Ho99o9 (pronounced Horror and also known as HO99O9 DEATH KULT) is an American hip hop group founded by theOGM and Eaddy in Newark, New Jersey. They relocated to Los Angeles in 2014, where they attracted a strong cult following on account of their live performance, according to the LA Weekly, and attracted collaborators such as Ian Longwell who plays drums and produces for Santigold. Their style combines dark experimental hip hop with the aggression of hardcore punk.

The band has performed at the Afropunk Festival in 2014, the SXSW Music Festival in 2015 and Primavera Sound Festival in 2016. Ho99o9 has released two EPs, Mutant Freax and Horrors of 1999, accompanied by grindhouse-style music videos; their first full-length album United States Of Horror was released on the 5th of May, 2017.
