I genuinely cannot get the beat from Boy Bye out of my head
huge Brockhampton merch drop
Is this true? I'm reading geinus right now which of course could be true or false:
“VICTOR ROBERTS” introduces a new vocal artist into the fray of BROCKHAMPTON, named Victor Roberts. This is the group and Victor’s first collaboration together.
On the track, he delves into troubled family history dealing with police and helping someone by bringing them into their household, but having that help betrayed when that someone gets into some bad dealings with crack cocaine.
Dom delved further into the details of his and Victor’s friendship in a tweet upon the release of the record, stating when they met and his happiness to give Victor a chance to voice his story on this track.
Victor responded to Dom, thanking him for allowing Victor the platform to tell his story, as well as saying BROCKHAMPTON “just birthed a whole ass rapper.”
how did bh bless me with sugar and peach and honey
Roberts told his story on Ginger Radio last night, I didn't hear it but he also posted to reddit a bit to explain who he was. I honestly cannot find it now, but he's not the guy Ameer set up to be robbed, he's an old friend of Dom's and that crazy story in the song happened when he was 7
I'll start off by saying this is probably their second weakest project for me besides All American Trash, but that doesn't really mean anything because they've been super consistently good from the very beginning
-No Halo and Dearly Departed are instantly two of the best songs they've ever made. Dom's verse on the latter literally made my jaw drop
- The singles are a LOT better in context with the album
- This is definitely their most mature sounding work, it feels really "adult" for lack of a better word. This is good and bad, it gets a little boring at certain points imo, especially towards the end which is where the album loses me a bit. Not really into Big Boy or Victor Roberts at all
- MVPs of this album are definitely Matt, Dom and Bearface
I actually think if the tracklist was rearranged it would be a little better, Iridescence was such a cohesive work and this one feels a lot more scattershot. Overall I'm still really happy with this album. Can't wait for the tour, and then later to see where they go after this (don't forget this is part two of their second trilogy)
PISS EM OFF PISS EM OFF
While I miss the chaotic and desperate energy of Iridescence, this album feels more mature and it comes from a healthier place so I'm happy for them
^^ kevin said he wants to tour the album so announcement soon?
I’m really digging this band lately. Sugar is so good
enough about Dominic Fike, why is Ryan Beatty not officially in Brockhampton? Lol
You're right, he kills it
Ryan got the haircut to be in BH too
Lol he can't be in the band because he was actually singing haha.
I love BH, but whenever they have to sing they have like an impossible amount of backing tracks
I can’t get over the hook on sugar, so good
I haven’t finished the album because I only listen to sugar
I was actually impressed at just how well they handled the multiple vocal parts when touring iridescence. Obviously lots of tracks, but a lot of groups like this would fall flat coordinating that many moving parts.
I've only watched live clips, never have seen an actual show! Definitely a lot of moving parts haha.
Personally I was really impressed when I saw that Joba sings all of his parts live, even the subtle background vocals, and I don't think he uses that many backing tracks. Kevin tends to rely on them a bit more though.
Joba gets points for doing J'ouvert live at all hahaha
Ginger is a vibeeeee
3 minutes in "Merlyn, this your mic? why it smell like that?"
this is gonna be a good show
FRESNO FAM WE OUT HERE
