Yes this interview is slightly lengthy, but Bambu is an artist who’s message I completely admire and respect, so I didn’t want to cut too much out and there was a great deal that I wanted to talk about.
We of course spoke about his newest album “One Rifle Per Family”, where he said that he initially wanted it to be about family but it evolved into being about community. We also spoke about the features including Killer Mike, Rocky Rivera, and their son Kahlil.

If I can get Slick Rick on a track we’re gonna paint a picture, we’re gonna make a movie. Miramax will probably gonna have to produce the video.”
He also speaks on his next project “Hero” and how important it is to be held accountable for what you say. “As you can see on Twitter now I’m verified. You gotta account for everything you say now. So now is the time that I feel like I gotta focus mostly on what I have to account for. These new rappers are very very talented.. Just gotta keep up with them and write better than them and harder and more content, good lyrical content.”

He speaks on his newest project and newest ventures with his company Paperose Imagination, his history with music and wanting to change the musical standards, amongst many more topics.
“I tell people all the time through thick and thin, I’m gonna live and die by my samples. That’s who I am and that’s what helped raised me and that’s what helped open the doors to a project like ‘Heart Pounding Panic’. Just for the simple fact that sampling taught me so much”, he replied when asked about the comparison between this project and his previous, “Produc Placers 6”.
He later confesses his aim for his latest project. “I really want to push the musical standards as far as hip hop music goes, with rhythmic music, or even pop music. WIth “Heart Pounding Panic” I really wanted to tear down some walls as far as the genre position of the album.. I want people to feel good about listening to hip-hop again. I want people to be able to play it at a cocktail party and feel like they can listen to it without feeling bullied or feeling aggravated of some sort. I want people to feel proud again.”
