 “I fuck with guns, but I do not carry a gun. I grew up shooting guns in the upper peninsula (Michigan) every summer, I am not against them but also not for them.”

 

Michael Barr: Do you like drugs?

$LOTH BOY: I fuck with all types of drugs, I’m mostly experimental. I smoke weed regularly, sip lean from time to time, and dabble in percocets and xanax.

Michael Barr: Who are NOO$E GANG?

$LOTH BOY: NOO$E GANG consists of $LOTHBOY, CHO MARI, YUNG KURONA, LEX FLARE, BURIALSHROUD, and SOLARSTU.

These are my everyday homies. I have known them for years.

Michael Barr: How old are you and where are you from?

$LOTH BOY: I am twenty-two years old and I’m from Royal Oak, Michigan. Metro Detroit, you know.

Michael Barr: What can you tell us about “Into the Woods?”

$LOTH BOY: Michigan is very out-doors-sy. We are surrounded by nature; lakes, water, woods, national forests and shit. I’ve always been into camping and fuckin’ hiking and being in the woods surrounded by nature. That played into “Into The Woods.”

 

Michael Barr: Where did you shoot the video for “Step Into My Coffin?”

$LOTH BOY: Sean’s crib, right in downtown Detroit.

Michael Barr: Who is Sean, and why is he openly doing cocaine in “Step Into My Coffin?”

$LOTH BOY: Jeremy had the idea of the whole video. Obviously, we talked about it between the five of us. There is a story to “Step Into My Coffin,” how we came up with the visuals, I have no fucking idea.

As for having the drugs and coke in it, I’m openly talking about this shit so I was gonna put it in my video for shock value.

Michael Barr: Who are the girls you featured in the video?

$LOTH BOY: I’ll be real with you…I never knew who they were up until that day. So he [Jeremy] brought these two chicks on set. Random chicks. They were really cool and down for whatever we threw at them. I think we had more in store for them then they expected. They were 18, so they were of age.

Damn, It was cold as hell that night. I don’t even really know how they ended up in the video.

 

Michael Barr: What are your thoughts on guns?

$LOTH BOY: I fuck with guns, but I do not carry a gun. I grew up shooting guns in the upper peninsula (Michigan) every summer, I am not against them but also not for them.

Gun’s don’t kill people, stupid people kill people.

Michael Barr: What are your thoughts about politics and the current election?

$LOTH BOY: Dude, I don’t pay attention to anything political. All I know is FUCK DONALD TRUMP!

Michael Barr: How would you describe your music?

$LOTH BOY: I wouldn’t even know the sub-genre to call it. Futuristic, trappy, underground… Honestly, I don’t even know what to call it, man. I’m not trying to go in any direction, but It’s definitely a lot darker.

Michael Barr: How do you feel about being called a “SoundCloud Rapper?”

$LOTH BOY: I don’t take offense to many things. If you wanna call me a SoundCloud rapper go ahead. I do not care.

Michael Barr: What kind of music were you influenced by growing up?

$LOTH BOY: Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy, but I was really into 36 Mafia. I listened to them all the time when I was growing up.

Michael Barr: Who are your top three favorite rappers?

$LOTH BOY: Dash, Suicide Boys, and Retchy P.

Michael Barr: What are your plans for the rest of the year?

$LOTH BOY: Work, man. Videos, working on a couple of projects, looking for shows.

Michael Barr: What are your plans for the rest of the day?

$LOTH BOY: I am going to smoke some weed and see The Revenant.
