Goonew stays true to his sound in new song and video.
Goonew knows his sound and his intentions are clear. When describing his music in a 2018 interview with ELEVATOR, he told us, “This aint no hip hop… you aint boppin to this shit. This aint even trap for real, this that homicide music… this that sliding music.” His new offering doesn’t deviate from this sentiment one bit.
The Maryland rapper’s new song “Suicidal Thoughts” sounds like a sped-up, modern rendition of The Notorious B.I.G.‘s song of the same name. Goonew is known for his subdued delivery, as some of his music has been classified as “whisper rap.” The video creates an interesting juxtaposition as the images of the young rapper and his homies turning up on a yacht seems to downplay its menacing lyrics.
