Known for their innovative jazz takes and collaborations with artists like Kendrick Lamar, Tyler, The Creator (born Tyler Gregory Okonma), Earl Sweatshirt, Danny Brown and Ghostface Killah, Badbadnotgood originally formed when the three members met while enrolled in the jazz program at Humber College in Toronto. The group covered “Lemonade” by Gucci Mane for a panel of their jazz performance instructors, who didn’t exactly appreciate their rendition. However Odd Future rapper, Okonma saw the genius of their interpretation and helped the video go viral after the trio uploaded it YouTube. Since then, the group, now a four-piece (five when they tour), have grown to be so much more than just the next buzzworthy band in the indie circuit.
