Scum is a Russian-American rapper from Denver, Colorado.[Citation needed] He is recognized for his extremely violent, grotesque, horror-themed lyrics.

Career beginningsEdit

Scum’s career began in 1996 when he moved from Moscow, Russia to Denver, Colorado and became involved in an experimental grind/noise project called Down Syndrome. They released 3 tapes from 1996-1998 before disbanding, following their third and final release. From there, he joined forces with his brother Sevill and became involved in a variety of underground rap projects including DL; Underground Cult; and LnG, a duo featuring Scum; all of which shared violent themes and highly offensive, suggestive lyrics. Most of his early projects only released demos and mixtapes; however, LnG released a full length album on CD in 2002. Sevill persuaded Scum to go solo; and since then, he has released eight solo albums to date.[Citation needed]
