Artist Biography

BadBadNotGood is an Ontario-based jazz ensemble that blends soul-jazz, alternative hip-hop, and electronica. The band was founded by students at the Humber College jazz program in Toronto. Their first composed piece was a take on the music of Odd Future that the group uploaded online. This performance was viewed by Tyler, the Creator. In 2011, BadBadNotGood released their debut album BBNG which included covers from Odd Future, a Tribe Called Quest, and Waka Flocka Flame. This album was recorded in a three-hour session. Following the album release, the group recorded a live session with Tyler, the Creator before performing at the Nujazz Festival and Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Awards. BadBadNotGood released a second record BBNG2 in 2012 that was recorded within a ten-hour session and included originals as well as covers. The same year the band served as Coachella’s band in residence, playing as the backing band for Frank Ocean and six other sets. BadBadNotGood was then hired to work on music for the soundtrack to the movie The Man with the Iron Fists. The band continued to collaborate with many artists including Earl Sweatshirt, MC Ghostface Killah, Future Islands, and MF Doom for the track “The Chocolate Conquistadors” for the game Grand Theft Auto Online. The track was released in December of 2020 after MF Doom’s death but before it was announced to the public. BadBadNotGood’s most recent release is the 2024 EP Slow Burn.
