Hear SpaceGhostPurrp’s Drowsy ‘Fuck Lames’
Miami rapper floats new track on Twitter
SpaceGhostPurrp has kept things relatively low-key since last year’s Mysterious Phonk: The Chronicles of SpaceGhostPurrp, but he slipped a new song called “Fuck Lames” into the Twittersphere late last night. With its barely there beat and hazy distance, it has the veneer of a track that was aimlessly fiddled with while the rest of the world slept. But it’s also delightfully dense, with piano notes intermittently floating above the surface of the din and a heavy-lidded chorus that slides calmly over an omnipresent screwed vocal sample. Thinking man’s rap as an Internet throwaway — heady stuff, improbably.
