Ugly God is an American rapper and record producer who rose to fame by sharing his original music on Soundcloud. By the end of 2017, he had garnered over 528,000 fans on Soundcloud, to which he posts his music releases. With over 33 million spins on SoundCloud and another 15 million YouTube views, Ugly God can be described as an internet sensation.
One of his hit singles Water debuted at number 100 on the Billboard hot 100 and made its way to number 80 on the chart. The single which has been streamed over 87million times since it was uploaded was produced by the rapper himself alongside Danny Wolf. The huge success of the ‘Water’ single earned him a deal with Asylum Records.
His debut Mixtape titled The Booty Tape was released in August 2017 and it peaked at number 27 of the Billboard 200. Since then, his fan base has been growing at a tremendous rate. Ugly God was named among the 10 members of XXL’s “2017 Freshman Class”. His Freshman Freestyle which he performed alongside rappers Playboi Carti, MadeinTYO and XXXTentacion have garnered over 18million views on YouTube.
Ugly God initially went by the moniker ‘Pussy Bacon’, however, he had it changed because his parents didn’t approve and due to social reasons. His first single I Beat My Meat was released in 2014 but had to be taken down because the principal at his High school didn’t approve of it. He reuploaded it in his freshman year at the University of Southern Mississippi and it has stayed uploaded since then. In 2016 he signed to the Red Dragon Label owned by iLoveMakonnen.
Ugly God is very funny and doesn’t take his music seriously. The rapper admitted that he initially started making music for himself, turned out that it caught people’s attention. His tracks are known to be hilarious with catchy beats which can make any listener nod along. His lyrics seem like what your high school class clown would recite in the locker room. His self-deprecating sense of humour and ludicrous lyrics endear him to his fast-growing fan base.
