Bambu is a father, MC and community organizer. Raised in 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. 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, support and ultimately organize youth to work toward social and systemic change. Bambu has reached audiences across the country and internationally with his explosive and engaging live performance -- especially significant are his sold out headline shows at notable venues in New York City (SOB's), San Francisco (Brick & Mortar) and Los Angeles (Viper Room, Knitting Factory, The Roxy and The Echo). Being paired on concert billings with such acts as Immortal Technique, Blue Scholars, Zion I, Psycho Realm, dead prez, Evidence, Atmosphere and Brother Ali, to name a few, has afforded Bambu the opportunity to garner fans from varying demographics. With a catalog of music stretching the span of ten-years, the Los Angeles emcee has allowed his fans to witness the growth of a gracefully honest artist, who truly embodies the sentiment of the people.
Reverie, the graffiti vandal from North East Los Angeles, has created an empire of fans across the West Coast and her internet buzz is a testament to her hard work. With a host of highly viewed YouTube videos and a live show resume that stretches across the nation, she is primed to go down in Los Angeles' Hip Hop scene as one of it's most prized artisans!
The Yacht Klub's, Kixxie Siete, who helped sell out The Echo with Bambu last April, dropped his 7AM mixtape with producer Bambeeno and it quickly became a fan favorite. Artie McCraft has been strengthening the Yacht Klub's reach with his own brand of hard hitting lyrics and machine gun flow. Together, the Yacht Klub emcee's are releasing, Lo-Tide - a collaborative mixtape that will keep you good for the summer! "Y's" up for Kixxie and Artie as they add another bullet to their live show resume.
Ruby Ibarra has opened for the who's who of the Underground Hip Hop scene and has managed to create a very strong fanbase overseas. Her DJ Kay Slay hosted mixtape, Lost In Translation has circulated through the internet rapidly and to great review. She's sure to make you a fan with her live show, so make sure you get those tickets early!
As the co-host of In The Cut with DJ Revolution (Wake Up Show) and 1/2 of the rap super group Malcolm & Martin, KB iMean has worked with Hip Hop legends closely and his music is proof of that. With his effortless flow and critical perspective, KB's music translates into a great live set. Definitely not one to miss!
