Earlier this week, news broke that SpaceGhostPurrp was officially done with the “rap” game via his Facebook. Now, anyone that goes to dude’s Facebook page knows that he posts some questionable/weird shit like every other day. But this one seemed legit and judging by his new interview with Complex, he’s serious about it. But here’s the thing: that it refers to him being done with RAPPING. Interesting.
You can read Purrp’s response to being asked if he’s really retiring below:
The thing about that…all I’m going to say is it’s up to the people. I can make music for me all I want. At the end of the day, though, it’s for the people. If the people want me to come back, then I’ll come back. If the people don’t appreciate me—as an artist, period, just as a person putting out music, not even as a person trying to be better than nobody else; just regular old Marquise—then I’ll stop rapping.
But it’s up to them, man. What I’ve been seeing lately, I haven’t been feeling the appreciation. I feel like…I don’t see myself as a rapper. I’m not a rapper, I’m not a person who’s gonna sit here and battle-rap rappers, or when people get on TV and disrespect me. Where I’m from in Florida, we don’t do that. You never seen Trick Daddy battling somebody else. Never did you see real, big-time gangster rappers from Florida doing that. We don’t roll like that down here. I’m not even saying I’m a gangster; I’m Marquis Rolle, that’s who I am. I’m not fit to be that type of person, so before the world look at me as some posing-ass rapper who just sits on the Internet all day, and they feel I don’t mean anything I say…I mean everything I say, and I know I’m the most realest person to myself I could ever be. So before a person could even assume that [I'm not real], I don’t want no part of the rap shit, man. That’s just not in my blood.
The Floridian went on to say he’s not done producing, which is most definitely great news. You can read the full interview at Complex.
