Video: Smokepurpp – “Dirty Dirty” ft. Lil Skies (Prod. by Apex Martin)
The Alamo Records Rapper Shares a Lo-Fi, High-Energy Video Off the Highly-Anticipated Deadstar 2
XXL Class of 2018 Freshman
“Purpp has caught the ears of everyone from The Weeknd and D.R.A.M. to Chief Keef and Travis Scott, and the 19-year-old rapper is in position for a rapid ascent” – Pigeons & Planes
“If you’ve not been following along, the rise of young Miami rapper SmokePurrp – alongside that of his longtime pal and collaborator Lil Pump – has been one of the more exciting rides in rap’s underground this year” – Noisey
“Out of all the SoundCloud and Florida rappers that have gained floods of attention and acclaim in recent years, Smokepurpp has stood as one of the movement’s strongest proponents and artists.” – HYPEBEAST
Taking over the trap game with a mischievous grin, Smokepurpp commands the respect of some of the genre’s biggest names. Coming through with a hypnotically raunchy new slapper, Purpp shares “Dirty Dirty,” his new single, produced by Apex Martin. Recruiting Lil Skies for a verse and to tag-team an X-rated chorus, Purpp turns the track into a naughty nursery rhyme, weaving his flow around plunking synths and entrancing flutes. The track arrives with a grainy, VHS-style new video, in which the two rappers retreat to a warehouse and re-enact their lyrics with an impish charm. “Dirty Dirty” is the latest video from Deadstar 2, Purpp’s long-awaited debut album, following the bass-heavy “Stevie,” which has earned one million YouTube views since its Halloween release.
Executive-produced by Mike Dean, Deadstar 2 expands and refines Smokepurpp’s winning formula, bursting with sonic detail, but with enough space for Purpp to spin his witty bars into hard-hitting cadences. Featuring production from Murda Beatz, Ronny J, and Go Grizzly, among others, and an impressive, yet-to-be-revealed array of high-end guest stars, Deadstar 2 is the ultimate showcase yet for Purpp’s intergalactic appeal, equally suited to headphone listening and festival moshing. Deadstar 2 hits the Internet in December via Alamo Records.
Stay tuned in the coming weeks for much more info about Deadstar 2, before Purpp takes the stage in December at Rolling Loud Los Angeles.

The Chicago-born, Miami-raised rapper and producer Smokepurpp has been one of the cornerstones of Florida’s burgeoning rap scene since the release of his “Ski Mask” video in 2015. The buzz from the video and other singles with close friend Lil Pump culminated in a record deal with Alamo/Interscope Recordsand Travis Scott’s Cactus Jack Records. The 21-year old Purpp quickly went to work, collaborating with Scott, Yo Gotti, Pump, and more. His debut release, Deadstar, spawned the gold-certified single “Audi” and generated features from The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Pigeons & Planes, XXL, Mass Appeal, and many more. The follow up release, Bless Yo Trap, was a collaboration with Grammy-nominated producer Murda Beatz, boasted the standout single “123” and collaborations with Lil Yachty, Offset, and A$AP Ferg. 2018 has been a banner year for Purpp so far, thanks to his selection on the 2018 XXL Freshman list, the release of “Nephew,” his Gold-certified collaboration with Lil Pump, which has over 100M streams across all platforms, and “I Love It,” the Kanye West and Pump collaboration which Purpp co-wrote and debuted at number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100. After delighting his fans with the Lost Planet EP in April, Purpp set to close the year out with the highly-anticipated Deadstar 2.
