Hailing from Miami, FL, SpaceGhostPurrp, who spearheads the Raider Klan Mafia, was born on April 1st, 1991; a date that has subsequently become known to him and his followers as 'Purrp Day'. Cast in the classic mould of producer/MC, his musical influences read like a checklist of hip-hop touchstones - Three 6 Mafia, UGK, DJ Paul, Eazy E, Tupac and DJ Screw - revealing him as a true connoisseur of the gloriously weird and wonderful. Given his age, 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. Hard to pin down, his choice of language is an intriguing invite into his murky world, with the track titles alone a playful assault on audience expectations.
SpaceGhostPurrp also leads the mysterious collective of likeminded individuals called the Raider Klan Mafia who've built a compelling aesthetic on skate culture iconography and hardcore rap values. As such, he's an integral part of the US underground hip-hop community. Prolific too, to date he has released a string of online mixtapes that have helped him garner cult underground status. Chronicles of SpaceGhostPurrp sees him take a further step towards the spotlight, and one that brings new shadows with it too.
