Prometheus Brown & Bambu (The Bar) – Lookin’ Up (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on February 22nd, 2012 by Hyphen

The first video from Geo & Bam’s Prometheus Brown & Bambu Walk Into A Bar joint project talks about where their families are from…and where they’re at now.  Dopeness.

Bambu – Something (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on April 10th, 2011 by Hyphen

Damn, can’t front…this was a tough video to watch.  Bambu’s remake of Adele’s incredible “Someone Like You” record takes a strong look at domestic abuse, particularly that emanating from the hip-hop community, and the visuals pull no punches.

As someone who can’t fathom even arguing with a significant other, I don’t understand how anyone can let a situation get to that point.  At the same time, I realize that I’ve lived a lucky life and every aspect of the nature/nurture of my upbringing has been fairly privileged.  For those who haven’t been as lucky, I hope nothing in your life ever drives you to this type of violence.  If it happened in your family, break the cycle.

Bambu – Rock On (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on February 26th, 2011 by Hyphen

While the video is a fairly quick viral joint, and the song itself isn’t as long as I wish it was, I love the vibe of this record.  Dope beat and heartfelt lyrics about Bam’s homeland that can be found on his mixtape with DJ Muggs, Los Angeles, Philippines.

Bambu ft. Geologic – Slow Down (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on March 7th, 2010 by Hyphen

Woah, this video goes hard.  Bambu links up with Geo and MTK for this joint off his upcoming project, …paper cuts…, dropping soon.  Seattle folks will get a chance to see Bam perform here later this month when the Blue Scholars lock down the Showbox for back to back shows:

J. Lately – Straight Outta Somewhere (mixtape)

Posted in Artists, Mixtapes on June 26th, 2009 by Hyphen

I’m always down to check out some new talent, especially when it’s co-signed by some folks I respect.  Peep this new tape from J. Lately, featuring appearances by our fellow 5-C’er, Tunji, along with Co$$ and Bambu.  I’m about half way through and I’m impressed with J’s flow and wordplay so far.  The beats are ill too…
