Smokepurpp is back with the visuals for his latest single, “To the Moon.” Directed by RaheemIsBlind, the trippy video finds the rapper in the strip club before reappearing in an airplane with a cup lean in hand.
With a melodic beat as the background, Purpp ends up in the strip club again, but it’s not long before we see him back on the plane after zoning out. The video continues to show shots the Miami-bred, Chicago-born in and out the strip club as he appears to be in a trance.
According to Smokepurpp, the “To the Moon” video was his way to give a glimpse into his life instead telling a story. “I told RaheemIsBlind to just capture me in my natural element and fuse all it together,” he said. “Because my lifestyle most this was super random and filmed late at night.”
The 19-year-old rapper is set to drop his mixtape, DEADSTAR, on Sept. 29. Ahead the project’s release, Smokepurpp spoke with XXL about his goals in hip-hop. While Purpp would love to have a No. 1 record, he also wants people to know he isn’t just a rapper.
“I want to do everything,” he said. “I want to do commercials, endorsements. I want to design. I designed this belt. This is my own belt. I’m not gonna sell them yet. I rolled out some merch; it sold out in 10 minutes.”
Signed to Alamo Records, Smokepurpp broke onto the scene in 2016, thanks to his songs “Sam$ung Jumpin,” “Ski Mask” and “No Smoke.” The rapper has since worked with Juicy J and has been spotted in the studio with Travis Scott.
