It’s hard to believe folks when they say they will retire, especially if they’re as young as 21 like he is, but SpaceGhostPurrp, the emerging gothic rapper and proudcer from Miami whose probably best known for creating the beat to A\$AP Rocky’s “Pretty Flacko”, has announced on Facebook that he is quitting as a marquee act.

UPDATE: In this Complex interview, he clarified his stance, saying that if he feels his audience wants him to stay, he’ll continue rapping, but as of now he hasn’t “been feeling the appreciation.”
