$uicideboy$ dig light out of the deepest corners of darkness, addiction, hopelessness, and pain. The New Orleans-bred duo of cousins-Scott Arcenaux, Jr. a.k.a. $crim and Aristos Petrou a.k.a. Ruby da Cherry-translate a fight against demons (seen and unseen) into a clever, caustic, and corrosively catchy apocalyptic vision of underground hip-hop pierced with punk intensity and laced with laidback Southern flows.
The world first met $uicideboy$ in 2014. After dozens of projects and hundreds of sold-out shows, they’ve generated billions of streams and earned multiple RIAA certifications, including the platinum “…And To Those I Love, Thanks For Sticking Around” and gold “Carrollton,” “2nd Hand,” “Runnin’ Thru The 7th With My Woadies,” “Paris,” and “Kill Yourself (Part III).”
They also emerged as the rare force of nature equally suited to collaborate with Travis Barker and Juicy J or members of Korn. Beyond acclaim from Pigeons and Planes, Hypebeast, XXL, Revolver, and Billboard, they built G*59 into a bastion of independent talent and home to Night Lovell, Shakewell, Germ, Ramirez, and more. The group logged 183 straight weeks on Rolling Stone’s Top 500 Popular Artists Chart, while 2021’s Long Term Effects of SUFFERING bowed at #7 on the Billboard Top 200 as their second Top 10 entry.
Of the latter, Pitchfork declared, “the group’s past tapestries of violence have given way to more genuinely felt songs.” Now, the platinum-certified arena headliner come out on the other side of hell with a clear message encoded at the heart of their third full-length LP, Sing Me A Lullaby, My Sweet Temptation [G*59 Records].
