Download Smokepurpp & Murda Beatz – 123 MP3
Smokepurpp and producer Murda Beatz have cooked up an entire body of work together, and for the past week or so, they’ve been teasing the collaborative tape’s first drop, a single titled “123.” Although they’ve been promoting a Friday release, they’ve decided to drop it a day early on Soundcloud so all ears are free to listen, worldwide. Shout out to that.
The song’s production is definitely a highlight (it is Murda Beatz after all), with Murda creating a lean-like soundscape; the constant, elongated flute sound seems to embody the idea of lean’s slow drip. Meanwhile, Purpp delivers a relatively simple rhyme scheme, with a punctuated flow.
