Bay Area rap crew SOB X RBE are set to take over the rap world and beyond. They've opened for 21 Savage and Post Malone, have performed their own headlining, sold-out shows, were recruited to contribute to the Black Panther soundtrack by Kendrick Lamar, and released their debut album Gangin' back in February.
In The FADER's latest cover story, DaBoii, Yhung T.O, Slimmy B, and Lul G sit down with the publication to talk about their Vallejo beginnings, originally bonding over their love of sneakers, the NBA, and gaming.
They even discussed Millennial dating habits, with T.O. declaring, “Netflix and chill is not the vibe,” continuing, “I might throw on some Black Ink from time to time but, otherwise, just turn off the lights and make love to me.”
The fact that all four members of the crew started out as solo artists could be cause for concern as they each pursue their own careers in music separately rather than together, but that doesn't seem to phase SOB X RBE:
“We were all solo artists originally, so I feel like everybody’s gonna take their own route as their careers go and get noticed for what they wanna be known for, and together as SOB X RBE, we can do that,” T.O says. “At the end of the day, even if we stopped rapping, it’s still gonna be SOB X RBE ‘cause we all family. My mom is they mom and vice-versa. We always gon’ come back and be SOB X RBE.”
