Suicideboys Tour 2020
SUICIDEBOYS TOUR 2020 : There are prolific artists and then there’s the New Orleans hip-hop duo $uicideboy$, which has released dozens of EPs since forming in 2014. This frenetic creative pace befits the pair’s brutally honest lyrics, which pull no punches detailing self-destructive behavior, ruminating on mortality, and confronting mental health issues. It’s no wonder $uicideboy$ view themselves as part of the wildly inventive, DIY-geared SoundCloud rap movement—and were a favorite of another no-holds-barred musician, the late emo-rapper Lil Peep.

$uicideboy$ should also be considered the latest torchbearers of New Orleans’ vibrant hip-hop legacy. The group—consisting of cousins $lick (aka $lick $loth, aka $crim, né Scott Arceneaux Jr.) and Ruby Da Cherry (né Aristos Petrou)—are avowed admirers of the city’s influential bounce music style and revered rap label Cash Money Records. But, in a nod to New Orleans’ reputation as a cultural melting pot, each member of the $uicideboy$ comes to music from a different angle: $lick honed his chops as a DJ, while Ruby Da Cherry was involved in the local punk scene as a drummer.
No matter the duo’s inspirations, their music is connecting with an increasingly larger audience: 2016’s ‘Radical $uicide’ EP landed in the Top 20 of Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, and their first official full-length, 2018’s ‘I Want to Die in New Orleans,’ debuted in the Top 10. Produced by $lick under the moniker Budd Dwyer, the independently released ‘I Want to Die in New Orleans’ exemplifies the darkness lurking at the core of the $uicideboy$ sound. Dank R&B beats, slurred vocals and tempos, and jet-black production dominate, creating a macabre vibe saturated with horror-movie-caliber tension. Naturally, the pair’s I Want to Die in New Orleans tour also promises no shortage of moments for fans to find communal catharsis in embracing vulnerability.
