A couple of young rap music enthusiasts met online sometime in 2015 via ‘KanyeToThe’ (Kanye West’s forum). They eventually met at San Marcos Texas where they formed the rap collective now known as Brockhampton. The group is composed of vocalists, producers, a graphic designer, a photographer, a web designer, and the manager. Matt Champion is one of Brockhampton’s vocalists alongside Kevin Abstract, Merlyn Wood, Dom McLennon, Joba, and Bearface. Let’s learn more about him.
