SpaceGhostPurrp – The Black G
At first spin, underground rap game changer Spaceghostpurrp being all, “I’m a god. I’m no longer a black man” sounds like a pretty controversial mission statement to be slinging from one’s Caddie. “Believe in the god of black” turns that frown upside down. Never mind the rap video bollocks – buxom honeys, dollar bills and fancy cognac: the Sunshine State’s SPG is an anti-hero worth getting more than a little evangelical about.
The official release of The Black God cuts even deeper than the original – and we had that on repeat for weeks. The signature hazy phonk that had everyone’s knickers in a twizzle over the production on A$AP’s Pretty Flacko has sharpened the claws on this panther of an anthem. SPG, that’s the phonky shit.
