Today, the magnetic emerging star BfB Da Packman drops his mischievous new single “Trick.” Listen HERE via Capitol Records/10K Projects. In a characteristically brief dispatch, the Flint, Michigan native reminds listeners just how uproariously funny he can be, all while retaining the trace amounts of menace that make each of his songs a perfect slice of dark comedy.
“Trick” is anchored by a hook that hears Packman croon, “F*** me good, your bills turn to my bills.” And yet those who are familiar with his work know that Packman is unlikely to stay in adoration mode too long. “Talking ‘bout you wanna take a trip to Miami,” he raps, taunting someone about halfway through the DB-produced song. “How in the f*** are you still living with your granny?”
“Trick” continues Packman’s buzz since the release of his acclaimed 2021 studio debut, Fat Niggas Need Love Too. Songs like “Stained Couch,” “Megan Knees,” and “Lost With Miami” show burgeoning pop instincts and—thankfully—a refusal to jettison the rough edges and killer instinct that have made him a favorite in Michigan’s famously grimy rap ecosystem.
Despite having just a short time in the spotlight—Packman broke through nationally after the pandemic began in 2020, with “Free Joe Exotic,” named after the subject of the early-lockdown hit documentary Tiger King—he has earned his spot as one of the most colorful artists in hip-hop. The rapper has earned rave reviews for projects dating back to STD and God Bless All the Fat Niggas, both released in 2019. As his star continues to rise, Packman is on a mission to find the funniest, meanest, most novel ways to cut to the heart of any issue.

About BfB Da Packman:
Bfb Da Packman is one of the sharpest MCs of his era, but he’s also one of the funniest figures in culture too. Though he broke out with a song about an outlandish reality television character (“Free Joe Exotic”), critical acclaim from Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Stereogum, and XXL among others for records like his 2021 studio debut, Fat Niggas Need Love Too proves that Packman is injecting new levity into contemporary hip-hop while reminding you that, at its core, none of this is a joke. The success of “Free Joe Exotic” earmarked Packman as an obvious future star and earned him the sort of luxury items that come standard with that kind of rap notoriety. As he prepares to release new music, he’s balancing a feeling of precarity with the sense from those around him that his natural charisma has him destined for stardom. Packman, who is now 27, was raised between his mother and stepfather’s house and his grandmother’s home. After running into some legal trouble, he moved from his hometown to Houston, where he landed a job as a mailman for the USPS. To this day, he approaches music with the sort of everyman ethic that gives even his most outrageous lines an undercurrent of credibility. Packman has become one of the most visible and crucial members of the creative vanguard in his state. And it’s all due to his dedication to an honest day’s work—because the next song he records might be the one that brings his uproarious style to the next batch of listeners.
