Ugly God raised some eyebrows when he shared an Instagram video of himself illegally crossing railroad tracks despite a train being in the vicinity. After the video was reposted on social media accounts such as Say Cheese TV, the Houston-bred rapper contended he wasn’t clout chasing and only intended for his fans to see the stunt.
“When I posted that video of me crossing the train tracks, y’all niggas clearly see muthafucking train stopping,” he said. “And then these bitch-ass blogs, whoever wanna repost my shit, acting like a nigga trying to kill himself like I’m clout chasing and shit. I don’t even post on the internet. I don’t tweet. Go look at my Twitter, look at my Instagram. I don’t post shit online, so how am I clout chasing?”
While many comments about the video were focused on the danger of Ugly God’s actions, he appeared most annoyed with the footage being seen by people who aren’t his supporters.
“If I post some shit for my following to see, I post on my Instagram Story, and another nigga take it upon himself to download my video and post it on his platform, I’m not finna expect them to like my shit or be fucking with me,” he declared. “They gonna talk shit ’cause at the end of the day, that shit wasn’t directed to them in the first place.”
Ugly God released his debut studio album Bumps & Bruises in August 2019. The LP, which featured collaborations with Takeoff and Lil Pump, peaked at No. 46 on the Billboard 200
