$uicideboy$ and Shakewell Release Joint EP

On February 24, 2023, the newest project and collaboration from $uicideboy$ and Shakewell brings us a dark ominous beat and smooth flow. The joint EP “Shameless $uicide” gives us unapologetic realness about drug use, violence, mental health, and relationships. After 4 months of waiting to hear something new, the boys have delivered.

This project comes in at #49 for the rap pair, contains 6 tracks, is 17 minutes long, and the lead single at the very end. Not even a full week after the drop, “Big Shot Cream Soda” is number 5 in $uicideboy$ discography, and number 1 for Shakewell.

Ruby da Cherry and $crim

For those who are new to $uicideboy$, former SoundCloud rappers Ruby da Cherry and $crim came together in 2014. People were instantly drawn to their shocking make-it-or-die-trying mission statement. The two cousins swore they would either become successful by 30, or commit suicide. Hence the name, $uiucideboy$.

The two cousins are known to make dark music that doesn’t tread lightly around suicide ideation. Alongside mentions of heavy drug use, their music has become very well-known with almost 11 million monthly listeners.

I’d rather get high, I’d rather go die, I’d rather just run and not even try.

One of their most popular albums from 2022 was “Sing Me A Lullaby, My Sweet Temptation.” The album debuted #1 on Billboard Rap albums, and #2 for R&B hip-hop albums. Here, the cousins address their sobriety and their renewal of life. In an interview with Alternative Press, $crim explains;

“I wish it was as easy as just waking up every day and making the choice. I’m involved in some 12-step programs that I do every day, and the people I trust to keep around me are a good support group.”

“Shameless $uicide” builds on their phenomenal run

The unfiltered collaboration between the rising Shakewell and the billboard artists $uicideboy$ tells us that they’re not finished.
