Hailing from San Marcos, Texas (but claiming “the internet” as their true birthplace), BROCKHAMPTON are not your average rap group. Don’t even call them one to begin with: “The All American Boy Band” is how Kevin Abstract, JOBA, Ameer Vann, Matt Champion, Dom McLennon, Rodney Tenor, and Merlyn Wood describe this one-of-a-kind crew.
After winning the VFILES LOUD! competition with their offbeat style and boundless energy, BROCKHAMPTON dropped the “Dirt” single on Fool’s Gold, enthusiastically premiered by Ebro (“Bring that back to the top… I like this!”) on his Beats1 radio show. Now, the maniacally fun “Dirt” gets an equally bugged-out video, directed by Tyler Mitchell and executive produced by VFILES. Taking place at a surreal, slo-mo photo shoot, the “Dirt” video captures BROCKHAMPTON’s camaraderie and next-level appeal IRL. Listen to “Dirt” now!
Ten minutes into Go To Hell And Chill and she gives you this look… Nick Catchdubs and Showyousuck bug out and battle demons from the comfort of their living room in this extra-trippy clip for “Drop,” directed by Matt Kliegman (aka STEAMCLAM) and premiered today on The Fader. Check more dank jams on Nick’s Smoke Machine album (featuring collabs with the likes of IAMSU, Troy Ave, Heems and MNDR) and look out for the More Smoke remix EP next week (10/9) with dance-y takes on Smoke Machine cuts from Buku, Slowbody, Udachi and more!
