Crafting bangers about his high-octane lifestyle, Smokepurpp has long idolized the fast-living rock stars of yore. Channeling their energies into a new EP, complete with a cover that pays tribute to Ozzy Osbourne, Smokepurpp announces “PSYCHO (Legally Insane)” coming next week via Alamo Records.
Titled after an urban legend about those who’ve taken more than seven doses in their lifetime (a total Purpp has long surpassed), PSYCHO (Legally Insane) gives the 23-year-old artist the opportunity to experiment with new flows and varied instrumental styles.
The EP’s lead track “Prom Queen” nods towards hip-hop history, as Purpp rocks clipped cadences over the Wendy Rene sample made famous by Wu-Tang Clan’s “Tearz,” while “Rockstar” finds him flexing his melodic muscles and “Tic Tac” dabbles in dark, Memphis-style horrorcore. Featuring an appearance from Lil Mosey, PSYCHO (Legally Insane) arrives on February 10th via Alamo Records.
Along with the announcement of the EP, Purpp shares “We Outside,” his latest video single. Produced by The Martianz, “We Outside” finds Purpp absorbing influences like the Red Hot Chili Peppers and serving up a sun-speckled, guitar-driven party banger. The song features a guest spot from Lil Mosey, who complements Purpp’s devotion to going hard until the sun comes up.
In the video, directed by Mosey himself, Purpp and Mosey pop bottles of Belaire in a beachside bungalow before taking the party on the road in a sprinter van.
