Having joined forces in 2014, the prolific $uicideboy$, a.k.a. Ruby da Cherry, a gentleman with punk rock roots, and $lick $loth, former DJ and songwriter, they have become a staple in the spheres of horrorcore glitch-trap bubbling with booming bass, ominous atmospherics, and occultish, drugged-out rhymes.

In a live scenario and before a sold out crowd, their set is reminiscent of a more condensed and to-the-core version of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony peppered with streaks of Three 6 Mafia and based on a solid foundation of heavy sub bass, while retaining their own flavour and signature style:

Short bursts of trapped out bleak and grimy cloud rap sounds adorned with violent and grim lyrical content and delivered in a style that marries grungy cadences and leany, sizzurped fluid flow transitions, which was enthusiastically celebrated by the Sydney crowd.

While some of the $uicideboyS’ emissions take at times pages from the books of metal and punk, even their more traditional trap songs evoke crowd reaction that resemble in many aspects a traditional hardcore show, with crowd surfing, the occasional wall of death, mosh pitting and obligatory finger pointing singalongs, which is amplified by the stage antics and the way the two MCs work the crowd.

It is the mélange of their vocal flows that drone together while covering death, suicide, plans for suicide, drugs, violence and more of the aforementioned in combination with the interesting sound sequences that creates the twisted realm they capture their willing audience in and makes them an act you want to check out if you have a remote interest in cloud rap and trap of the more intense kind.
