Kevin Abstract, Brockhampton’s de facto leader, is back. This time he’s armed with a fresh new EP for your listening pleasure. Over the last couple of years, it’s been pretty hard to keep up with the brockhampton. Things with all the happenings in the world of BROCKHAMPTON are quite shuffled.
While the “best boyband since One Direction” lost a member over some abuse allegations back in 2018. They didn’t let this stop them, releasing a brand new album. Even hitting up Australia for their debut tour of the country.
However, from there, it just kept on ramping up. While they recorded a music video in the streets of Melbourne. The collective filmed another clip in Sydney, and even hung around for a mesmerising Like A Version performance. Since then, it’s been uncharacteristically quiet for the group.
Ever since publicly acknowledging his sexuality through music, Brockhampton frontman Kevin Abstract has been met with both praise and criticism. Along with some claiming that the rapper is merely “queerbaiting,” or rapping vaguely about his sexuality. This to get LGBTQ audiences to listen to his music.
Moreover, Abstract is having none of it, as is apparent in a new song teaser posted to Brockhampton’s YouTube channel. The song is titled “THE 1-9-9-9 IS COMING.” In the video clip, Abstract is seen lying on a brick wall. This before cutting to an image of a hand holding his disembodied head. Though as he sends a message to his detractors.
However, the rapper starts out by dispelling the rumors. The rumors says that he is simply trying to lay claim to a queer audience.
