Sharing his thoughts, Smokepurpp said, "For sure Post Malone because he was like the first artist to actually blow up on SoundCloud," he said.
The 'Dirty Dirty' rapper went on to add, "He was the first artist to really go big like that from SoundCloud. And f***ing X [XXXTentacion] for sure. I feel like X played a big part." Smokepurpp also picked himself in the top 3.
Since sharing their music on SoundCloud, Smokepurpp's picks Post Malone and XXXTentacion have gone on to have huge success in the music industry, bringing in billions of streams and video views between them.
XXXTentacion was tragically killed back in 2018, however his team released a posthumous album 'Bad Vibes Forever' at the end of 2019, one week before Smokepurpp's debut studio album 'Deadstar 2'.
