Brockhampton Released 1998 Truman
Brockhampton return with another new fresh tune called “1998 Truman” In 2010, Kevin Abstract made a post on the KanyeLive online forum (now known as KanyeToThe) asking if anyone wanted to form a band, to which over 30 users responded. After this AliveSinceForever was then formed, although the band only went active in 2012.
In 2013, AliveSinceForever released their debut EP album, The ASF EP. The lineup consisted of Abstract, Ameer Vann, Dom McLennon, and Mic Kurb (later known as Rodney Tenor). At the end of 2014, AliveSinceForever disbanded to rebrand as Brockhampton.
Following the release of Abstract’s MTV1987, AliveSinceForever rebranded as Brockhampton and added several new members, some of whom were recruited through Kanye West fan forum KanyeToThe. In January 2015, Brockhampton released their debut single, “Bet I” accompanied by a video directed by members Henock “HK” Sileshi and Franklin Mendez.
“Bet I” was removed from all streaming platforms in 2017, although the music video can still be found on YouTube. On June 16, 2015, Brockhampton released their second single, “Hero”. That same month, Brockhampton won the VFiles Loud contest, winning them a professionally directed music video for their next single “Dirt”, released through Fool’s Gold Records.
On March 24, 2016, Brockhampton released their debut mixtape, All-American Trash for free. The project focuses on highlighting the group’s individual members, and was led by the music video “Flip Mo”, performed by Merlyn Wood and featuring Dom McLennon.
