Brockhampton just dropped off the most interesting music video of 2017 called “Star”

Pop culture references meets The Smurfs meets Brockhampton.

The latest effort from Brockhampton comes in the form of “Star.” Dom McLennon, Ameer Vann and Kevin Abstract all spit verses dripping in pop culture references while driving around in a golf cart. The trio is painted blue, Ameer Vann delivers half of his verse with his tin foil wrapped head in an open oven and he can be seen at times throughout the video wearing a faux fat suit of sorts. The video is interesting to say the least, it’s also a perfect introduction to the world of Brockhampton, created by Kevin Abstract. The “Star” portion of the video ends abruptly once Abstract gets Orange Juice thrown into his face following a reference to sharing last names with OJ Simpson. A snippet of an unreleased track follows “Star.” The similarly lo-fi effort sounds and looks a lot like something The Internet  would put out. Stay tuned for the track to release before the group’s collaborative mixtape Saturation comes out later this month.

Brockhampton had a great 2016, the individual artists who make up the group all grew by themselves and that growth is apparent in their newest song/ video “Cannon.” Kevin Abstract, Merelyn Woods, Don McLennon, Bearface and Ameer Vann all contribute to the track. The group will hopefully be dropping the follow up to their 2016 project All American Trash in the coming months. Watch “Cannon” below and if you haven’t listened to All American Trash please familiarize yourself.

All I’m listening to tonight is “a wizard told me” by Ameer Vann

“And I ain’t seen the sun in a while. But, i can feel it on my skin when you touch me.. that’s love”

Often when I hear a new song and start to write about it I’ll talk about who produced it and what the artist has on the way, blah blah blah. You’ve heard all that shit before. Ameer Vann’s “a wizard told me” switched things up for me. I’ve listened to this track at least 25 times now in a row and I love it. I don’t even know what it is, I just love it. All of the lyrics are dope and heavy, full of passion and emotion. A little more than halfway through the song he switches. The tempo picks up and things get hectic. Ameer can be heard screaming about how wishes he were more aware and how he wishes god could hear him. After the brief moment of anger he switches back to a slightly more low-key (in comparison) delivery, rapping about wanting a change in the weather. You’re going to want to listen to this.
