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.

The first episode of Kevin Abstract’s Viceland show American Boyband is here. Titled “Makings of a Popstar,” the episode follows Kevin and Brockhampton as they make their way up the West Coast on the first leg of Abstract’s first headlining tour. According to Viceland, the series will follow Kevin along on his “mission to translate his faithful online following into real world success.” The rise of Kevin Abstract has been nothing short of inspiring and the show being put together by Vice does a great job of showing what Kevin and Brockhampton are all about.

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.

“Miserable America. Assassinate my character.”

Kevin Abstract’s latest song is an ode to the difficult transition to adulthood and finding a niche for oneself in a world filled with hate and misunderstanding. His album, American Boyfriend should be here sooner rather than later but in the meantime you’re going to want to check this out below.
