Short of living under a rock for the past several weeks, the current COVID-19 pandemic has created a ripple effect the that has sent shockwaves of fear to every corner of the globe; literally. With that said, athletes, actors, musicians and everyday common folk alike are in the midst of city-wide lockdowns and self-isolation stints, pushing many of them deeper into their own creative craft.

Confined to his own enclosed quarters, Smokepurpp is the latest artist to join the “Coronavirus Diss” wave. The Chicago-bred rapper took advantage of some necessitated downtime, and has since dropped off “F*CK CORONA U AINT STOPPING SH*T (EXCUSE ME).” Subtle sounds of tickled ivory set the mood, with the rapper laying down his signature syrupy flows over top. As many would expect, Smokepurpp can be heard tapping into his “SoundCloud Rap” bag, while playing up his braggadocious state of mind. Purpp makes no mention of the virus itself, choosing instead to address things he can control, namely, his ultra-lavish way of life.
