EP: Warhol.SS – M.I.A.
The Immersive EP Boasts Production From Kid Hazel and OZ Musique and Includes the New Single “Top Off” ft. Ugly God
“Chicago rapper Warhol.SS burst onto the scene last year with his distinctive voice and a series of catchy, off-kilter bangers” – Complex
“Warhol has been on the verge of a breakout moment for a while now” – Pitchfork
“Nonstop energy” – Los Angeles Times
“Totally unprofessional in the best way possible. More mixtapes need to sound like this.” – Red Bull
“Warhol balances his ruggedness with a soporific melodic flow, and I’m playing it so often that I might get it onto the ‘new and hot’ chart myself.” – Chicago Reader
With a great ear and a flow to match, Chicago’s Warhol.SS brings a refined aesthetic to his flex-heavy tunes. Satisfying his fans’ appetite with a new six-track effort, Warhol delivers the M.I.A. EP. With production from the likes of OZ Musique (Travis Scott), Kid Hazel (21 Savage), Bobby Kritical (Future, Lil Uzi Vert), frequent Warhol collaborator Staccato, and more, M.I.A. cultivates an immersive trap experience, packed with fascinating sonic details (detuned synths, entrancing flutes, melodic percussion) and flashy turns-of-phrase. The EP boasts the recent single “Top Off,” in which Warhol and Ugly God swap witticisms atop Kid Hazel’s trunk-rattling instrumental. Featuring an additional appearance from Famous Dex, M.I.A. is available everywhere via EMPIRE.
Riding the momentum of 2018’s successful Chest Pains project, Warhol kept busy in 2019, releasing the buzzing “Kill Tek Piece” featuring Lil Mosey (over 5 million combined streams on YouTube and Spotify), collaborating with bbno$, Shoreline Mafia, and Brodinski, and toured with the likes of YFN Lucci and Thouxanbanfauni. With the M.I.A. EP, Warhol ends the decade on a high note, using the project as a launching pad for new sounds and ideas to explore in the 2020s.

Born on Chicago’s East Side, Warhol.SS grew up in a music-loving family, with a mother who loved Erykah Badu and a father who loved MF DOOM. Inspired by his city’s famous “Class of 2012” drill rappers, Warhol started making music in high school, jumping headfirst into the game after graduation. In 2016, Warhol.SS shared the video for “Speed Racer,” directed by then-newcomer Cole Bennett, who posted the video on his YouTube channel, Lyrical Lemonade. A head-spinning video even by Bennett’s standards, the video shrunk Warhol down to the size of a model car as he floated through a psychedelic landscape, introducing the world to Warhol and racking up over 2.8 million views in the process. Since releasing “Speed Racer,” Warhol has been one of the most in-demand names of rap’s digital youth, collaborating with the likes of Trippie Redd, Rich The Kid, Ski Mask The Slump God, Famous Dex, ThouxbanFauni, and many more, dropping Warhol ’16 and Where’s Warhol, a pair of seven-track mixtapes, and building a reputation as an exceptional rhymer. Warhol released his debut album Chest Pains in 2018, featuring appearances from Rico Nasty, UnoTheActivist, and more. Stay tuned for the MIA EP, Warhol’s next project, releasing December 10th, 2019.
