Bambu is a father, Emcee and community organizer. Raised all over the city of Los Angeles, as a young boy he experienced a life that other rappers have glorified, but rarely experienced. As he navigated through a turbulent youth, Bambu turned around the destructive energy that surrounded him and poured it into making music. Bambu has been lauded by his fans and contemporaries for his lyrical storytelling abilities and his prolific writing. Whether fictional or autobiographical, his vividly-detailed narratives are characterized by an honesty that is equal parts brutal, thought-provoking and liberating. Bambu music is not for mere performance - he utilizes his music as a tool for a larger goal - to reach and support youth who face similar issues that he did, and move them to question what goes on in the world with the eventual goal of organizing and activism. Bambu epitomizes the “been-there-done-that” list for a Hip Hop artist, and as part of the leadership for Beatrock Music, uses that experience as a coach for the rest of the artists, helping motivate and guide them into long successful careers.
