SpaceGhostPurrp - Chronicles Of SpaceGhostPurrp

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.

  1. really digging this…wish it was a tad bit longer…prod is smooth

  2. Karmacoma? funny cos he mentions 1998 in the lyrics, and that’s kind of what it reminds me of….

    • Thought the same thing!

      1995 is when the song came out though for both Massive Attack on Protection and Tricky, re-doing it under the title Overcome on Maxinquaye :)

  3. not bad, but not really blowing me away either.
