Brockhampton are a Texas hip-hop collective who also label themselves as "the world’s greatest boyband." Originally connecting online through a Kanye West fan forum, the group caught the attention of the music press in 2016 with the release of their ambitious, multi-genre mixtape, All American Trash.
Their music ranges from R&B balladry to more aggressive, hard hitting hip-hop in the vein of Danny Brown (with whom they have collaborated). They released their sixth record in April 2021, which Pitchfork labelled as “the group’s most focussed and impressive record yet”.
