SpaceGhostPurrp can be a prickly dude. He's so young, smart, and deep. And all that online attitude. You can't help but envy him his complexity and talent and resent what sometimes comes off as a sense of entitlement.

But when we met up with the Carol City rapper at Ultra Music Festival where he performed a Sunday noon set, we definitely didn't meet a guy who thinks the world owes him something. It's hard to get onstage, at noon at a rave, and take it all very seriously and professionally, but he did.

Purrp seemed shy or hesitant when we started bombarding him with questions about the sexual attractiveness of Scooby-Doo characters, his tattoos, and April Fool's Day, which is his birthday, also known as Purrp Day to those of the Raider Klan.
