F.O.B – The Difference [Mixtape]


Portland, OR – Family Of Brothers is a crew based in Portland, Oregon that go by the acronym F.O.B and they recently dropped a 13-track mixtape titled The Difference. The tape is rich with melodic hooks, fierce rhyming patterns and a broad mix of sounds including remixes of Queen Bey’s “Drunk In Love” and Childish Gambino “3005”.

Features include appearances from Travla – who adds a distinct hardness to “Come Get Me” – and a handful of tracks featuring LaGoon. Some of the more stand out numbers include the “Creep” sampled “TLC” and Phil Collins inspired “In The Air”.

The Difference feels like a throwback classic with all the right modern elements. Production is clean and crisp and the mash of tuneful melodies and lyrical bars makes it easy to move to. You can cop this mixtape on Datpiff here and peep their video for “3005” below.
