The LA-based boyband’s project is a non-stop party and we got the invite.
“Free my nigga Roberto” is probably the most accurate way of describing a BROCKHAMPTON video. Although he isn’t a rapper, Roberto is a staple character; consistently introducing himself in Spanish at the start of the band’s videos, followed with a vague tidbit. What a way to make a first impression – it is as random as the group’s distinct dynamic. The self-proclaimed “self sufficient creative enterprise” BROCKHAMPTON is comprised of rappers, directors, photographers, engineers, producers, graphic designers, and DJs (12 kids in total). This meeting of the minds gives way to aleatory introductions, odd visuals, and good time rap.
For the third week in a row BROCKHAMPTON has released a new single accompanied by a Kevin Abstract-directed music video.
“SWAMP” is our favorite banger from their sophomore album SATURATION II:
But so far all the tracks are tuned for fun rap. Following “SWAMP” and “GUMMY” the LA-based boyband recently released “JUNKY” – the third single from the album.
