Purp: Kevin Gates, Big Krit, William Singe and myself of course.. lol
IMN: What made you want to pursue a career in entertainment?

IMN: What should we be looking for in the future from Purp?
Purp: I’m currently working on a few mixtapes and also an EP. Be on the lookout for UGR with Rico Banks and also I’ve reached out to Nerdy Derdy. We got a project called “OffBeat” that I think will be a blast and also show people a different side of us both.
IMN: Do you have any last words?
Purp: Don’t Sleep On Me!!!
