Ski Mask the Slump God – Sin City the Mixtape

Returning with extreme intensity, critically acclaimed multi-platinum Florida spitter Ski Mask The Slump God is back with a brand new project entitled Sin City The Mixtape via Victor Victor Worldwide/Republic Records.

It 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.”

About Ski Mask The Slump God

Since emerging from the darkest corners of South Florida back in 2015, Ski Mask The Slump God has consistently pushed the limits of hip-hop with his lyrical dexterity, rhythmic unpredictability, and elite wordplay. He asserts himself as a rare rap force who defies categories and eras with unapologetic attitude and boss-level skill. Following a string of buzzing mixtapes, he seized #6 on the Billboard Top 200 with his 2018 full-length debut, Stokeley [Victor Victor Worldwide/Republic Records], which received acclaim from Pitchfork, XXL, and NME. Along the way, he also logged five platinum singles—“Catch Me Outside,” “Take A Step Back,” “Nuketown,” “Babywipe,” and “Foot Fungus”—in addition to the double-platinum banger “Faucet Failure.” Simultaneously, he dropped multiple joint tracks with the late XXXTentacion and collaborated with the likes of Lil Yachty, Higher Brothers, Denzel Curry, J. Cole’s DreamVille, and many more. Meanwhile, he made a statement in 2020 with the incendiary banger “Burn The Hoods,” which garnered praise from Complex and more. After gathering 3 billion-plus streams, Ski Mask The Slump God adds another dimension to his dynamic, dark, and deep world with the 2021 Sin City The Mixtape.

YSB TRIL × BANKROL HAYDEN – TOUCHDOWN

YSB TRIL & BANKROL HAYDEN DITCH FOOTBALL PRACTICE IN NEW VIDEO “TOUCHDOWN” 

After unleashing his thrilling video “Ain’t The Same,” Tril tag-teams with Bankrol Hayden for their explosive anthem “Touchdown.” Directed by Rick Lancaster, “Touchdown” is a bouncy anthem highlighting the pair’s late-night escapades. Shot in Los Angeles, the young tandem ditch football practice to have fun with some spry, athletic women. Looking to cause mischief around town with his paintball gun, Tril’s steely confidence and sticky hook sets the tempo for this lively collaboration. Watch HERE.

For its first full week, “Touchdown” recently passed 500K global streams to-date on Spotify and was featured on a bevy of playlists including Hip-Hop Mixtape, Most Necessary, Signed XOXO and NMF. After its release, the record also went as high as No. 2 on SoundCloud’s New and Hot chart.

Throughout 2020, the rising rookie showcased his versatility and rock-solid work ethic, amassing his streaming totals to a whopping five million independently.  Anchored by his electric single “Feel It,” which sits at nearly two million streams on Spotify, Tril’s standout year earned him a performance slot for NBA #2KFest celebration. Last April, GrungeCake also lauded the young hyphenate for his “undeniably catchy, singsongy hook and fast-paced verses” on “Do It Most.” Then, in December, Flaunt Magazine highlighted Tril’s action-packed video “All Da Action” and dubbed him “a force to be reckoned with.” To cap off his strong run, Tril finished the year strong with his visual “Workin.”

Tril thrives on self-reliance, as he’s proven to record his music, film his videos, and has even developed a strong connection with his fans on social media. With Roddy Ricch and Juice WRLD serving as influences, YSB’s road to greatness will come sooner than later.
