Smokepurpp is dropping a new track and video tonight, “Stevie” (prod by Go Grizzly) along with the announcement of a Q4 release window for his long awaited and much anticipated new album, Deadstar 2
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.
One of the defining rappers of this decade’s South Florida rap explosion, Smokepurpp expanded from Soundcloud notoriety to IRL fame, signing 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 before going on to perform at Coachella as a member of Gucci Gang along with fellow Floridian Lil Pump and Trap God Gucci Mane. This past 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.”
