Ghost Kidz Hijack Rolling Loud Stage
Superplastic Records artists, Ghost Kidz, hijack Rolling Loud’s mainstage moments before Lil Uzi Vert’s performance to play a music video for their song “Goin Off.” The song features hip-hop artist Vince Staples.
Ghost Kidz are a 3D animated hip-hop duo. Filth-E and Lil’ ILL are the two voices behind the characters, and they have chosen to remain anonymous. Ghost Kidz are the first artist signed to Superplastic Records. CEO Paul Budnitz was the one to sign the duo. “Ghost Kidz scare the fuck out of me, which is the main reason we signed them,” said Superplastic CEO Paul Budnitz.
Superplastic is an international entertainment brand that creates a roster of world-famous synthetic celebrities and influencers appearing in social media, gaming, music, fashion and more. The brand sells tens of millions of dollars in virtual and real product and has collaborated with Tommy Hilfiger, J. Balvin, Gucci, Pusha-T, Post Malone, The Weekend, Vince Staples, Fortnite, and many others. Superplastic’s turn into the music industry has been described as a natural progression for the brand to continue reimagining animated storytelling and entertainment. Ghost Kidz are designated as the ones to draw musical attention and revenue to the company.
Rolling Loud is one of the biggest hip-hop festivals in the world. It was founded in 2015 by elementary friends Matt Zingler and Tariq Cherif. The event has blossomed yearly, expanding to places such as California, New York, Australia, Asia, and Canada. There are many artists to perform at Rolling Loud such as Playboi Carti, Travis Scott, Future, Lil Baby, Lil Durk, and more. This year Lil Uzi was set to perform, it was just before his performance that Ghost Kidz made their Rolling Loud debut.
A group of people came to the stage with white hazmat-like suits and t-shirt cannons. The group would then leave the stage as Ghost Kidz played the music video for their song “Going Off” featuring Vince Staples. You usually don’t see this kind of music video in hip-hop; it was different. They showed a 3D animated type music video with other characters, with the music video then transforming into a cartoon. This duo is something never seen before, and it certainly makes one curious about where they’ll go in the future.
