Episode 2 covers EMMANUEL — Ameer Vann’s controversial new EP. Vann was kicked out of the LA rapping, singing, songwriting, producing and designing collective BROCKHAMPTON last spring due to abuse allegations and ordering a robbery on band member Dom McLennon’s friend, and hasn’t come out with music or much of a public outing since.
This is his first — and likely not his last in the near future. It comes just weeks after BROCKHAMPTON’s release, GINGER. Click here to listen to Episode 1, which reviews GINGER.
Vann grapples with regret, suicidal thoughts, a troubled past and replacing vacuums with drugs and substances. It’s a chilling, devastating picture of Vann’s fallout with the group — but it also paves a path for his solo career in the future.
