Having toured Australia just last year, cousins Ruby da Cherry and $lick $loth, aka $UICIDEBOY$, are a dark blend of horrorcore glitch-trap beats, booming basslines and occultish, drugged-out rhymes, making waves around the world with their truly unique mix of synth-laden beats and misanthropic, dark verses.
Growing up together, Ruby and $lick shared very different tastes in music; Ruby taking lessons from Minor Threat, Leftover Crack and The Misfits, while $lick (aka Suicide Christ) pursued the art of turntablism, while honing his skills as a songwriter. Worlds collided as the New Orleans rap duo joined their creative forces in 2014 to form the juggernaut that is $UICIDEBOY$.
$UICIDEBOY$ then set about claiming the crown of ‘hardest working two-piece in the game’. Hard work and talent saw them swiftly noticed by G59 Records who signed them to get to work releasing the ambitious 2016 ten-part album series, “Kill Your$elf”, to the praise of the hip-hop underworld. Back from the road with SXSW and a slew of international shows under their belt, the boys aren’t messing around, recording close to 30 EP’s and albums in only two years. Their 29th release, “Radical $uicide” arrived in July 2016 and quickly gained attention peaking at #17 on the Billboard Rap Charts.
Their forthcoming album, “I Want To Die In New Orleans”, led by their loose new single ‘Carrollton’, intertwines their typically bleak images of depression and horror with helpless indulgences in wealth – set to drop on September 7.
Don’t miss your chance to catch the future of hip-hop and trap music live this January.
