Brockhampton

Friday 4 February 2022

Brockhampton (stylized in all caps) is an American hip hop boy band founded in 2010 as AliveSinceForever in San Marcos, Texas. In 2014, the band rebranded as “Brockhampton”. Led by Kevin Abstract and formed partially through the online forum “KanyeToThe”, Brockhampton is a self-described boy band, so-called in an effort to redefine the term.

 

Complex magazine describes the group as “gay, black, white, DIY, ambitious, all-inclusive, and would-be pop stars,” and this diversity is what largely distinguishes their lyrics and sound.

The group consists of vocalists Kevin AbstractMatt Champion, Merlyn Wood, and Dom McLennon, vocalists/producers Joba, Bearface, and Jabari Manwa and producers Romil Hemnani and Kiko Merley, as well as graphic designer Henock “HK” Sileshi, photographer Ashlan Grey, web designer Roberto Ontenient (who also featured prominently in voice skits), and manager Jon Nunes. However, Kevin Abstract has confirmed that everyone mentioned are not the only ones working behind Brockhampton.
