Hikari-Ultra/Republic Records duo City Morgue debuts at number one on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums Chart and in the top 20 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart today with their new album CITY MORGUE VOL 2: AS GOOD AS DEAD. Despite being in the rock categories on all of the digital service platforms and number one on the Apple Music Rock Albums chart, Billboard went in a different direction, placing it on their urban genre chart.

The melding of Rock and Rap is a concept that’s existed within the underbelly of music for decades, yet few have done what City Morgue is doing. When upstarts SosMula and ZillaKami come together, their fusion is seamless—oozing true skill with a reckless lack of fucks left to give. On the supergroup’s debut mixtape City Morgue Vol. 1: Hell or High Water, the dynamic duo delivered a new and exciting vibe for any fan of true music—from hip-hop to metal. They will continue this movement on their second album CITY MORGUE VOL 2: AS GOOD AS DEAD. Their music is an experience anyone can appreciate and shows what happens when two worlds meet to form an entirely new planet. The Hikari-Ultra/Republic Records signees have already shown a significant track record of hits in a relatively short amount of time, and it won’t stop there. The duo also dominates the merch scene, with countless sold out exclusive collections. Most recently, the pair teamed up with famed illustrator Mark Riddick and creative director Joe Perez for merch that sold out in 24 hours. Stay tuned for more merch announcements.
