4AD is a label with a long and rich history, but it hasn’t exactly released a whole ton of rap music over the decades. But now, out of nowhere, they’ve inked a deal with the zoned-out Florida rapper/producer and ASAP Mob affiliate SpaceGhostPurrp. It’s not a terrible fit! 4AD’s early-days aesthetic was built on hazy, mysterious guitar sounds, and Purrp’s style is just as hazy and mysterious, though it’s built from old Southern rap cult hits and tape hiss. Purrp’s Chronicles Of SpaceGhostPurrp album is coming soon, and below, you can download the characteristically dazed first single “No Evidence.”
Chronicles Of SpaceGhostPurrp is out 6/12 on 4AD.
