OFB ARE back with new single “BLM” featuring Abra Cadabra.
“BLM” samples the hypnotic Coldplay anthem “Trouble”. OFB are the only collective and the second ever artist, besides Drake, to receive approval to sample a Coldplay track.
Coldplay will be donating all profits from the sample to Broadwater Farm Community Centre and Juvenis. Bandokay, Double Lz and fellow Tottenham star Abra Cadabra go verse to verse on the introspective single.
The release comes during Black History Month, and fittingly sees the artists comment on the current social unrest faced by black people around the world and detail their experiences as young black men.
“BLM” follows on from a year of single releases from the North London rappers.
Between their own single releases and guest features, OFB now boast to over 200 million combined streams and views and have amassed over 7 Official Chart appearances, in addition to their top 40 Album chart appearance for debut project Frontstreet.
Starting off showing their storytelling abilities across Drill beats in 2017, Bandokay and Double Lz quickly amassed a cult following.
Releasing their debut mixtape Frontstreet in 2019, the body of worksolidified the rappers as the ones to watch, and garnered love from fans, peers and media alike.
Not limited to any genres, the pair have guested alongside the likes of iLL BLU, Deno, Mastermind and more for their crossover raps.
