Packing blunt-force punchlines into bite-sized bangers, Smokepurpp is one of his generation’s most reliable sources of turn-up. Preparing his most ambitious album yet, Purpp announces Deadstar 2, his long-awaited debut album, arriving later this year. 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 Apex Martin, among others, and an impressive, yet-to-be-revealed array of 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 during Q4 2019 via Alamo Records. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump and please share this with friends.
To accompany the announcement of the album, Purpp shares “Stevie,” the project’s lead single and first video. Produced by Go Grizzly, “Stevie” is an entrancing and bass-heavy banger, complete with mournful flute and a haunting horn section. Purpp starts flexing straight off the rip, bragging about his huge collection of Cartiers and diamonds that’ll make you go blind (like Stevie Wonder). In the video, which was directed by Smokepurpp and Apex Martin, Purpp rides in style, roasting a blunt in his Rolls Royce SUV on his way to a seductively-lit strip club. After a long night of partying, Purpp returns to his RR for a trip to his private plane, where he takes a well-deserved nap.
One of the defining rappers of this decade’s South Florida rap explosion, Smokepurpp expanded from SoundCloud notoriety to IRL fame. Signed to Alamo/Interscope, in a partnership with Travis Scott’s Cactus Jack Records, Smokepurpp drew mainstream recognition with the release of “Audi,” which earned hundreds of millions of streams on all platforms and earned a Gold certification from the RIAA. Smokepurpp recently performed at Coachella as a member of Gucci Gang along with fellow Floridian Lil Pump and Trap God Gucci Mane, Gucci Gang dazzled festival performers during a prime slot at Coachella, performing highlights from the three rappers’ careers. This Summer, Purpp eased his fans’ wait for Deadstar 2 with the Lost Planet EP, which featured appearances from Gunna, Lil Pump, and NLE Choppa on the EP’s popular single “Double.” 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.
