Dej Loaf released the gloriously man-eating “Like A Hoe” a few weeks ago, and now the Detroit rap firecracker is back with a new track. “Shawty” falls more towards the sexy, melodic side of her range, with Dej Loaf and past collaborator Young Thug trading off some explicit sex talk (“Can’t nobody get this pussy… More »

Coachella 2013 Sunday: Wu-Tang Clan, Grimes, Jessie Ware, & More

SpaceGhostPurrp doesn’t really scream Sunday brunch hour entertainment, but he and his crew Raider Klan were one of the acts to kick off Day 3 of Coachella. Yet, he, Key Nyata, and the whole lot of them sold the kind of menace that is better suited for a dark club than beaming sun rays and… More »

Download Spaceghostpurrp B.M.W. Mixtape

When Florida rapper/producer and evil old-school fight-music revivalist Spaceghostpurrp released Mysterious Phonk, his official debut album, earlier this year, a lot of the chatter revolved around how he’d cleaned up his sound, removing many of the lo-fi rasps and random noises that made his earlier mixtapes so disorienting. Today, Purrp released his new mixtape B.M.W. More »

Stream SpaceGhostPurrp Mysterious Phonk

Floridian spacecore rapper/producer SpaceGhostPurrp has spent the past couple of years cranking out murky, spectral mixtapes that seem built entirely from the tape-hissy pre-fame output of Three 6 Mafia.

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

This happens to be a great week for the low-budget video, full of immediate grainy cinematography and big cheap ideas and strong visual sensibilities. For whatever reason, it’s been especially great for energetic rap videos. I loved the offerings from Big K.R.I.T. and Big Baby Gandhi, but I couldn’t find room for either one o… More »

Spaceghostpurrp – “Lustful 97″

Last month, we learned the unlikely news that Floridian rap weirdo and ASAP Mob affiliate Spaceghostpurrp had signed with 4AD, and he also released “No Evidence,” possibly the catchiest thing he’s ever done. Today, SGP gives us a more characteristic track: A six-minute space-out called “Lustful 97,” which sounds like a mid-’90s underground Southern ra… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: March 2012

This was an incredible month for free hip hop MP3s, and it was an incredible month for songs by Lemonade because “Neptune” is one of this year’s finest. And so the paramaters I gave myself with this month’s mix are as follows: Open with Lemonade’s “Neptune,” and create a track flow that blended but flipped… More »

SpaceGhostPurrp – “No Evidence”

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,… More »

ASAP Rocky – “Pretty Flacko”

Two days ago, quarterback Joe Flacco led my motherfucking Baltimore Ravens to a crushing, dominant win over the Cincinnati Bengals, capturing the AFC North title in the process and giving me hope that we’ll all be flipping over cars in my hometown in a month or so. I don’t know if he’s a Ravens fa… More »

Stereogum’s 40 Best New Bands of 2011

Last year, right around the time summer turned to fall, we at Stereogum published our list of the 40 best new bands of the year. The idea of a “new” band is a pretty nebulous one, since many of the kids we listed were probably planning out their musical ventures in their basements since they… More »
