Many of us remember the hip-hop "zero", but rather the then popular gangsta rap. Money, beautiful girls, expensive cars. At that time, it was customary to brag about these things. Times of vulgar luxury passed and with the advent of SoundCloud-rap to the music industry, it became clear - the genre has changed forever.
It happened not only thanks to the genre, but also to the people who fruitfully worked in it and are still doing it today. City Morgue duet, which on the Internet is known as ZillaKami X SosMula, is one such creative unit. They will perform for the first time in Kiev on November 25 at the Closer club
The history of dating ZillaKami and SosMula is not surprising. SosMula served 15 months for 50 grams of "crack" and a few trunks, which were found by the police. As soon as SosMula “leaned back”, he went to hang out and met ZillaKami at one of the parties. Two days later they were already sitting in the studio and "baking" their first mixtape.
The real names ZillaKami and SosMula are unknown. They rarely give interviews and reluctantly communicate, preferring abstract, vague wording to specific and precise answers. For example, in an interview with the No Jumper podcast, the guys tryndyat about all sorts of nonsense, and SosMula smokes weed and “sentences” a bottle of whiskey.
City Morgue is one of the representatives of the underground hip-hop, which opposes itself to everyone and everything. Commerce, a decent society and, of course, common sense.
The whole essence of the rap phenomenon of the new school is perfectly reflected in the works of City Morgue. Clips that cause epilepsy. Overly aggressive music with no less aggressive couplets. "Heifers, cars and grandmas" are also present, but without glamorous spraying. Rather, covered in the dirt of this world.
They are friends with Denzel Curry, Pouya, Shakewell and others. All will perform in Kiev this fall. Their clips on YouTube collect views (SK8 Head - 3.8 million, Shinners 13 - 3.5 million) without much difficulty, showing what is in high esteem from a young audience now.
ZillaKami and SosMula compose and perform as if they have nothing to lose, provoking everyone and everything in a conflict. For example, ZillaKami showed the whole world on Instagram that the skittles-rapper Tekashi69 pestered a 13-year-old girl, which is why the latter still has serious problems. Why all? Because Tekashi69 stole a bit from them.
City Morgue is not afraid of anyone or anything. Even ready to get a bullet in the forehead without any fear. However, they will not wait for lead from the Kiev public, but they may well receive a warm welcome.
