SOB X RBE’s sophomore album has arrived amid uncertainty surrounding the group’s future.
On Thursday night, the quartet dropped Gangin II, the follow-up to their February debut studio effort. Many fans consider the release bittersweet, as it also marks SOB X RBE’s last project with Yhung T.O.—or so they believe.
In a now-deleted Instagram post, T.O. announced Gangin II would be his final album with the quartet: “Crazy How You make money and Create a New Life wit N***as you call brother and in the End they still disloyal," he wrote on Instagram Wednesday. “Sumtimes No matter how hard you try to keep shit together sometimes shit just be destined. Who knows what the future a bring tho.”
The post sparked rumors of SOB X RBE’s breakup; however, T.O.’s subsequent Instagram post suggested he and his fellow group member Slimmy B are still on good terms.
Will SOB X RBE carry on? Did T.O. have a change of heart? Only time will tell.
While we wait it out, you can stream Gangin II now on Apple Music, iTunes, and Spotify.
The project includes the previously released singles “Vibes” and “Made It.”
Slimmy B recently spoke about the group’s sophomore project and how it exceeded their expectations.
“We’re just making authentic music that came to us. It’s just the same thing with the second album,” he told Billboard. “[…] There are big expectations for sure. Expectations really be high in the first place for us. It ain’t about us exceeding our expectations, though, because it’s just about us versus them. We do what we do whether people like it or not, that won’t change shit; but our people are most likely gonna like it because they like our music. We give ‘em what they want.”
