Staten Island’s Squidnice Debuts Two New Singles Ahead of EP Release
Staten Island rapper Squidnice is imbued with the type of charisma that makes him comfortable performing an impromptu freestyle to distract annoyed influencers from the fact that they have to wait at the door of a party. Which, ironically, is exactly how he first met the Highsnobiety crew.
The 20-year-old’s rise to success was largely prompted by the infectiousness of his 2015 single, “Trap By My Lonely.” Since then, he’s become a favorite of now-defunct New York agitator brand, Hood By Air, and secured himself as one of the stylish new guard in NYC’s vibrant hip-hop scene.
Ahead of the release of his forthcoming EP, Trap By My Lonely, Squid debuted two A Lau-produced tracks, “Lit Now” and “Still.”
“This is something for the fans to hold on to until my EP drops,” the rapper explained. “I’m gonna drop new content every week till then. TRAPPEN!”
Listen to both singles below.
