C&L's Late Nite Music Club With BadBadNotGood

BadBadNotGood, known to fans as BBNG, is a trio from Toronto that came to prominence through blending jazz and hip hop styles.

They formed their ensemble as students attending Humber College, majoring in jazz. As part of a presentation to a panel of their instructors, they played a medley of Odd Future songs arranged as jazz pieces. The panel deemed that the performance had no musical value, but there were others who did not see it the same way. Leader and co-founder of Odd Future, Tyler, The Creator, saw a video of the performance on the internet and contacted the group to perform and record with him. This exposure gave the group the boost they needed to begin recording and releasing their own albums, the third of which is due this year. BBNG also plans to tour this year in addition to releasing an album.

Know any bands with interesting origin stories?
