Video: Warhol.SS ft. Ugly God – “Top Off”
The Two Digital Natives Connect IRL for Some Late Night Shenanigans in the New Video from the M.I.A. EP
“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 smooth flow and an excellent taste in beats, Warhol.SS crafts a unique blend of wavy trap music. Connecting with kindred spirit Ugly God, Warhol shares “Top Off,” his latest music video. Produced by heavy-hitters OZ Musique (Travis Scott) and Kid Hazel (21 Savage), “Top Off” hits hard, as both rappers stack syllables above detuned synths and hyperactive hi-hats. In the video, directed by Wavylord (Shoreline Mafia), Warhol and Ugly God swerve around town in a Mercedes GLE, stopping only to enjoy a strip club.
With over 2.5 million combined streams on Apple and Spotify, “Top Off” is the breakout hit from M.I.A., Warhol’s December 2019 EP. With production from the likes of OZ, Kid Hazel, 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, crunching percussion) and flashy turns-of-phrase. 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$, Brodinski, and more, and touring with the likes of YFN Lucci and Thouxanbanfauni.
Most recently Warhol.SS connected with Shoreline Mafia for “Mind Right,” a party-positive, Chicago-set music video off Shoreline’s recent EP (1 million views).

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.
