Brick Wolfpack are a rap collective out of Miami, Florida who have been repping their city hard over the past few years. With a gritty street sound reflecting the diverse Miami hip hop scene, Brick Wolfpack have carved out a name for themselves with stellar mixtapes and electric live shows. As their profile rises, the Wolfpack continue to prove themselves as one of the most talented rap crews emerging from the Sunshine State.

Background and History

Brick Wolfpack were formed in 2012 by high school friends Marcus “Big Lok” Lopez, James “Ghost” Casper, and Manuel “Dutch” Domingo. The trio began rapping and producing music together as teens influenced by Miami legends like Trick Daddy and Rick Ross.

The group caught their first break when Miami hip hop personality DJ Epps played one of their early tracks on a local radio show. This garnered major buzz around the Wolfpack’s hard-hitting street sound.

Brick Wolfpack self-released their debut mixtape ‘Brick Squad’ in 2014. The 13-track project featured production from Miami beatsmiths like Hi-Tekk and vocal features from Haitian rappers Vodou Kile and K-Dans. Singles like “Bricc Boi” and “Go Hard” highlighted the Wolfpack’s menacing flows and formed the foundations of their unique sound.

The group spent the next few years touring Florida’s club scene and releasing one-off singles. In 2016, they signed a deal with Miami indie label Slip-N-Slide Records and dropped their 15-track mixtape ‘Midnight Prowlers’. The project expanded the Wolfpack’s sound with R&B-influenced tracks like “Late Nite Lady” alongside uncompromising street cuts like “Brick City.”

Most recently in 2022, Brick Wolfpack returned with their official studio album debut ‘The Pack Is Back’ released via Slip-N-Slide. The LP shows the trio’s musical growth with more melodic flows and reflecting on their come-up days on tracks like “Started from the Bottom.” Guests include Florida heavyweights Kodak Black, Denzel Curry, and YNW Melly.

Musical Style

Brick Wolfpack have a diverse Miami street sound that blends elements of trap, gangsta rap, and dancehall reggae. Their production often features booming 808s, eerie synths, and samples of Caribbean music. Lyrically, they rap about classic hip hop themes like hustling, violence, and life in Miami’s rougher neighborhoods.

While rooted in contemporary trap music, the Wolfpack showcase various flows drawing from Miami’s diverse hip hop landscape. Big Lok spits bar-heavy verses with a deeper delivery, while Ghost has a more melodic bounce. Dutch often provides rough ad-libs and a toasted patois flow reflecting Miami’s Jamaican influence.

Sonically, the group channels Miami legends like Trick Daddy and Rick Ross but also aren’t afraid to get experimental. They’ve shown an ability to craft radio-friendly hits as well as uncompromising street anthems. As the trio continue to evolve, they’ve cited influences like Pop Smoke, The Diplomats, and reggaeton artist Anuel AA.
