With so many huge acts in and out of our doors, it’s easy to forget those that are out there, tirelessly working their way up to the top who deserve your attention. This week, we’re putting the spotlight on New Orleans’ hip hop duo $uicideboy$.
$lick and Ruby Da Cherry, otherwise known as $uicideboy$ are one of hottest acts in hip-hop right now and having recently dropped five new chapters in their Kill Yourself Saga, they’re earning a respected name for themselves due to their unusual and creative musical style.
Taking influence from a wide range of places, from punk and metal bands such as Misfits and Slayer, to their idols in Three 6 Mafia, the complex mix of genres has allowed them to cross boundaries and not be thrown in a pigeon hole with other rappers. Their writing and hard work is clearly paying off, with original Three 6 member Juicy J recruiting them for production duties on his latest record, with their efforts shown in single ‘Freaky’.
With a horror aesthetic and lyrical content that taps into the darkest of psyches, $uicideboy$ are not your original hip hop stars. Their live shows are chaotic and their fanbase insanely dedicated, and its tracks like ‘Paris’ and ‘2nd Hand’ which have catapulted them into the spotlight.
