Miami's own SpaceGhostPurrp won us over with his swaggy slab Blvcklvnd Rvdix 66.6, which we hailed as one of the best albums of 2011.

Now, he's back with a new video, showing off the streets that raised him for new single, "Tha Black God."

The video is sorta standard, hitting all the necessary requirements -- cars, cash, hoes, gangsta grills, etc. But it's local! So let's take a closer look at the gospel of Ghost.

0:00 - 0:26

The crickets let us know it's very late at night. The graffiti lets us know these trouble-makers are strollin' through Wynwood. There's a game of poker going on, and lyrics indicate SpaceGhostPurrp is undergoing an ego transformation of epic proportions.

0:27 - 0:30

Aerial shots of our great city, woo! Can you see us waving?

0:31 - 0:40

SpaceGhostPurrp and his homies are riding around and getting it. This car they've got is superfancy. Because ghost gods don't ride around like mere mortals.

0:41 - 1:00

This poker game is trill serious. Watch as Purrp handles more money than we'll see all month. The car is still sexy.

1:01 - 1:10

It wouldn't be Miami if there wasn't a stripper bitch. Also, how effing shiny is his grill? The shiniest, right?

1:11 - 1:19

Now the crew is chillin' on a rooftop, so as to get the best view of their kingdom. They flick off the camera because they're not playing.

1:20 - 1:26

Purrp is a god. So he gets mad goddesses, like this Ms. Fat Booty right here.

1:27 - 1:50

Lest you've forgotten, Purrp is no longer a black man. He looks the camera dead in the eye and lets us know.

1:51 - 2:22

We get a nice recap of all the things that the boys have done tonight ... Strollin' through Wynwood, driving in that fancy car, smoking on rooftops, just chillin' like gods. You know, nothing too crazy. But Tha Black God is a merciful god, and he reminds us to keep positive. Werd up, Purrp.
