SOB X RBE

SOB X RBE

Rap collective SOB X RBE formed in Vallejo, California in early 2016, founded by young rappers Yhung
T.O, DaBoii, Slimmy B, and Lul G. The group's moniker stands for "Strictly Only Brothers, Real Boi
Entertainment." While still in their early teen years, Yhung T.O and DaBoii worked on music with
whatever rudimentary technology they had access to, often recording lo-fi songs on their phones. The
group took shape when Yhung T.O and DaBoii teamed up with neighborhood friends Slimmy B and Lul G,
with the four teenagers recording constantly in their free time and developing both their individual and
group styles. After releasing several songs online, SOB X RBE immediately caught the attention of fans
and fellow rappers alike. Bay Area rapper Sage the Gemini took a special interest in SOB X RBE and
became something of a mentor, taking them on tour and introducing them to other more seasoned
rappers. The group released more new songs, with tracks like "Different," "On My Mama," "No Love,"
and "Anti" becoming underground hits and fan favorites in a live setting. SOB X RBE quickly grew in
fame, drawing many comparisons to early N.W.A due to the ferocity of their rap styles, young age, and a
sense of the group being somehow greater than the sum of its parts. The group's self-titled mixtape
dropped in late 2016, and the next year saw most of its members release their own mixtapes amid
various collaborations.
