$UICIDEBOY$ are a rap duo from the city of New Orleans. The group consists of $crim and Ruby Da Cherry, two cousins who grew up in the 7th Ward of New Orleans. Their work is released through their label G*59 Recordsnote .
The group is known for their bleak lyrics (A product of $crim's drug addiction and Ruby's depression) and dark instrumentals, heavily influenced by 90s Memphis scene acts such as Three Six Mafia, early Cash Money, trap music and even hardcore punk.
Despite only having existed for a few years, they've amassed a surprisingly large discography and a large fanbase, with 36 EPs and 6 mixtapes and an upcoming album, not to mention collaborations with such artists as Music/Getter, Denzel Curry, JGRXXN and Juicy J.
Tropes related to the boys:
- Careful with That Axe: They're not above using screamed vocals at all.
- Darker and Edgier: Compared to their other Trap Music contemporaries, they are very much this.
- Driven to Suicide: A recurring theme in their works, which shouldn't come a surprise considering their name.

- Idiosyncratic Episode Naming: Their KILL YOUR$ELF SAGA series of releases has their chapters entitled "The Something Saga".
- Shout-Out: They're really big fans of Three Six Mafia, frequently sampling their songs.
- Trope Codifier: Along with Ghostemane and Ho99o9, they are this for the Soundcloud horrorcore style.
