Everyone has dreams. Bodega Bamz chose to follow his.
The rugged rapper, who hails from Spanish Harlem, New York, didn’t roll up to the studios with a large posse in a big ass chain. Bamz arrived with his manager brother Ohla, donning my favorite wear: an unpretentious suit of humility.

From playing Rock the Bells to his forthcoming tour with Flatbush Zombies to growing up in a Christian household, Bodega Bamz talks frankly and with a good-natured spirit.
