Bambu Debuts “When I Get to Minnesota”

Bambu has found himself on the billing for 2012′s Soundset (an annual Hip-Hop festival) in Minnesota at the end of month (the 27th). To mark the occasion, he’s dropped “When I Get to Minnesota” as a precursor to his appearance at the independent Hip-Hop musical event, along with 40 other artists. Mid-western rap fans would be remiss to skip this one!

In celebration of my opportunity to perform at this year’s Soundset, I decided to record a little something with the help of my ace homeboy, DJ Nphared. The song speaks loosely of some of the local issues in the Twin Cities’ innercity. The socioeconomic problems in the area, though not as publicized, mirror that of most urban landscapes: gang violence, unemployment rate increases, home foreclosure, etc.

So, I’ll see y’all at Soundset this year and I promise to try and throw down… When I Get To Minnesota.
