Deadstar

In this regard, thinking about Deadstar to any critical extent could certainly be said to miss the point of the mixtape. What is an issue, however, is the fact that, across the 18 tracks that comprise Deadstar, Smokepurpp makes little effort to vary his style whatsoever, to the point that, as the mixtape lurches further into its 48-minute runtime, it becomes a rather mind-numbing listen. After becoming one of the most popular rappers on audio distribution platform SoundCloud, Miami-based rapper Smokepurpp signed to Interscope imprint Alamo Records in 2017. Deadstar features guest appearances from Chief Keef, Juicy J, Travis Scott, and frequent collaborator Lil Pump, among others. It was released on September 29, 2017, by , and.

On Purpp's album cover, he's seen in a coffin, surrounded by a newspaper clipping, photos of himself, alcohol and a lean bottle. However, none of the songs are confirmed at this stage so who will feature is still mostly speculation. . His long-promised debut mixtape, Deadstar, dropped in late September, following several delays. What is the cover art going to be? This mimics an infamous photo of the punk rocker at his funeral.

Unfortunately, however, no such glimmers of hope show up across the course of Deadstar, with the mixtape being mindless through and through from a lyrical standpoint. Just as many may criticise the current trend of smoky, atmospheric trap for offering little more than some obscure, wispy vibes, the brand of uber-abrasive trap music found across much of Deadstar can be boiled down to a general feeling of aggression and instability, rather than anything especially engaging or substantial from a musical standpoint. With so many of the front runners in the contemporary trap scene opting for an opulent, glitzy production style, syrupy smooth deliveries and an overall ethereal tone to their music that is primarily centred around capturing a particular atmosphere rather than any degree of artistic depth, the current upsurge in the popularity and prevalence of a new breed of Floridian SoundCloud trap artists, which favours abrasive, overblown beats and aggressive, minimalist flows, could be said to be a natural counterbalance to the prevailing force of mainstream trap music. Also, there are high-profiled artists such as Lil Yachty and Swae Lee on there too. Allin died in 1993 due to a heroin overdose, was photographed at his funeral in his coffin, with a bottle of Jim Bean and newspaper clippings surround him, his corpse unwashed, wearing his leather jacket and jock strap a trademark of his. The release's cover is an homage to infamous shock rocker G.

Once again, nothing is confirmed! Of course, this is by no means a problem in itself, as a minimalist set-up is integral to the Floridian SoundCloud aesthetic.
