20 of the Best Lyrics From Smokepurpp and Murda Beatz’s ‘Bless Yo Trap’ Project
Sometime over the last year and change, South Florida's own Smokepurpp and Ontario-bred producer Murda Beatz broke bread in the studio for the first time. On Friday (April 13), the two released Bless Yo Trap, their first project as hip-hop's newest ultra-talented rapper-producer duo.
At just 23 minutes, Bless Yo Trap is about as svelte as rap projects come. Still, it's heavy with Murda's hypnotic production and effortlessly cool bars from Purpp, who continues his rise to stardom with the project.
While a lot of rappers sound great over Murda Beatz's production, few work it quite like Purpp. With an easygoing flow, the 20-year-old rapper adds a layer of calm confidence to every song and adjusts to beat switches seamlessly, making his best bars feel like micro-climaxes on hammering production. The project is light on guest features—only Lil Yachty, Offset and A$AP Ferg join in for the festivities—but Lil Purpp and Murda Beatz's chemistry is palpable.
Speaking with XXL about the recording of Bless Yo Trap, Purpp and Murda said they brought out the best in each other.
"Honestly, he's helped me find a certain sound," Smokepurpp said of his production co-pilot Murda Beatz earlier this month. "He gave me some crazy-ass presets to record with. Once he gave me that, I really found a specific sound. Low key, making this project, he helped shape how I'm making music now."
"We're gonna bless a bunch of traps with this," Murda added.
