SpaceGhostPurrp Leaves His Retirement To His Fans

News

SpaceGhostPurrp has clarified that he will be retiring from the hip-hop scene, but he’ll leave it to his fans to decide.

SpaceGhostPurrp has shocked fans about his recent announcement of his intentions to retire from the hip-hop scene. He even stated that the hip-hop scene is a “shady ass rap game.” In a recent interview with Complex, SpaceGhostPurrp has clarified that he does want to leave the hip-hop game, since it’s not worth it anymore.

He has also explained that he isn’t completing sold on the idea of retiring, stating that if his fans want him to continue on music, he will continue. SpaceGhostPurrp however decided that if he does quit as an emcee he will continue being a strict producer for music. He stated that he isn’t built to deal with the typical life of a rapper, since he has been under appreciated.

“The thing about that…all I’m going to say is it’s up to the people,” he said. “I can make music for me all I want. At the end of the day, though, it’s for the people. If the people want me to come back, then I’ll come back. If the people don’t appreciate me—as an artist, period, just as a person putting out music, not even as a person trying to be better than nobody else; just regular old Marquise—then I’ll stop rapping. But it’s up to them, man…I been saying that I’m not feeling this rap scene, though, so I’m just gonna make beats from now on.”

He continued, “What I’ve been seeing lately, I haven’t been feeling the appreciation. I feel like…I don’t see myself as a rapper. I’m not a rapper, I’m not a person who’s gonna sit here and battle-rap rappers, or when people get on TV and disrespects me. Where I’m from in Florida, we don’t do that. You never seen Trick Daddy battling somebody else. Never did you see real, big-time gangster rappers from Florida doing that. We don’t roll like that down here. I’m not even saying I’m a gangster; I’m Marquis Rolle, that’s who I am. I’m not fit to be that type of person, so before the world look at me as some posing-ass rapper who just sits on the Internet all day, and they feel I don’t mean anything I say…I mean everything I say, and I know I’m the most realest person to myself I could ever be. So before a person could even assume that I’m not real, I don’t want no part of the rap shit, man. That’s just not in my blood.”
