Who is Captain Murphy? This is a question a lot of people will be mulling over in the coming months. The mysterious rapper first appeared on “Between Friends” alongside Flying Lotus and Odd Future’s semiautomatic spitter Earl Sweatshirt, and today he releases a solo record called “The Ritual.”

Rumors and speculation have already began to surface online that Murphy could either be the secret alias of Flying Lotus himself or even a pitch shifted Tyler The, Creator, although the lyrical content just doesn’t feel like something the latter would put out. Whoever this lurking emcee is, he’s starting to garner some attention and going in over a sample of Jay Electronica x Just Blaze‘s track “Dear Moleskine” will only help to further pique people’s interests.
