The BROCKHAMPTON takeover is officially on the way. Just last week, the group shared a cryptic clip to provide an update on what has been going on behind the scenes. The legendary RZA assured listeners that what’s coming up next for the group is sure to be well worth the wait, and BROCKHAMPTON officially shared a taste with their new video “Buzzcut.” In the new clip directed and edited by Dan Streit with creative direction by Kevin Abstract, the band is seen cruising around in a car on a ride where the landscape starts to morph as the lyrics play:
Who let the dope boys out? Thank God you let me crash on your couch/ Who’s my God that I’m prayin’ to now? Early two-thous, they tried to jump me in, Latino protection/ Any direction, you gave me your blessing. Texan, I text him, I told him I got him. Told him I made it to Hollywood, all it took was a summer to fail. A platinum record not gon’ keep my Black ass out of jail/ Truth prevails, this is real, miss my brother, I love my mother, drove all the way to Cali’ just to check up on me
BROCKHAMPTON’s last body of work was 2019’s GINGER, which boasts their Platinum-certified single “SUGAR.” Prior to that was 2018’s iridescence and then their SATURATION trilogy that started back in 2017.
Most importantly, in the aforementioned RZA clip, he also provides an update on the new music, confirming there’s an album either done or being very close to complete. He makes sure to let people know that if you weren’t paying attention before, this is the time to start. “This particular album, after listening to your other stuff and listening to this, the melding of it now, it’s like if somebody thought it wasn’t cool? N***a it’s cool now.”
