In the heart of Chicago, Illinois, a city often referred to as ‘Chiraq’ due to its violence and gang culture, emerges a beacon of self-expression and resilience. They are the CGB Brothers, also known as the Can’t Go Back Brothers or The Cantgo’s. Birthed from trauma, adversities, and achievements, music for them is not merely a form of entertainment but a lifeline.
The CGB Brothers have found music to be a therapeutic outlet, a means to express their experiences, emotions, and reflections on their past and present. Their favorite lyric, “So high like Penicillin,” is a testament to their creative wordplay and resonates with their aspirations to rise above their circumstances.
Their ambitions are far-reaching. They aim to achieve remarkable success levels and exceed their own visions and goals. Longevity in the music business is their primary objective — to continue growing, evolving, and staying consistent while remaining true to themselves.
The CGB Brothers have recently dropped two visuals, adding to their growing discography. The first, “Panera Bread,” was shot by Nomo Hero’s, currently one of the hottest camera companies and labels in The Raq. The second, “Raq Killers,” shot by Done By Mata, offers a raw and unfiltered look at their reality. Both visuals also feature their brother, “Cantgo Trello.”
The CGB Brothers represent the spirit of resilience and creativity in the face of adversity. Their music narrates their journey, offering an authentic and poignant reflection of their experiences. As they continue to rise in the music industry, they carry with them the essence of where they’ve come from and the vision of where they’re headed.
