Video: Smokepurpp – “Draco“
The South Florida Star Shares the First Video From the 3-Song Anti “Capsule”
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
Smokepurpp specializes in defiant hedonism, expressing his defiant attitude in thrilling, bite-sized segments. Posting up in a remote mansion with enough firepower to seize a Caribbean island, Purpp shares his new video for “Draco.” Dancing over sirenic synths with his clipped cadences, Purpp is in rare form on the Gesco and Klokez-produced track, unfurling antisocial gems at a rapidfire pace: “Bitch, I’m busy, I’m out chasing dollars/I’m a dog like I need me a collar.” In the video, Purpp demonstrates how he keeps his “whole gang on the payroll,” recruiting them out to his remote mansion where they can tote their prized firearms and sip champagne in the middle of the day.
“Draco” is a highlight from Anti, Purpp’s first new release of 2023. A new experimental format for Purpp, where he can follow his iconoclastic muse in short-form bursts, the new “capsule” Anti compiles three quick-hitting bangers into a potent salvo. Featuring production from Supah Mario, DSC Sunny, and Bido, the hedonistic Anti capsule is available everywhere via Alamo Records.
The new Anti capsule is a high-energy follow-up to “Shoot First,” released in November. “Shoot First” was Purpp’s first new single as a lead artist since 2021’s “Not Your Speed” ft. Lil Gnar, but he has kept busy in the meantime collaborating with the likes of Masked Wolf, Rarri, and Mike Stone. Purpp is hard at work on more “capsules” and a new project, his first since Psycho (Legally Insane) EP and his first full-length since the ferocious 2020 mixtape Florida Jit.
Stay tuned from much more from the iconoclastic artist as the year moves on, including a performance at the inaugural Rolling Loud Thailand in April.

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 closed 2020 out with the highly-anticipated Deadstar 2. In 2020, Purpp released his project Florida Jit, with appearances from Lil Pump, Denzel Curry, and more.
