iTunes Review

A California emcee who got his start as part of Native Guns, Bambu is a community organizer, ex-Marine, and reformed criminal, known for his socially conscious, politically aware wordplay. He rejects both gangster bravado and the party-and-BS style, instead looking to educate and enlighten listeners with his thoughtful wordplay. ...I Scream Bars for the Children... is his first solo album, released in 2006, featuring guest appearances from his old partner in rhyme Kiwi, plus Geology, Eye a Sage, Kronic Plague, Farmer Joe, Kuttin Kandi, Panama, and Roscoe Umali. Embracing everyday people living the struggle and also giving dap to his L.A. home, Bambu gives us a quality mix of autobiographical content, vivid storytelling, revolutionary intentions, and sly humor. The result is a unique album that's not afraid to be deep but never gets overly heavyhanded. Don't miss "Home Cooking," "Life in Rewind," "East L.A. Story," and "Nicole."

Customer Reviews

Do not pass up on Hip Hop artist like Bambu who act upon what they preach!

not only does Bambu live up to what he speaks on, he is a model of what Hip Hop has always stood for: truth, struggle, and having fun. i don't believe anyone can speak against an artist of his standing without looking at his past. like the bio says he grew up in the real struggle, but fought against assimilating into it. so many other artist fake it, he lived it. if you need some enlightening cop Bambu, Blue Scholars, and Brother Ali this summer!

Bambu is much talent...

Bam definitely has the ability to drop a 5-star album, and he's shown progress from the beginning. I guess it's all a matter of him getting more pub and getting a better range of beats to choose from in return. He rides any beat cleanly, there's no denying that. However, this album fell a bit short with some subpar guest spots (no names named, it's pretty apparent) and questionable beat selection (not much variety and few dynamic tracks). I give it three stars because the sky's the limit for Bambu. More "Chairman Mao" and less "Crack Talk"...


I like Bambu, today was the first time I had ever heard his music and really liked it. It has a different style, and God know we need new music, songs with lyrics that say more than "I'm a flirt" or "Buy you a drank"....
