Get to know the Miami-born producer/rapper who reps the Raider Klan.
Earlier this week, after posting a photo of himself hanging out with A$AP Rocky, Soulja Boy decided to start a Twitter beef with SpaceGhostPurrp. The “Crank That” rapper promised to see Space in the streets and bizarrely even threatened to eat his face. While SpaceGhost did respond to Soulja, he seemed more bemused than enraged.
This latest social media spat comes only a week after Rocky himself called out SpaceGhost on Twitter, words that SpaceGhost seemed to take more personally. When Dat PMF was asked about SGP at last weekend's BET Awards, Rocky dismissed him as "corny" and said he should "stick to making beats." It would appear that Rocky and SpaceGhost have gone from being friends and collaborators (Space produced on Live.Love.A$AP and also contributed some verses) to strangers at best.
All of which is unfortunate because Space seems to be coming into his own right now. The 21-year-old Miami native has been buzzing since last year when he dropped his Blvcklvnd Rvdix 66.6 project, but he really took it to another level this year with the release of his new album, Mysterious Phonk: The Chronicles of SpaceGhostPurrp, which Complex chose as one of the Best Albums of 2012 (So Far).
That's why we just had to get on the horn with him to find out Who Is SpaceGhostPurrp? The Miami rapper told us how the death of his best friend changed his life, how people mistake his kindess for weakness, and shared his perspective on what really happened between him and the A$AP Mob.
