Bamboo’s new single FLASH TO THE TOP out today… hip hip horray! Go to bamboobeat.com to hear it & download for free while you can. A Philly born & bred hip hop cat with leanings towards blues, soul, & 50’s rock n roll, rapper Bamboo’s move to Pittsburgh (via the world) has him inspired in new ways. Always original, with poetic flows meant to jostle your mind & soul, Bamboo is back after his freshman album Metropolis with fresh ideas & beats to get yer toes tappin. Gotta love this design’s homage to Blue Note records of yesteryear… & because I didn’t know till I asked, that’s the root shakra down there in the blue circle. Hear more of Bamboo’s music as he continues to smash together east & west, dealing with his life at the edges of where the city meets the wild on MySpace.
