El Barrio Spanish Harlem native Bodega Bamz's breakthrough mixtape 'Strictly For My
P.A.P.I.Z' dropped in 2012 during
the 'New, New York' movement, when the next generation of East Coast talent - A$AP Rocky
& the rest of the
Mob, Joey Badass & the Pro Era crew, Action Bronson - were moving from the underground
to the mainstream.
What sets Bodega apart from his peers is how uncompromisingly Latino he is, part Puerto
Rican and Dominican, the
tape is littered with Spanish slang, lyrics and samples. The DJ Carnage produced Don
Francisco sees Bodega rapping
over a trumpet laced beat, sounding like a Miami gangster flick. The tape features guest
spots from A$AP Ferg, on the
hard hitting single 'Say Amen', and Flatbush Zombies on the choice cut 'Trilla.' The
production on P.A.P.I.Z handled by
P on the Board, JohnBoyBeats, NED and others, is so uniformly good that a lesser rapper
would be totally overshadowed,
but it's where Bodega showcases his ability and versatility on the mic. Legendary producer
cooks up somer serious heat on 'Tres Puntos.' An essential East Coast tape!
