EDITORS’ NOTES

It would take a group called $uicideBoy$ to pen a love letter to their hometown and call it I Want to Die in New Orleans. The duo—cousins Suicide Christ and Ruby da Cherry—maintain that their music is an outlet for their darker, depression-driven impulses, but their appreciation for The Big Easy (along with scuzzy pop-punk vocals and mid-’90s, lo-fi Memphis rap) shines through on the first major release since their Kill Yourself series of EPs in late 2017. NOLA references are less Easter eggs than ornaments: The bass-heavy “Krewe du Vieux” honors the Mardi Gras parade of the same name, while “Carrollton,” which features an intro from Three 6 Mafia’s Juicy J, is named for an uptown neighborhood. The beat for “Coma” is built from a sample of Memphis legend Playa Fly’s “Kreepin Out Da Kut,” and the album’s interludes come in the form of local news clips about city-specific tragedies, like when the levees broke.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

I’ve been listening to $B since 2015 and they are by far the best rappers in the game . Can’t wait to hear their new album

On another level of rap they don’t miss the best underground group ever they are the best in the game and this album will prove that

Mediocre

I wouldn’t say it’s bad, but I wouldn’t say it’s good either. Just eh.
