EDITORS’ NOTES

Deadstar, the debut mixtape from Smokepurpp, stakes its claim on rumbling, low-end-fueled trap jams, with the Lil Pump-affiliated Miami rapper narcotically waxing about his self-destructive tendencies in a tone that’s halfway between swaggering and manic depressive. “Audi.” bounces on an unbelievably distorted bassline courtesy of producer Ronny J, while “Fingers Blue” pairs Purpp with his label boss Travis Scott, both chanting the Benjamin-stacking refrain over a moody, speaker-destroying keyboard lick.
