Spaceghostpurrp on Being Compared to Odd Future, Not Dissing the Taylor Gang, and Why Miami is Satan's Playground
Is it because there's such a focus on the superficial in Miami?
It's wack. People think they're too cool. They don't take shit serious. The only n*gga doin' shit down here is Rick Ross. We all know that. We all know Rick Ross is not a drug dealer, but he's still making good music, so we don't give a fuck. We all know Brisco is a fake. We all know there's no way in hell Trick Daddy's coming back soon. JT Money, he's all right now, he's chillin'. Trina, she's washed up. What is she trying to do that's different? If she ain't fucking with me, she needs to go sit down. I've seen her so many times in the studio, and she doesn't wanna do anything. She'll know my name when she sees me on TV.
What's the reception of your music down there?
Some know about my shit, but some don't, because remember, it first got played in L.A. So it's just now hitting the east coast.
When did it first get played out here?
I think it was last year when I released that Nasa shit. I hated Nasa, but I support myself so much--I did Nasa at the last minute. There was a deadline at my studio; I only had three days to do it. So I had one week to write the whole ten songs, and three days to record it. So I rushed through that shit. But people still felt it, and I was like, ok, wait 'till they get to see what I really am.
How did you meet Kreayshawn?
We've been friends for three years. Of course we met through Twitter. I started following her, and she followed me back, and I was like, oh, shit! That's for real. Next thing you know, Lil B stopped fucking with her after that Nico shit, 'cause she didn't have some fight with Nico. I was like, what the fuck? Kreayshawn ain't even stand 5 feet.
Anyway, we could've had this Based tour--me, Kreayshawn, Lil B, Odd Future--that's money, you feel me?
I'm just speaking how I feel. I don't got a problem with Lil B--I don't know him. I fuck with his music. Like last year, on that Based shit. But all this I'm Gay Volume 3? I don't fuck with that shit; he can have that. Telling Kanye he gonna fuck him in the ass?
Lil B, I don't know him, people need to stop comparing me to him even though I fuck with the Based movement. People compare me to Tyler too! But what the fuck?
Tyler's music is heavier, more grounded. You have the perfect moniker. The influence of lean is unmistakable--spacey, weird, that deranged cartoon aspect. Yours is extraterrestrial, with more bounce, of course, being from the South--
You know Syd played "Suck a Dick" at a show of theirs I saw.
I saw the video of that show, and was like, shit, they swagged me out!
But again, your personalities, at least on Twitter, are really opposite--you reply to everybody, you retweet all your fans. You are a part of your people.
That's how all Aries are. We don't give a fuck; we love music. We put our awareness in our music. And without the fans you ain't shit. I fuck with Odd Future because that's how I'd be if I had a group of friends, but I don't hang with people like that. I keep my circle tight. But their shit is dope as fuck.
