Born in London, raised in Edmonton, Canada the 20-year-old singing MC 80purppp is blessed with a smooth, gentle voice that distinguished him from the DIY-rap pack on his breezy breakthrough single, “Hex”, and his 2021 chill yet funky jam “Corazón”. 80 continues to surprise and impress on his most recent 2022 released EP’s - the meaningful & potent “If Anything” and the sublime “Je Sais”. Amassing over +275 million on demand streams across platforms worldwide, 80 has created an air of mystery and anticipation, as fans don’t know exactly what to expect next from the artist. His newly released song “uni” is sure to give listeners a better understanding of who 80 is, as well as deepen the conversation of his artistry.
