Every couple of years, hip-hop goes through a process known as the changing of the guard, where fresher faces begin to replace those that aren’t so new anymore, and a new standard of cool gets ushered in. While a segment of fans may not care much for the musical stylings of this new class of upstarts and relative newcomers, reality is that more than a few of them are here to stay, one of them likely being Ugly God, a rapper that is as quirky and nonchalant as they come.

Calling home to Houston and Mississippi, Ugly God began pursuing a career in rap while enrolled at the University of Southern Mississippi, but would ultimately drop out to focus on his craft full-time. Ugly God may have had a lack of industry ties to utilize, but what he did have that would give him a leg up was his single “Water,” which quickly went viral after being uploaded to his SoundCloud account in March of 2016. Racking up millions of views, “Water” peaked at No. 80 on the Billboard Hot 100, earning the rising rapper a partnership with Asylum Records.

Continuing his winning streak into 2017, he earned a coveted spot on the 2017 XXL Freshman cover. With momentum on his side, the rapper decided to keep his foot on the gas with the release of his debut project, The Booty Tape, which is a sample serving of the the rapper’s oddball musings. The lone feature on the tape coming courtesy of Wiz Khalifa, The Booty Tape is geared more towards getting the public in tune with Ugly God, and prepping them for what is sure to be a succession of drops to strengthen his fan base.
