The highly stylized cinematic clip nods directly to the 2005 big screen epic Sin City. In the visual directed by ROCK and EGG, Ski Mask The Slump God dons a suit with pure hitman swagger and exacts revenge on a list of enemies, crossing them out one at a time with each successive kill gorier than the last. It stands out as his biggest and boldest video to date.
Right out of the gate, Sin City The Mixtape bowed in the Top 40 of the Billboard Top 200. Plus, it vaulted into the Top 20 of the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart, marking his second Top 20 debut on the respective chart. Not to mention, it soared to #3 on the Spotify Charts Top 10 USA Album Debuts.
Additionally, it garnered widespread acclaim. Pitchfork hailed him as a rapper’s rapper, with a dense chopper flow, and promised, If you look hard enough, you can hear his sincerity, struggle, and pain. HYPEBEAST celebrated the project as filled with the same kind of wild and menacing energy that Robert Rodriguez’s adaptation is comprised of, and HotNewHipHop raved, his familiar aggressive delivery is on full display. UPROXX urged, with such a tight concept and sharp execution, it’s not one to be overlooked, but XXL put it best, It’s comeback season for Ski Mask The Slump God
Sin City The Mixtape notably marks his first body of work since 2018’s chart-topping gold-certified Stokeley. Living up to its namesake, he rips through these nine tracks with all the frenetic energy, ominous unpredictability, and epic scope of the Robert Rodriguez adaptation of Frank Miller’s classic graphic novel Sin City. Once again, his verbal acrobatics steal the show as he perverts pop culture references into pummeling rhymes on the likes of the single Admit It where Reptilian and Alice In Wonderland breathe the same contaminated air. Intro pairs a cracking, yet intimate vocal over the hum of a defibrillator, while clean guitar bleeds into an X-Men-worthy barrage on Mental Magneto and the acoustic Lost In Time spins depression into melodic bliss.
Check out the full tracklisting below.
Last year, Ski Mask The Slump God dropped the protest-anthem Burn The Hoods. The politically charged banger amassed north of 70 million streams thus far. Picking up critical acclaim, NPR claimed it captured the defiant, cathartic energy of a crowd of people tearing down a statue of a Confederate general.
