Abstract recently confirmed that Brockhampton are not splitting up following the release of his solo work.
The rapper explained that he shared the solo material because it was “too personal” or “self-indulgent” to include on his band’s releases.
“I’ve been making a ton of music some for the group some for me just bc some shit is too personal / self indulgent to Put on a group album and thats also a dif character all together but this summer I want all that shit out tired of holding records Back,” he wrote.
Elsewhere, Brockhampton were recently nominated for Best International Group at the 2019 BRIT Awards. Speaking to NME on the red carpet, they refused to say much about their next album but said it was “not going to be what anyone expects.”
Brockhampton will perform at this year’s Lovebox Festival in London (July 12-13), joining the likes of Solange and Chance The Rapper in Gunnersbury Park.
In 2018, Abstract spoke about how he wanted to be considered an icon, rather than a queer icon.
