Video: Suigeneris – “BACK IN MY CITY“
The 18-Year-Old SoundCloud Stunner Returns with a Vengeance in Bass-Thumping, Head-Banging New Single
“Suigeneris is a living testament of the old adage, ‘Age ain’t nothing but a number.'” – XXL
Somewhere between the devil on one side and the angel on the other, Suigeneris has a chip on his shoulder. Hell-bent on sending smoke to the snakes only bold enough to boss up in his absence, the Bay Area native returns to clean house on his electric new single, “BACK IN MY CITY.” Bringing explosive energy to an instrumental where bone-shaking bass collides with pitched-up guitar loops like thunder and lightning, the 18-year old artist’s intensity neither slows nor ceases from the moment he enters with the track’s infectious hook: “Whippin’ the V12 with no seatbelt/Details, I ain’t never need no b****.” In the video, Suie returns to his hometown of San Jose, visiting his old middle school and other haunts that he’s missed since moving to L.A. to make hits.
On a mission to prove he can rap circles around emcees of any age, and with the undeniable appeal and dexterity to back it up, Suie’s been sending out more slaps than the Oscars in recent weeks. “BACK IN MY CITY” arrives just a week after Suie showcased his mastery of the minimal, stripping his sound down to only the most essential elements on the endearing “Song.” Earlier this month, Suie shared “Down,” a soul sampling SoundCloud single released in collaboration with fellow teen titan yvngxchris, which peaked at #12 on SoundCloud’s New & Hot chart.
Suigeneris broke into the rap game at the tender age of 14, earning co-signs from the likes of Lil Skies and YG, and racking up tens of millions of streams. He showed that age was nothing but a number with his 2019 project Suinami, featured appearances from NLE Choppa, TJ Porter, and Daddex, and gave rise to hits like “Lucifer” (2 million YouTube views). Sui returned in 2020 with Demons N Angels, a double EP split in two halves–the Demons half of the project showcases Suie’s rapping skills and impish charm, while the Angels half expands his sound into the worlds of pop and R&B. During the pandemic, Suie took a brief hiatus from music to start his own clothing brand, Demons N Angels a.k.a. DNA, a streetwear company with eye-popping design and skyrocketing sales. Suie recently resurfaced on SoundCloud, showing off his new rapping style with songs like “Tiger Woods,” and he plans on dropping fire on a regular basis as the summer heats up.
Already a popping rapper and successful CEO, there’s nothing that Suigeneris can’t accomplish. He may have reached a laundry list of lifelong goals by the time he could legally vote, but he’s still hungry, and not done growing. Stay tuned for much more from the young OG in the near future.

Introduced to hip-hop by his brothers, Suigeneris experienced his first taste of success at the young age of 13, when his video “Pull Up” caught fire in the Bay Area to the tune of 1.6 million YouTube views. Since then, Suie’s career trended ever upward. “Pull Up” caught the ear of Landon Cube, who brought Suie on as an opening act for his tour. Through Cube, Suie met Lil Skies, who appreciated Suie’s melodic mastery enough to collaborate with him on “Now” (6.2 million Spotify streams, 3.6 million YT views). His 2019 mixtape Suinami earned more than 15 million streams on Spotify alone, and 20 million across all platforms. Now 16, and with over 415k monthly listeners on Spotify, Suie is preparing to release Demons N Angels, a double EP that comments on his dual nature–Romeo and Damien, singer and rapper.
