Spaceghost Purrp - God of Black Vol. 1 [Download]
by Trill Smith
No offense but I’m spelling all your titles correctly. All of them Xs are hard to read, mayne. You out here lookin’ like a broke nigga on Wheel of Fortune; can’t buy no fuckin vowels.
Known mainly for his 3 6 Mafia infatuation & his ties to the ASAP Mob, Purrp finally gave us his latest work a few days ago. It may or may not be what some were expecting (the reception seems mixed).
God of Black serves to both show you what creative space Purrp is in at the moment & as an introduction to the Raider Klan. As with almost every rap crew, a first lady of sorts is brought into the fold. Where No Limit had Mia X & Triple 6 had Gangsta Boo, the Raider Klan has Amber London. She seems to fit the thug misses role well, sounding at home over the g-funk influenced production.
Other notable appearances come from Metro Zu, who seem to be the current tumblr wave, & Lil Ugly Mane. Lil’ Ugly Mane is tight yet I can’t place my finger on why he appeals to me. Whatever it is, it works. I’d liken it to the same appeal Purrp has, in that there’s the nostalgia factor to it. If they ever release an actual cassette, I’ll cop it.
