Smokepurpp names the two as SoundCloud’s most impactful artists.
Sitting down for a video interview with HipHopDX, Smokepurpp noted that he wasn’t instrumental in bringing the streaming service to the forefront. There were stars both before and after him that helped him do so. When asked who the most impactful SoundCloud artists of all time are, Purpp started with an obvious choice.
“For sure Post Malone because he was like the first artist to actually blow up on SoundCloud,” he said. “He was the first artist to really go big like that from SoundCloud. And fucking [XXXTentacion] for sure. I feel like X played a big part.”
Of course, Purpp named himself as the third most impactful SoundCloud artist of his generation. Do you agree with his picks? They seem pretty solid.
