SpaceGhostPurrp's Mysterious Phonk: The Chronicles of SpaceGhostPurrp is one of my favorite album releases this year. As a fellow '90s kid, I've long been a fan of Purrp's skewed production techniques and '90s referencing sample drops (Seriously, "Whoopsie" from Mortal Kombat is just great). Blackland Raider Klan, aka Rvidxxr Klvn, are a crew that includes Purrp and a score of his rapper/producer cohorts. It's a bit difficult for me to keep up with all of the members of BRK, but their new "greatest hits" collection, 2.7.5. Greatest Hits Vol. 1, seeks to formally introduce us to the key players of Raider Klan across 47 tracks spanning two-and-a-half hours. It's almost shocking how many members stand out across the tape; Ethelwulf, Slim Guerilla, Chris Travis, Amber London, Key Nyata, N3LL, Simmie, J-Green, Eddy Baker, GrandMilly and Sky Lexington all manage to leave their mark, and that's not even the entirety of it. The slowed down southern style already prevalent in S.G.P.'s beats is what ends up really tying the entire mixtape together, as that screwed vibes oozes across all of 2.7.5. It's a girthy mixtape, but it's packed with solid tracks that make sure things never get stale.
