Channeling the stark sound and fatalistic worldview of vintage Southern rap, the New Orleans duo takes grim pleasure in grappling with substance abuse and mental illness.

When it comes to conveying grandiose emotions, $uicideboy$ scan as melodramatic rather than tortured. The way they describe misery and alienation on their latest album Long Term Effects of SUFFERING feels trite and cliché, despite their personal experiences with mental illness and drug abuse.

The Needle Drop

For better or worse, $uicideboy$ stick to their guns on Long Term Effects.

Since the release of their debut album, the $uicideboy$ have really become very different artists. No longer flooding the airwaves with the plethora of horror-tinged Southern hip-hop that they're best known for on a multitude of hard-hitting and concise early mixtapes, the boy$' musical trajectory seems to have trended downward in a somewhat concerning way. $crim's horrendous solo debut in 2019, along with mediocre releases like last year's STOP STARING AT THE SHADOWS, marked a turn that ... read more

An album that is so consistently plain.

Clocking in at 33 minutes, $uicideboy$ manages to make the same song 13 times. The only really, really good one is If Self-Destruction Was an Olympic Event, I’d Be Tonya Harding. I also love the album cover. And that's kind of where the praise ends for the album.

Album: Long Term Effects of SUFFERING
Artist: $uicideboy$ @suicideboys
Genre: Trap Rap, Cloud Rap

The first track to this project “ Degeneration” isn’t a track I’m crazy about, but it shows listenable production. It gets a good follow up, with the track “If Self-Destruction Was An Olympic Event” with two different bass instruments working together. “Life Is but a Stream” has a guitar riff that does a good job showing how emo this track is, ... read more
