ZILLAKAMI IS BACK WITH A NEW SINGLE AND VIDEO “NOT WORTH IT”
Listen to “Not Worth It:” HERE
ZillaKami of City Morgue shares a rock-driven new single and video entitled “Not Worth It” via Hikari Ultra/Republic Records. The guitar-laden track shows another side of the dynamic New York disruptor. Distortion wraps around a glitchy beat as he flexes his falsetto between moments of incisive introspective reflection, “Everybody loves me, but I don’t deserve it.” As always, his words cut deep. While in the music video, ZillaKami’s rock essence shines in a crew of moshers swarming a skate park.
It arrives on the heels of “FROSTY” which attracted critical acclaim. Right out of the gate, XXL named it among “The 13 Best New Songs This Week,” while HotNewHipHop christened him “one of the earliest and most creative members of the emo-rap wave.” It has gathered 3.2 million Spotify streams and counting and 2.1 million views on the haunting Here.
Dropped earlier this summer, “BADASS” [feat. Lil Uzi Vert] generated north of 10 million streams and 2 million YouTube views on the static audio. This release garnered widespread tastemaker praise as well. Complex attested the track “channels the best of Zillakami’s distinctively hard-hitting approach to rap,” and The FADER praised it as “the perfect blend of ZillaKami’s dark sound and Uzi Vert’s playful delivery.” HotNewHipHop highlighted the “earworm of a hook” and “two electrifying verses” courtesy of ZillaKami.”
Prior, “CHAINS” posted up 2.6 million Spotify streams and 2.9 million views on the explosive Here. HotNewHipHop fittingly described it as “a hard-hitting, head-banging anthem.”
ZillaKami might be rap and rock’s worst nightmare come true in the best way. He defiantly devours guitar-backed beats without one f*ck given. As one-half of City Morgue with partner-in grime SosMula, he has toppled charts, sold-out shows, and scared the shit out of anybody with a conscience. In 2019, the group’s second full-length offering, CITY MORGUE VOL. 2: AS GOOD AS DEAD, held multiple charts hostage, seizing the #1 spot on the Billboard Top Rock Albums Chart and #1 on the Apple Music Rock Albums Chart. The legendary Mike Dean jumped aboard as Executive Producer of the Deluxe Edition. Meanwhile, the 2020 follow-up TOXIC BOOGALOO EP scored #96 on the Billboard Top 200, #9 on the Billboard Top Album Sales Chart, #6 on the Billboard Alternative Albums Chart, #13 on the Billboard Top Rock Albums Chart, and #4 on the Nielsen Music Digital Albums Chart. Not to mention, they’ve pulled in 100 million-plus streams and 100 million-plus views to date. ZillaKami is a rare talent who is seamlessly rising to the ranks of major artists such as Trippie Redd and Ski Mask The Slump God, with whom he recently collaborated. He’s a shape-shifting sonic force with an unbreakable grip on rap and rock that’s ready to bleed like never before on his 2021 solo debut.
