Top Acts About Town
Rap/Hip Hop
The rap duo consists of cousins from New Orleans, described by one fan on the Web as "maniacal, lo-fi weirdos [who] have been creating futuristic glitch trap with enough bass to kickstart the apocalypse." Their notoriety, such as it is, stems from graphic descriptions of drug use and violence in their lyrics.
