  • Bambu ft. Killer Mike “Upset The Setup” Video | @BambuDePistola @KillerMikeGTO

    Bambu liberated this video today, which is actually an older video from his previous …one rifle per family album that dropped back in 2012. Read more of what Bambu had to say about the video below.

    This video didn’t come together as planned. What we thought would be the most difficult part of the video, getting Killer Mike to find some time to shoot, ended up being the easiest part. Mike shot his part in the green room of The Fillmore in San Francisco before another sold out crowd during a tour stop with The GZA. The difficult part was finding the proper footage to paint the “Gangland” story we wanted to tell. We couldn’t find the right “voice” for the theme and the editing was trickier than expected. Anyway, we wanted to let this one loose, if only to thank Killer Mike for taking a little bit of his time to crank out this video. Enjoy. – Bambu

    Zion I “Libations” Release | @ZionI

    Check out Zion-I‘s second EP of 2014 in Libations, a six-song mix of sounds from Zumbi and Amp Live. More information on their release below, and if you head to SoundCloud you can download each song individually for the time being.

    On the heels of the very boom bap oriented “Masters of Ceremony” EP, Zion I drops “Libations” the reflective 2nd installment of their 3 part series. “This project was heavily influenced by one of my best friends passing away suddenly”, states Zumbi, “His death put me in a mood to really analyze my life and how short this existence really can be. It opened my eyes and heart to both the ugliness and beauty of what we experience while alive.” Hence, “Libations” broods with reflection and deep emotion. “To me, libation is when you honor someone by pouring out your brew before you sip, its a sort of prayer. On this EP, I poured out some liquor for my homie, as well as my family, and myself” shares Zumbi. The EP features production from AmpLive, Headnodic, and newcomer Featherload. It also has veteran MC’s Mr Lif, Sadat X, and Opio featured prominently amongst others. Now ease back, and sip some of this heady wine from the Zion I cup.
