Pittsburgh rapper BrothaMans makes a foray into icy trap balladry with “Discovery.”
The song, one of the singles from BrothaMans’s new album, From the Beginning…, brings to mind the spooky, cavernous slow jams found on Travis Scott’s earlier mixtapes. A spacious instrumental, anchored by subsonic bass drones and sparse, percussive clicks, acts as an evocative backdrop for BrothaMans to entice a significant other with promises of romantic discovery, displaying some serious singing chops in the process. Dude even pulls the falsetto out of his back pocket a few times! The accompanying video is suitably escapist, featuring shots of verdant woodland and billowing smoke. All that’s missing is a shadowy compound populated by La Flame, T.I., and 2 Chainz.
