On the track that will appear on their upcoming mixtape, New York’s most dangerous duo further incinerate the lines between rap and rock on this banger. Over a roar of distortion, ZillaKami raps with militant precision before SosMula comes through with his own brand of menacing mayhem.
The last time we heard from City Morgue, they crushed two Rock Albums Charts. Their second full-length offering, CITY MORGUE VOL. 2: AS GOOD AS DEAD, captured #1 on the Billboard Top Rock Albums Chart and #1 on the Apple Music Rock Albums Chart. The project and its recently released Deluxe Edition featured the legendary Mike Dean as executive producer. As always, they infected rock and rap from the inside out and generated upwards of 100 million streams and 100 million views.
Rising up from the darkest corners of New York twosome of SosMula and ZillaKami depicted the despair, drugs, violence, and sex defining a city in flames on 2018’s CITY MORGUE VOL 1: HELL OR HIGH WATER. For proof, how many groups could land on “10 Best New Rap Songs Right Now” by The Fader (“Lamborghini Getaway”) as well as Revolver’s “75 Best Songs of 2018” (“Sk8 Head”)? Not to mention, Revolver christened the project among the “30 Best Albums of 2018.” Plus iconic GRAMMY® Award-winning Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor professed his fandom on Instagram. Moving one clothing collection after another at light speed, the pair teamed up with famed illustrator Mark Riddick and creative director Joe Perez for merch that sold out in 24 hours. On CITY MORGUE VOL. 2: AS GOOD AS DEAD, SosMula and Zillakami spin gothic hood tales, harking back to timeless East Coast hip-hop—yet sharpened by their signature dark metallic edge. New York’s most notorious duo flex their storytelling like never before and hint at a deeper, darker and deadlier narrative.
