Blimes & Gab

Filmmaker Series • E7

Blimes & Gab blended their unique styles to create Talk About It. Now, they're braving the highs and lows of releasing an album mid-pandemic.

Dynamic MC duo Blimes & Gab burst onto the scene with their first single "Come Correct." The single's music video quickly went viral, with over 10M+ views. Each with their own acclaimed solo career, Blimes (from San Francisco) and Gab (from Seattle) show their potency as a pair while tossing bars back and forth, creating a dynamic and unique sound. With their fun, powerful music, the two rappers have been making waves with their Blimes & Gab debut album Talk About It, released in June of 2020.Photos by Emma Cole

“Our work together as Blimes and Gab hones in on sisterhood, often referencing the battles we've fought together and stands tall with the confidence of both our insane pens combined.”

“I'm grateful to stay busy in this pandemic, but honestly the inspo has came from real life. The people I meet, places I go, and things I see and overhear inspire me the most!”
