Drain Gang (formerly known as Gravity Boys Shield Gang) is an artistic group, primarily focusing on music, consisting of Swedish singer/rapper Bladee, singer/producer Ecco2K, Thai singer/rapper Thaiboy Digital, and Swedish producers Whitearmor and Yung Sherman. The group is also known for its fashion output, often walking for brands such as ALYX Studio and modeling for HOMME magazine
The group formed in 2013 in Stockholm. Thaiboy Digital was residing in Sweden at the time. Bladee and Ecco2K had previously collaborated as the grindcore band Krossad. Signing to the YEAR0001 label, the members of Drain Gang gained prominence in the cloud rap scene from their collaborations with labelmate Yung Lean. Producer Yung Sherman is also a member of Yung Lean's Sad Boys collective.
In 2015, Thaiboy Digital's visa expired and he was deported from Sweden. Through the internet, he has managed to continue collaborating with the other members from his new home in Bangkok. He and Bladee released a collaborative EP titled AvP in 2016, which featured production from both Whitearmor and Yung Sherman.
In 2017, Bladee, Ecco2K and Thaiboy Digital released their collaborative album D&G, featuring production from members Whitearmor, Yung Sherman, and frequent collaborators Yung Gud, Woesum, and Australian-based collective Ripsquad.
In 2019, the group released a collaborative EP titled Trash Island. Whitearmor served as the executive producer, while Ripsquad and German producer Mechatok returned to contribute additional production. The EP was a surprise release, as no announcement was made on YEAR0001's nor the group's various social medias
