With the excellent compilation of remixes of Strictly 4 My P.A.P.I.Z. recently releasing, Bodega Bamz continues on his quest to dominate airwaves and earbuds alike by showing his versatility as an artist. Bamz has been steadily garnering attention for the past few months, with the New York rapper combining an unabashed affinity for boom-bap with trap and Latino rap heritage. Listening to tracks like “Say Amen” or “Dear Non-Believers Pt. 2,” Bamz makes staying true to his background the focal point of his music. It makes sense then, that Bamz’s Essentials would be necessarily minimalistic. After all, a man so intent on conquest through rhetoric only needs a flag for his movement, a sword to live by, and some divine inspiration. Enjoy a look at Bodega Bamz’s Essentials above.
