HERITAGE: Revisit One Of Backroad Gee's, Formerly Known As BRG, Early Tracks With Baller Gen (2017)


October 19, 2021

Before Mukta vs. Mukta, before "Party Popper", before even "I'm Free", BackRoad Gee was simply BRG and his sound was pretty different from the moshpit-ready hybrid sound of today.

Back in 2017 he had a much more melodic style, which in the case of "Whip It" with North London rapper Baller Gen came from a thick layer of Auto-Tune. His output at the time was much closer to trap than the drill-grime-rap fusion of today, but there are still flickers of the BackRoad Gee we know today, especially in the rolling Rs and occasional double-time flows.

Four years doesn't feel that long ago, but BRG's been on a long journey since then and his sound has evolved considerably—just look at the last time BRG and BG collaborated on "A Yo" to see what we mean. Even now, with tracks like "See Level" and "Wine", it feels like a new chapter's about to start. Whichever way he moves, we doubt it'll be what we expect.
