The Year In Review: SpaceGhostPurrp - Mysterious Phonk: The Chronicles of SpaceGhostPurrp

SpaceGhostPurrp

June 11th marked the release of south Florida producer and MC SpaceGhostPurrp's debut album. Entitled Mysterious Phunk: Chronicles of SpaceGhostPurrp, the record compiled both new and old material, tracking the early years of this intoxicating prodigal talent.

Cast in the classic mould of producer/MC, SpaceGhostPurrp's musical influences read like a checklist of hip-hop touchstones - Three 6 Mafia, UGK, DJ Paul, Eazy E, Tupac and DJ Screw - a trait that plays out across the various contours of the record. Given his relative youth, the reference to such rich heritage shows Purrp as a child of the digital era; his rhymes veering between the hallucinogenic, somnambulant and visceral, his productions syrup-thick, schizophrenic and refreshingly off-kilter.

Overnight SpaceGhostPurrp uploaded the latest video for 'Osiris Of The East' to his Youtube channel.
