$uicideboy$ – “I WANT TO DIE IN NEW ORLEANS” review

The $uicideboy$ are a hip hop duo from New Orleans, Louisiana consisting of Ruby da Cherry & $crim. Since their formation in 2013, they have dropped a total of 8 mixtapes & 19 EPs. However, they are at last delivering their full-length debut.

Things start off with “King Tulip”, where the duo talk about fame & thoughts of suicide over a gloomy trap beat. The next song “Bring Out Your Dead” talks about killing this hoe over a bass-heavy trap beat while the track “Nicotine Patches” talks about their dying days over a trap beat with some chimes in the background. The song “10,000 Degrees” gets murderous over an ominous beat with a funky bass-line while the track “122 Days” talks about being true yourself over a spacey instrumental.

The song “Phantom Menace” reminisces about the duo’s early days over an eerie instrumental from none other than Juicy J while the track “Krewe du Vieux (Comedy & Tragedy)” is a short yet gritty description of Nawlins over a somber trap beat. The song “WAR TIME ALL THE TIME” gets confrontational over rattling hi-hats & monstrous bass while the track “Coma” vents about depression with an flawless sample of Kreepin’ Out da Kut” by Playa Fly.

The song “Long Gone (Save Me from This Hell)” continues the theme of the previous track over a moody trap beat while the song “Meet Mr. NICEGUY” is mediocre melodic breakup tune with a distorted guitar. The song “Carrollton” gets confrontational once again over an abrasive beat while the penultimate track “Fuck the Industry” pretty much speaks for itself over a spacey trap beat. The album then closes out with the 8 minute “I No Longer Fear the Razor Guarding My Hell IV”, where the duo get introspective & the beat switches are amazing!

I’ve been waiting for the duo to drop their debut album for quite some time & this did not disappoint. The duo continue to modernize the Three 6 Mafia’s signature sound & it really enhances the gritty lyricism more than ever.

Score: 4/5
