Smokepurpp Shares “We Outside” Video ft. Lil Mosey, Announces 2/10 EP
The Alamo Records Signee Gets In Touch With His Inner Rock Star On His Upcoming 6-Track EP
Crafting bangers about his high-octane lifestyle, Smokepurpp has long idolized the fast-living rock stars of yore. Channeling their energies into a new EP, complete with a cover that pays tribute to Ozzy Osbourne, Smokepurpp announces PSYCHO (Legally Insane) coming next week via Alamo Records. Titled after an urban legend about those who’ve taken more than seven doses in their lifetime (a total Purpp has long surpassed), PSYCHO (Legally Insane) gives the 23-year-old artist the opportunity to experiment with new flows and varied instrumental styles. The EP’s lead track “Prom Queen” nods towards hip-hop history, as Purpp rocks clipped cadences over the Wendy Rene sample made famous by Wu-Tang Clan’s “Tearz,” while “Rockstar” finds him flexing his melodic muscles and “Tic Tac” dabbles in dark, Memphis-style horrorcore. Featuring an appearance from Lil Mosey, PSYCHO (Legally Insane) arrives on February 10th via Alamo Records.
Along with the announcement of the EP, Purpp shares “We Outside,” his latest video single. Produced by The Martianz, “We Outside” finds Purpp absorbing influences like the Red Hot Chili Peppers and serving up a sun-speckled, guitar-driven party banger. The song features a guest spot from Lil Mosey, who complements Purpp’s devotion to going hard until the sun comes up. In the video, directed by Mosey himself, Purpp and Mosey pop bottles of Belaire in a beachside bungalow before taking the party on the road in a sprinter van.
In 2020, Smokepurpp returned to his roots with Florida Jit, his high-energy full-length project. Populated with instrumentals from Ronny J, Earl On The Beat (City Girls, Lil Yachty), CBMIX (Lil Pump, Juice WRLD, Kanye West), and Purpp himself, the project is home to successful singles like “Off My Chest” ft. Lil Pump, which surpassed 6 million views on YouTube, “Pop Sh*t,” complete with a Little Richard-inspired music video, and “Tide Pen,” a Jack Harlow-featuring single that has over 10 million combined streams on YouTube and Spotify. Florida Jit boasted additional appearances from fellow Floridians Rick Ross and Denzel Curry. The young artist also earned his first Grammy nomination last year, which he received for his contribution to “Costa Rica,” the Gold-certified track from Revenge Of The Dreamers III, and racked up over 40 million streams on YouTube and Spotify with his guest spot on KSI‘s “Poppin.”
Purpp’s upcoming PSYCHO (Legally Insane) EP is an important step for the artist, who’s ready to raise his game in 2021. Stay tuned for much more music from the former XXL Freshman, including Bless Yo Trap 2, a sequel to his 2018 collaborative album with Murda Beatz.
