FEB 25, 2014 – JTMP has discovered a great Asian musical-activist somewhat off the radar, and one I think needs to be on everyone's radar; that artist is Bambu. Bambu is a Filipino-American who used to be in a gang, but got out of that mess and now uses his rap music to sow a social justice-conscious society. He is very politically active, and is not afraid to stir up controversy with strong political statements with the artwork on his album cover. One album has a Ku Klux Klan member being hanged, and another has Jesus as a child with an automatic weapon in his hand. Watch a video of his song "Like Us" below, and check out Bambu's website here.
