BROCKHAMPTON- 1998 TRUMAN (single)
GENRE- RAP / EXPERIMENTAL HIP HOP
very good / 10
AHHHHHHHHHHH. Brockhampton, boyband / hip-hop group hailing from Los Angeles California release their second single of the summer. This new single “1998 TRUMAN” is fantastic. The beat on this thing is extremely moving, with a low rumbling baseline with high percussion loops and hard kicks to compliment the bass. Merlyn, Joba, Dom, and Matt all present amazing verses that showcase each of their characters. Especially Merlyn and Joba. Kevin also gives a great hook, with Bearface closing the track off. The only thing I didn’t like about this song was the ending with Kevin and Bearface because I don’t feel like having this sad melodic ending really worked with the hype of the rest of the song. Other than that, I think this is some of the best shit Brockhampton has released, the production is amazing (thanks to my favorite member <3 Romil) and it seems like everyone in the group has stepped up there game. If this is any indication of how the album is gonna sound, we could be looking at the best album of the year, I don’t wanna speak too soon though.
