Ugly God speaks on his rise to prominence, weird fans, "The Booty Tape," and more in a new interview.
Ugly God has descended from on high to bless all those who reside in the internet. In the past year, songs like "I Beat My Meat," "Booty From a Distance," and "Water" have propelled him to SoundCloud stardom. His unusual music style, sharp, self-deprecating sense of humor, and passion for lizards and Pokemon have a horde of fans prostrating at his feet.
We are living in the Age of Ugly God. HNHH recently sat down with the fledgling artist to talk about his rise to prominence, his weird fans, his upcoming The Booty Tape, and more.
Ugly God moved around a lot as a kid, from Indiana to Mississippi to Cleveland to Houston to Louisiana. He started rapping while enrolled at the University of Southern Miss. He first rapped as Pussy Bacon, a nom du guerre he was forced to retire once his parents found out about it. And so, Ugly God was born.
We asked Ugly God to meditate on his strengths and weaknesses as an artist. "I make beautiful-ass beats but my fucking lyrics is trash," he replied. "My music is so fucking trash, bro. I think my beats save my music, honestly." Despite this harsh bit of self-criticism, he expressed no desire to evolve his methods.
Later, he denied having a foot fetish, though he did say that toes are one of the main criteria by which he evaluates potential sexual partners. He admitted that his music has had a disproportionate impact on people with foot fetishes and people who eat ass.
Known for his sobriety, Ugly God called drinking and smoking "whack" and explained that he has never been tempted to try either, despite being in the presence of these vices more often.
He concluded by teasing his highly anticipated debut project The Booty Tape. "You can expect weird fucking features," he said. "Ignorant shit. Smooth shit. I might do a song in all Spanish. Shit like that."
