Bambu, Brother Ali, Slug (Atmosphere), and Evidence Freestyle At Rhymesayers Radio
Yo.. for real.. they are killing it.. didn’t even know Bambu had that fire.. he spit straight.. consciousness. Who on the radio top 10 could do that. Kendrick could, but who else? Wayne, Nicki, Drake-cake, Officer Ricky, Chance the crapper, Wick-wack Rif Raff? Really? If you listen to these people, we really shouldn’t be friends.

“Sun of a Gun”
When I was growing up, a mixtape usually meant that there was a cassette that was made by one of your friends with a bunch of random songs. As a hip-hop head, it turned into themed tapes made by some of the world’s best DJs (see: DJ Q-bert’s “Demolition Pumpkin Squeeze Musik,” Babu’s “Comprehension” or Rob Swift’s “Soulful Fruit” for reference) – an unrelenting hodge podge of scratching, slick tunes, and other extras too lengthy to list. Over time, the concept of mixtapes have taken on a new connotations from a grouping of tracks that would essentially be covers or left overs that wouldn’t have fit on any other record.
Appreciate that, holmes!
From the latest mixtape, “Sun Of A Gun!” Click here and take a listen, leave a comment and come out to The Echoplex on August 24th if you’re in LA!

Leaving college (since I graduated) was easier than I thought, perhaps too easy. Shit didn’t relate after a while. Too many White academics who fetishized the radical history of the past and white wash that shit to distort it to treat folx incarcerated, living in that IE/Cali poverty like a bunch of fucking lab rats. My parents fought to get me out a negative situation and taught me to always keep my roots, even when Amerikkka’s school system and White supremacy tried to banish that shit away from me. Struggling to come out as queer and redefine my self has been a long journey already but its just begun. My parents always learned and adapted with me. I might be going up to the Bay Area, up to the 510akland, but I’ll never forget these IE streets. Tbh, if it wasn’t for Hip-Hop and other (queer) people of color at my university and in the IE I wouldn’t have got out of college strong. Shout out to these streets that taught me so much and raise a glass to the streets I’ll be calling home soon.
Here’s a track for the struggle. “Guerra” by Bambu ft. Quetzal.
This blog is always a Bambu appreciate blog.
