Download The New Normal Album by $uicideBoy$
On April 1st, 2021, the duo posted the following caption accompanying the album art on both their Twitter and Instagram:
“$UICIDE SEASON BEGINS THIS MONTH $UICIDEBOY$ – NEW PROFILE PIC COMING SOON”
The caption refers to the single on it as well as April being the release month. Due to the date in which it was announced, many fans suspected it to be an April Fools joke, but on April 7th, 2021, the group confirmed the release date of the project, thus quelling this speculation. A Twitter page called OnlyFiles leaked the project two days prior.
$crim holds it down with the second verse, coming through with a rapid-fire flow. “Creepin’ round your motherfucking block with no plates, mane,” he raps, as the ghoulish soundscape floats beneath him. “Make your motherfucking front yard to a gun range / Blocka-blocka with the choppa, turn your name to a stain.” At this moment, $uicideboy$ are among the few keeping the southern horrorcore aesthetic alive, and “New Profile Pic” is a welcome addition to their deep and disturbing catalog.
