Song: Smokepurpp – “excuse me” (Prod. by TOOM, Nikita3x, Ianobeatz)
The South Florida Rapper Hunkers Down and Shares A Noir-ish New VideoSingle, His First Since December’s Deadstar 2 Album
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
A digital native with a massive fanbase on SoundCloud, Smokepurpp always tries to please his fans. Stuck inside and with nothing to do but count his bands, Purpp shares “excuse me,” his new song. Released on SoundCloud with the title “F*CK U CORONA U AINT STOPPIN SH*T” (“just jokes yall,” clarifies Purpp), “excuse me” features an instrumental that would sound at home in 1950s detective film, with atmospheric, creeping piano and mournful saxophone emphasizing Purpp’s escalating flexes: “I ain’t check my mail/I got rich as hell/Ice cold baguettes on my teeth, I got rich as hell.” In the video, Purpp practices responsible social distancing, dancing at his house with a few homies as he shows off his tennis court, his closet, and his gold records. “excuse me” is Purpp’s first new single since the release of Deadstar 2, his recent project.
Executive produced by Mike Dean, who mixed the album and added his unique creative footprint to the project, Deadstar 2 is packed with sonic detail, but leaves enough space for Purpp to spin his witty bars into hard-hitting cadences. The new album features a series of buzzing singles, including the Lil Skies-featuring “Dirty Dirty,” chaotic lead single “Stevie“, and “Audi II,” the sequel to Purpp’s GOLD-selling hit from the original Deadstar album. Most recently, Purpp invaded the world of high art with Denzel Curry in the impish video for “What I Please” (1.9 million views). With additional guest appearances from Trippie Redd, Ty Dolla $ign, Lil Pump, and Moneybagg Yo, and production from the likes of Murda Beatz, Ronny J, Go Grizzly, Apex Martin, and more, Deadstar 2 is the ultimate showcase yet for Purpp’s intergalactic appeal, equally suited to headphone listening and festival moshing.
Deadstar 2 is available everywhere via Alamo Records/Interscope. Stay tuned for much more from Smokepurpp as 2020 moves along.

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 Records and 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.
