Many have made comparisons between SpaceGhostPurrp's Raider Klan and the Odd Future collective, but a closer listen to the music reveals just how much he and his team stand out on their own. While his name may suggest otherwise, SpaceGhostPurrp's tracks are far from cartoonish.
His production has an extremely dark, eerie aesthetic and his lyrics pretty much follow the same tone. In addiiton to crafting his own sparse and brooding tracks, he's produced tracks for A$AP Rocky and Wiz Khalifa.
His latest release, Mysterious Phonk: The Chronicles of SpaceGhostPurrp-a blend of new and remastered tracks-is currently streaming online and should be on your summer playlists. Now that SpaceGhostPurrp has signed a deal with 4AD Records, we're expecting big things from him and his crew.
