bambu, bambu, sorry bruh, but i had to...

let this be a lesson on community politics, if you try to hide something from your people that you know they would appreciate...chances are, your partner or your sneeky japanese friend will have to call your ass out! emcee eye-a-sage has recently put her partner bambu on blast by posting photos of bam in the new indiana jones flick. it seems that when my favorite emcee is not puttin in work in the studio, he likes to...dress up like a cross breed of the cure's robert smith and superfly jimmy snuka. Photobucket Photobucket but keep ya head up bam, my pops was also once a young community-serving artist who needed to work as an extra. it's no indiana jones but my dad was one of the morlocks in the 1960 hit the time machine, sweartogaaad: Photobucket here's a little sample of what my brotha really looks like at the release party for his latest album "...i scream bars for the children..." (cop that shit if you don't have it already):

hahahaha! damn, put on blast by the japanese! i know, i know... it was the inner nerd child in me that wanted to work with george lucas (or, as i know him, georgie) and steven spielberg (or, as i lovingly know him, stevie)... you know, it's fucked up -- because when we shot, we had all kinds of martial arts fight scenes, i got to throw a bolo at harrison ford (harry) and we got great shots of us jumping through walls! but, after the "hollywood" magic -- we look like savages who make an appearance for absolutely no reason. nothing was explained. argh... what are you going to do?! anyway, the back story is, we're supposed to be guardians of a kingdom who come to life when triggered by invading pooties... fuck. tad, i love you, and in the same breath, fuck you!!! ha! thanks for putting your boy on blast!!!

Yep. It's official. We got his action figure in the mail yesterday and although the Ugha Warrior in the reference picture is his Korean homie (Hollywood loves nondescript ethnic types), his right nipple makes a cameo on the back of the box behind him. (And believe me, I know) Big thangs, big thangs!
