If SpaceGhostPurrp’s 4AD debut Mysterious Phonk left you wanting for the bleakly banging lo-fi excursions that put the Floridian rap iconoclast on the map, well, you’re in luck. In honor of his just launched tour, the Miami MC has gifted us with “Starz,” a crunchy, unpolished slab of granite that confidently declares, “I … am … the nigga … you wanna be.” Leaking through the speakers like a vintage Bone Thugs cassingle caught on loop, the intensely rhythmic track is fleshed out by the rapper’s hypnotic chants, which seem to summon a chorus of demonic doppelgängers who groan and toast along. “Said she go to church just to repent / Come back around me, now she wanna sin,” Purrp hisses before asserting his dominance over everyone who’s listening. The up-and-comer is currently on the road with the rest of the Raider Klan on the BMW (Black Money World) tour, named in honor of his December Black Man’s Wealth EP.
