On the track, ZillaKami’s chilling harmonies puncture an airy clean guitar riff as he declares, “Hello depression, I hear your message.” The accompanying video translates this anxiety and darkness on-screen. Rolling through a slasher flick-style suburb, sadness manifests as a dark figure pushing ZillaKami in a shopping cart as he watches his girl from outside of her bedroom window. Hand covered in blood, he ultimately emerges from this nightmare stronger. You’ll have to watch it to find out how…
His most recent solo single “BADASS” [feat. Lil Uzi Vert] has already generated north of 6 million streams and 1.9 million YouTube views on the static audio. Right out of the gate, it garnered widespread tastemaker praise as well. Complex attested the track “channels the best of Zillakami’s distinctively hard-hitting approach to rap,” and The FADER praised it as “the perfect blend of ZillaKami‘s dark sound and Uzi Vert‘s playful delivery.” HotNewHipHop highlighted the “earworm of a hook” and “two electrifying verses” courtesy of ZillaKami.”
Prior, “CHAINS” posted up 2.6 million Spotify streams and 2.9 million views on the explosive music video. HotNewHipHop fittingly described it as “a hard-hitting, head-banging anthem.”
ZillaKami might be rap and rock’s worst nightmare come true in the best way. He defiantly devours guitar-backed beats without one fuck given. As one-half of City Morgue with partner-in-grime SosMula, he has toppled charts, sold out shows, and scared the shit out of anybody with a conscience. In 2019, the group’s second full-length offering, CITY MORGUE VOL. 2: AS GOOD AS DEAD, held multiple charts hostage, seizing the #1 spot on the Billboard Top Rock Albums Chart and #1 on the Apple Music Rock Albums Chart. The legendary Mike Dean jumped aboard as Executive Producer of the Deluxe Edition. Meanwhile, the 2020 follow-up TOXIC BOOGALOO EP scored #96 on the Billboard Top 200, #9 on the Billboard Top Album Sales Chart, #6 on the Billboard Alternative Albums Chart, #13 on the Billboard Top Rock Albums Chart, and #4 on the Nielsen Music Digital Albums Chart. Not to mention, they’ve pulled in 100 million-plus streams and 100 million-plus views to date. ZillaKami is a rare talent who is seamlessly rising to the ranks of major artists such as Trippie Redd and Ski Mask The Slump God, with whom he recently collaborated. He’s a shape-shifting sonic force with an unbreakable grip on rap and rock that’s ready to bleed like never before on his 2021 solo debut.
