EDITORS’ NOTES

SOB x RBE went from grassroots success in their hometown of Vallejo, California—racking up millions of plays for their rowdy, heartfelt rap anthems—to cracking the mainstream with their Kendrick Lamar collaboration on 2018’s Black Panther soundtrack. You can feel that momentum on Gangin II, as the young four-piece balances raucous energy with a knack for super-catchy melodies. These guys know how to party, but not at the expense of reality: Over a lush Al Green sample on “Times Get Hard,” they grapple with the unexpected downsides of fame. Enjoy their infectious chemistry while it lasts—Gangin II is said to be the group’s last record before Yhung T.O. departs to pursue a solo career.
