(New York, NY – March 29, 2019) – Today, platinum-selling rapper Ugly God returns with his brand new single “Hello” featuring menacing maestro Lil Pump.
The dynamic duo delivers a one-two punch of flashy hijinks and charismatic one-liners over trunk-rattling production courtesy of Fizzle (Lil Uzi Vert, YG). In anticipation of single release, Ugly God launched a mobile number (1-844-5UGLYAF) where fans received a first listen of the track and recorded special voicemails for the Hip-Hop phenom. “Hello” is available now for streaming and download.
“Hello” serves as the first offering from Ugly God’s forthcoming studio album, 'Bumps & Bruises' – a body of work he unapologetically describes as “the smoothest piece of art I have ever put my heart into.” This project is curated especially for his generation and encourages them to embrace the good, the bad … and the ugly. Stay tuned for more details and new music from 'Bumps & Bruises'.
Lyrically crude and rhythmically sluggish, Ugly God is a 22-year-old rapper and producer who broke out during the latter half of the 2010s.
Born in Indiana, he has lived in other areas of the Midwest, as well as the South, including Texas, Mississippi, and Louisiana. He attended the University of Southern Mississippi and dropped out, subsequently forming the Little Dick Clique and releasing material -- such as "Booty from a Distance" and "I Beat My Meat" -- through a SoundCloud page.
In 2016, one of the more successful tracks, "Water," was picked up for release by major-label Asylum Records. By the end of the year, the single made two of Billboard's viral charts and eventually scored a platinum certification.
Ugly God issued his full-length debut, 'The Booty Tape,' in 2017, which featured the self-diss track “Fuck Ugly God” and a collaboration with Wiz Khalifa entitled “No Lies.” The mixtape climbed into the Top 30 of the Billboard 200. That same year, Ugly God earned a coveted spot on the XXL Freshman list, solidifying his undeniable impact on the music industry.
In 2019, Ugly God will release his second, full-length project 'Bumps & Bruises'.
