]

In the midst of the world basically shutting down before our eyes, I’m honestly surprised that artists haven’t capitalized on the constantly growing trend relating to the Corona Virus. It seems like the typical thing for artists in the world of music to do is to see a globally discussed issue or topic and exploit it, talking about it in everything from their music to their social media posts. Luckily this hasn’t been a major theme when it comes to the virus considering the mass hysteria it has already caused, but not every artist is letting the topic go so easily. Smokepurpp headed over to SoundCloud to release a new song called “Fuck Corona U Aint Stopping Shit (Excuse Me)”. He did, later on, clarify that the actual song title is in parenthesis, and the rest of the actual name on the music platform is most likely there to optimize searches for the song. This makes sense considering there’s never actually a single mention of the illness anywhere in the track and it could be assumed that it was even recorded previous to this pandemic. As the production starts out with slow, tiptoeing piano keys and smooth jazz saxophone, trap …
