Today, half of G59’s underground super-duo $uicideboy$, Scrim, released his debut solo project A Man Rose From the Dead. The album, produced by Scrim’s other alter-ego Budd Dwyer is a 20-track mixture that ranges from melodically auto-tuned tracks to the traditional darker bass-boosted tunes that $uicideboy$ fans are accustomed to hearing. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump and please share this with friends.
The album was created while Scrim was self-isolating in a studio in Palm Desert, California on his path to sobriety as a way to deal with his ever-changing emotions while getting clean. Some of the tracks were composed with the intention of his cousin Ruby (the other half of $uicideboy$) being on the other end of them while others were created simply as a pseudo-audio-diary that chronicles Scrim’s journey from being completely reliant on drugs to in his own words, “a man rising from the grave.” The project became just as much of a form of therapy as anything else related to his treatments for substance abuse.
Scrim and his cousin Ruby grew up together, white kids in black neighborhoods on the east and west banks of New Orleans. The Crescent City rap duo went on to form $uicideboy$ when they combined their talents in 2014, but the pair were already well-acquainted after growing up nearby and having similar interests. However, they initially veered down different paths. Ruby (aka Suicide Leopard) dabbled in punk rock, influenced by the Misfits, Minor Threat and Leftover Crack. Meanwhile, Scrim (aka Suicide Christ) was a DJ and songwriter with deep roots in trap and hip hop. Once they joined forces in 2014, the result was a dark blend of horrorcore glitch-trap bubbling with booming bass, ominous atmospherics, and occultist, drugged-out rhymes. Ten volumes were issued that year, closing with XX: The Infinity Saga. Early 2018 saw the release of single “FUCKALLOFYOU2K18.” Later that year, they issued “Carrollton” and “Meet Mr. NICEGUY,” a pair of singles that landed on their fall release, I Want to Die in New Orleans. Issued in September 2019, the album landed at #9 on the Billboard 200. Before headlining the inaugural Grey Day Tour, the duo released a 6-track EP in May with the legendary Travis Barker titled “Live Fast, Die Whenever.” $uicideboy$ released their newest 12-track project on February 14th titled Stop Staring at the Shadows, garnering over 150 million streams in its first week.
ABOUT G59 RECORDS:
Founded formally in 2015, G59 Records boasts a lineup that is as bold as it is diverse. Flagship act $uicideboy$ have cultivated one of the most loyal fan bases in music because they have chosen to go where many artists wouldn’t dare to when it comes to detailing the harsh realities of the downtrodden or being a social outcast. G59 believes that the most intriguing and captivating artists are the ones that don’t fit within the constraints of what might be considered mainstream. Both the individual and collective fan bases of G59 artists (Shakewell, Germ, Ramirez, Night Lovell, $uicideboy$) are of all socioeconomic backgrounds, races, ages, and beliefs; which in essence is what music is all about. G59 artists are encouraged to be themselves and take the reins on their creative directions to keep their music and brands as authentic as possible to both themselves and their fanbases.
In 2019, G59 artists spearheaded the inaugural Grey Day, a yearly nationwide tour that showcases the best talent across hip-hop/rap, metal, rock, trap, EDM, and more with a focus on fan bases composed of young people who, like our artists, might not fit into any one mold. Between both domestic and world tours combined with countless releases coming down the pipeline, we urge you to stay current with our talented roster as we move into 2020 and beyond.
