On tour in support of a new album called Ginger
, Brockhampton matches ’90s rap rawness like Wu-Tang Clan with the edginess of 2019 avant-garde artists. While it’d be easy to dismiss these cats as hipster bait, there is a level of skill and intention, as evidenced by their astute lyrical and production skills.
Also, with lyrics like “I spit my heart out, lookin’ out for my best interests / He gave me good head, peepin’ out while the windows tinted” and “I told my mom I was gay, why the fuck she ain’t listen?” it’s also clear the members aren’t concerned about being alienated for being visibly queer.
