Coming through with a wild new video, Purpp shares “Repeat,” his latest video. Strutting his stuff atop a diabolical instrumental from Kenny Beats, Purpp packs a litany of rude rhymes and addictive cadences into the 2-minute song, weaving his way between the distorted bass blasts and robotic synths of the beat. The video echoes the futuristic elements in the instrumental–everyone in the video besides Purpp wears dark shades like characters from The Matrix, covering up otherworldly, all-black eyes. Meanwhile, Purpp keeps talking his shit on repeat, as he rocks head-to-toe designer, flashes his ice, and flexes in his all-white foreign.

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.
