Audio: Smokepurpp – “Said A Lotta Things”

The Usually-Brash Emcee Gets Into His Feelings For This Sweetly-Sung Auto-Tuned Trap Ballad

Critical Praise:

XXL Class of 2018 Freshman

“Purpp has caught the ears of everyone from The Weeknd and D.R.A.M. to Chief Keef and Travis Scott, and the 19-year-old rapper is in position for a rapid ascent” – Pigeons & Planes

“If you’ve not been following along, the rise of young Miami rapper SmokePurrp – alongside that of his longtime pal and collaborator Lil Pump – has been one of the more exciting rides in rap’s underground this year” – Noisey

“Out of all the SoundCloud and Florida rappers that have gained floods of attention and acclaim in recent years, Smokepurpp has stood as one of the movement’s strongest proponents and artists. – HYPEBEAST

The Song:

He made his name with mosh pit-ready bangers, but Smokepurpp is just as effective when he simmers down. Today, Smokepurpp shares Said A Lotta Things,” a regret-filled, bite-sized trap ballad. Crooning atop a muted guitar melody from Thank You Fizzle (Gunna, Lil Pump), Purpp reflects on how his partying habits have serious effects on his emotional well-being: “I was on 10 xans when I told you you were my girlfriend/I was on 9 percocets when I told you that I love you/And when I told you I love you I was high on mushrooms.” The song gets a lift from Purpp’s burbling, high-pitched ad-libs, which provide a secondary hook. “Said A Lotta Things” is Purpp’s first new song since the release of Florida Jit, his recent project.

Populated with instrumentals from Ronny JEarl On The Beat (City Girls, Lil Yachty), CBMIX (Lil Pump, Juice WRLD, Kanye West), and Purpp himself, Florida Jit delivers 17 tracks of high-energy trap music. The project is home to successful singles like Off My Chest” ft. Lil Pump, which surpassed 4 million views on YouTube,  Pop Sh*t,” which inspired an outrageous music video, and Tide Pen,” a Jack Harlow-featuring single that has over 6 million combined streams on YouTube and Spotify. Most recently, Purpp connected with Young Nudy, sharing a horror movie-inspired visual for project highlight Ends.” Featuring additional appearances from Rick Ross and Denzel CurryFlorida Jit is available everywhere via Alamo Records.

In late July, Purpp and Apex Martin hosted a unique performance on Cadenza.tv, playing songs from Florida Jit for the first time and judging a March Madness-style beat competition. Smokepurpp earned his first Grammy nomination this year for his appearance on “Costa Rica,” the Gold-certified track from Revenge Of The Dreamers III. In February, Purpp’s breakout single “Audi” earned a Platinum certification from the RIAA, and his single “Do Not Disturb” went Gold. He’s currently turning heads with his guest spot on UK rapper KSI’s “Poppin’,” which has already generated 40 million streams across platforms.

The Background:

The Chicago-born, Miami-raised rapper and producer Smokepurpp has been one of the cornerstones of Florida’s burgeoning rap scene since the release of his “Ski Mask” video in 2015. The buzz from the video and other singles with close friend Lil Pump culminated in a record deal with Alamo/Interscope Records and Travis Scott’s Cactus Jack Records. The 21-year old Purpp quickly went to work, collaborating with Scott, Yo Gotti, Pump, and more. His debut release, Deadstar, spawned the gold-certified single “Audi” and generated features from The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Pigeons & Planes, XXL, Mass Appeal, and many more. The follow up release, Bless Yo Trap, was a collaboration with Grammy-nominated producer Murda Beatz, boasted the standout single “123” and collaborations with Lil YachtyOffset, and A$AP Ferg. 2018 has been a banner year for Purpp so far, thanks to his selection on the 2018 XXL Freshman list, the release of “Nephew,” his Gold-certified collaboration with Lil Pump, which has over 100M streams across all platforms, and “I Love It,” the Kanye West and Pump collaboration which Purpp co-wrote and debuted at number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100. After delighting his fans with the Lost Planet EP in April, Purpp closed 2020 out with the highly-anticipated Deadstar 2. Look for his next project, Florida Jit, to arrive in June.
