Bodega Bamz links up with Glasgow producer Hudson Mohawke and enlists Youth Is Dead for his new banger “GHOST.” Dropping the new single on Friday (March 18) in celebration of SXSW and his birthday, the Spanish Harlem spitter comes hard.
“Fuck hosting parties, I don’t need that/I’ma tear shit down from the underground/Made it to the top on the block, how I get around/So you know I be that, that gangsta gangsta, I be at,” raps Bamz in the song’s first verse.
Though the single is short, clocking in at under three minutes, Bamz raps ferociously over the electronic video game beat while Youth Is Dead holds down the hook. This is just the latest of Bamz’ experimental sound, having dropped “Disney World on Acid” earlier this month.
“Anyone who has been paying attention to what Bodega Bamz and the Tanboys have been doing can’t say it’s lacking. Since I’ve been here and got my mark in the game, people been noticing and I can’t make that any more clear. It can be lacking in the sense that there aren’t a lot and there never will be a lot. That’s just how the business is. You’re never going to see the rap game dominated by Latinos. But you will see a few make it out of the crop who will be making as much noise as everyone else and that’s what you see Bodega Bamz and the Tanboys doing.”
