EDITORS’ NOTES

Mingling Odd Future's anarchic spirit with the glee of early Beastie Boys and the curatorial chops of the A$AP Mob, BROCKHAMPTON have reinvented the rap group for the ‘10s. They flip the “rap group” label, insisting on “boy band.” Their world is one where whoopee-cushion saxophones soundtrack leader Kevin Abstract's reflections about his sexuality (“BOOGIE”); where confessions of loneliness (“BLEACH”) collide with samples from cult leader Jim Jones (“1998 TRUMAN”). On “STAR,” Abstract asserts he's “the only pop star with no money.” Their world is a bright, positive one—and above all, welcoming.
