Los Angeles rapper Pure ETC presents Stilleto Stoner, the new single from his forthcoming EP Water and Sound. Pure has opened for Busta Rhymes and Rick Ross, and recently signed a distribution deal with InGrooves Fontana/Universal. He describes his style as “vintage Hip Hop with a twist of lime. The 4 tenants of hip hop are peace, love, unity, and having fun, and this is what I want people to feel when they hear my music.” “Stiletto Stoner” is produced by Dallas-bred, NYC-based Breahlyn Marquez, currently working with Styles P and Aftermath artist John Connor. “I wanted to expand on that theme of the working woman who smokes,” says Pure regarding “Stoner”, which he says “expands on the idea that weed is becoming accepted by the mainstream and people don’t have to be shamed to not smoke. This song is about that successful woman who throws it down in all areas of her life, and still can kick back and smoke freely.” Water and Sound is set to drop late spring.
