Ugly God interviewed by Nardwuar, playing shows (2 in NYC)
Rising Houston rapper Ugly God probably doesn't want you to take him too seriously. Here's an excerpt of a Pigeons & Planes profile on him:
For those unfamiliar with Ugly God, here’s some context: the 20-year-old, self-ascribed meme rapper uses consistently ludicrous lyrics (“I’m a Pornhub specialist / Booty squishy like a jellyfish") in his songs about butts, masturbation, and cartoons. After dropping out of the University of Southern Mississippi, where he was double-majoring in engineering and web development, he founded the Little Dick Clique (self-explanatory), and went on to record tracks with the likes of Famous Dex and Wintertime. The day after playing a show in NYC, Ugly God is sitting in the P&P offices, proudly boasting an assortment of faux accessories.
“My grill is fake. All my jewelry and watches are fake. Fake is the new cool. Me telling you all my shit is fake, that’s me being real with you. Fake is the new real.”
At SXSW last week, Ugly God was interviewed by Nardwuar. If you want to see how they went down, you can watch below.
Ugly God has some shows coming up, including two in NYC. One is on April 22 at a Brooklyn Warehouse (address TBA) with Carnage and Borgore. Tickets for that one are on sale now. The other is a Pigeons & Planes-presented headlining show on May 13 at Irving Plaza. Tickets for that one are on presale now and the general on-sale starts Friday (3/24) at 10 AM.
