Ugly God is an American rapper and record producer who became famous by spreading his original music on Soundcloud. By the end of 2017, he had over 528,000 fans on Soundcloud, where he releases his music. With over 33 million spins on SoundCloud and another 15 million YouTube views, the ugly god can be considered an internet sensation.
One of his hit singles, Water, debuted at number 100 on the Billboard hot 100 and made it to number 80 on the charts. The single, which has been streamed over 87 million times since it was uploaded, was produced by the rapper himself alongside Danny Wolf. The huge success of the “Water” single earned him a contract with Asylum Records.
His debut mixtape, entitled “The Booty Tape”, was released in August 2017 and peaked at number 27 on the Billboard 200, since when his fan base has grown at a tremendous pace. The Ugly God was named “2017 Freshman Class” among the 10 members of the XXL. His first-grade freestyle, which he performed together with the rappers Playboi Carti, MadeinTYO and XXXTentacion, was seen over 18 million times on YouTube.
The ugly god initially called himself “Pussy Bacon”, but he had it changed for social reasons and because of the dissatisfaction of his parents. His first single “I Beat My Meat” was released in 2014 but had to be canceled because the director of his high school did not want to approve it. He uploaded it again during his first year of studies at the University of South Mississippi and it has been uploaded ever since. In 2016 he signed with the Red Dragon Label of iLoveMakonnen.
The ugly god is very funny and does not take his music seriously. The rapper admitted that in the beginning he made music for himself and it turned out that he attracted people’s attention. His tracks are known for being hilarious and having catchy beats that can make any listener nod. His lyrics seem like something your high school class clown would recite in the locker room. His self-deprecating sense of humor and ridiculous lyrics make him popular with his rapidly growing fan base.
