Rapper SpaceGhostPurrp likes making things difficult.
His aversion to vowels renders his album cover almost unreadable, and his taste for industrial noise renders his backing tracks almost unlistenable. But after a while, the sticky, repetitive swirls work their hypnotic magic: they're like The Bomb Squad mired in depression rather than revolution. His murmured intimacies lend the seven-minute gangsta tale "No Evidence" an air of real menace, and elsewhere starkly convey the desensitised attitude to sexuality in tracks like "Grind on Me".
