Who is Spooky Black? Just an Internet monster with the voice of an angel.
He hails from St. Paul, Minn. and is America’s answer to Yung Lean. But nevermind that. Back in February, he hit us in the head with a video for “Without You.” Imagine singing this to your crush while rocking a turtle neck, a 14K First Communion chain, and either a white stocking cap or black durag even though you can’t get waves. All that equals waterworks, she won’t be able to resist. Trust. via Complex
Despite his chosen aesthetic, or perhaps in part because of it, Spooky Black has become something of an internet sensation. Spooky’s “Without You” has received over a million views on YouTube and his “Black Silk” mixtape is the focus of a growing cult following. Buy his album here.
The identity and true motivations of this artist are unfortunately still a mystery however for at the time of writing, Spooky Black will have yet to conduct a single interview.
