Ashnikko Drops Video For Viral F*ck You Anthem "Stupid" feat. Yung Baby Tate
NORTH AMERICAN TOUR WITH DANNY BROWN CURRENTLY UNDERWAY
London-based rapper Ashnikko has unleashed the powerful new video for her viral f*ck-you anthem, "Stupid" which sees her team up with collaborator Yung Baby Tate to deal with the “stupid boys” in their lives. The song has rapidly become a viral sensation and shows no signs of slowing down, going from 15K to 29M global streams in a few short weeks, thanks to its popularity on TikTok, with over 2M entries. Since the start of its meteoric rise, the hit has ranked at #1 on Spotify’s US Viral Chart and #2 on their Global Viral 50 Chart.
Ashnikko recently taped her own Genius “Verified” – watch the hilarious breakdown of “Stupid” here. She is currently touring across North American alongside Danny Brown. See dates below.
“Stupid” is taken from her Hi, It’s Me EP, which is packed with “fuck you” alternative pop songs designed to embolden autonomous women.
Art, music and sexual liberation are the three most potent ingredients in Ashnikko’s rebellion. Born and raised in suburban Greensboro, North Carolina, her parents raised her on a musical diet comprised exclusively of country music and Slipknot. But just as she was settling into life as an American teenager, they carted her off to Estonia, then Latvia, where she was the only American student in the public-school system, taking courses entirely in Latvian. Isolated, it catalyzed an identity crisis she’s still reckoning with to this day. She buried herself in music, listening exclusively to female artists until she was 17 – specifically proudly feminist and sex positive female artists – all of whom shaped her early sound. She used to receive death threats as a woman trying to make music in the “very patriarchal” Baltics. As soon as she turned 18, she moved to London and spent her nights wandering nightclubs and open mics, eventually establishing a home for herself within the OddChild community.
