$UICIDEBOY$ 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 $crim's drug addiction and Ruby's depression) and dark instrumentals, heavily influenced by 90s Memphis scene acts such as Three 6 Mafia, early Cash Money, trap music and even hardcore punk.
Despite only having existed for a few years, they've amassed a surprisingly large discography and a large fanbase, with 36 EPs and 6 mixtapes and an upcoming album, not to mention collaborations with such artists as Music/Getter, Denzel Curry, JGRXXN and Juicy J.
Tropes related to the boys:
- A God Am I: A frequent theme in their music, with both Ruby and Scrim variously describing feelings of godlike power, notable in songs such as Exodus.
- Careful with That Axe: They're not above using screamed vocals at all.
- Darker and Edgier: Compared to their other Trap Music contemporaries, they are very much this.
- Demonic Possession: Described graphically in the song VIVIVI.
- Driven to Suicide: A recurring theme in their works, which shouldn't come a surprise considering their name.
- Horrorcore: Though they don't seem to care for the label.
- Idiosyncratic Episode Naming: Their KILL YOUR$ELF SAGA series of releases has their chapters entitled "The Something Saga".
- Shout-Out: They're really big fans of Three 6 Mafia, frequently sampling their songs.
- Trope Codifier: Along with Ghostemane and Ho99o9, they are this for the Soundcloud horrorcore style.
