North Charleston, South Carolina native Brandon Black has been fascinated with hip-hop since he was a child. Better known by his professional name Brvndon x Brvndon, he has been establishing his craft and talent for years. He uses songwriting as an outlet to talk about his thoughts on social issues, his love for anime, and his love for God. Brandon strives to open up to the world through his emotive lyricism and allowing listeners a deeper look inside his mind.
Brvndon x Brvndon’s newest track “Genjutsu” gives the listener a retrospective look inside of Brandon’s inner thoughts/ His vulnerability is on display and this is an undeniably admirable gesture for artists to provide for their fans. Using “Genjutsu”, Brandon is opening himself up to the world and revealing some of his insecurities within his relationship. The girl he loves loves him back, but they both tend to overthink their problems, which leads to more issues. “Genjutsu” acts as a cry for help and prayer to cease the madness he’s experiencing. We love the heavy meaning behind this catchy track and we can’t wait to see what Brvndon x Brvndon delivers next!

Hey Brandon! Thanks for chatting with us! How did you get started in music? How old were you?
Honestly I’ve always been into music, but I really got into it around the age of 14. I was always Rapping at the lunch tables in middle through high school with my boys. Staying after school to record songs. The teachers would let us use their classrooms.
What do you do to feed your passion for music daily?
To feed my passion, I’m always looking for new sounds. New ways to get my message across, and express myself. I strive to make timeless music, and to perfect my craft.
What does “Genjutsu” mean to you? How do you want your listeners to feel when they hear it?
Genjutsu, to me, is a state of overthinking. It’s a position where you aren’t necessarily afraid, but the situation you are in has you so bot thinking clearly. You end up creating problems for yourself that don’t even exist. I want listeners to be able to recognize when they are under Genjutsu and be able to break out of it.
Who are you top three musical influences?
Dang That’s a hard one. My top 3 influences, I honestly have to go with OutKast, Drake, and Lecrae.
What’s next for Brvndon x Brvndon?
What’s next for me? Making my dreams a reality and inspiring those to do the same along the way. Go Beyond, Plus Ultra.
Keep up with Brandon Black!
