Pi’erre Bourne is one of the new wave’s core influencers for a reason. His trademark rage-inducing, atmospheric beats have become a staple for our generation’s rising talent — impressing once more as a lyricist at the premiere of Good Movie.
The new 23-track record not only further solidifies Pi’erre’s presence as one of the game’s most polished producer-rappers, but puts his curation skills at the forefront of his artistry. On The Life of Pi’erre 5, each beat seamlessly cascaded into the next — cutting together another cinematic experience on GM.
Dropping on Friday (Sept. 2), Bourne initially rolled out the LP by sharing its “theme song” on Aug. 26. Additionally, his collaborations with Don Toliver — who appeared alongside Bourne in previous IG teasers for the track’s video — and Young Nudy highlight the rage-rap pioneer’s Hollywood-inspired album.
Bourne is also prepping to hit the road for his “Good Movie World Tour” this month. Kicking off at the House Of Blues on Sept. 6 in Houston, Texas, the tour’s international leg will visit foreign countries in Germany, UK, Sweden, Australia, France and more. The “GM World Tour” will span for three months, ending on Dec. 17 in Auckland, New Zealand.
Finishing off TLOP’s “The Purple Tour” in May, Pi’erre is wholeheartedly appreciating the success he’s garnered from The Life of Pi’erre 5 — his previous solo album which features Playboi Carti, Lil Uzi Vert and Sharc. Also connecting with TM88 on their joint effort Yo!88 in 2021, Bourne has truly been on a roll in recent years.
Similarly, Pi’erre has made it a point lately to put on for the newer acts of his SOSSHOUSE imprint, appearing alongside J Billz and Kura for fantastic first offerings to their discography. Kura’s rock-infused “Hold It Up” sees Pi’erre in a production bag fans aren’t used to, as other SOSSHOUSE signees Sharc and Chavo had their recent projects handled by Bourne.
With TLOP5 and Yo!88 in the rearview, SOSSBOY’s GM era not only incorporates the sonic elements he’s been screening with the label’s newcomers, but fleshes it out with a more focused outlook — ultimately crafting the Good Movie he’s directed from the start.
