New York hip-hop is definitely not dead with Joey Bada$$, Action Bronson, and A$AP Mob all releasing raw audio. This year, fellow New Yorker Bodega Bamz is set to release his first official LP, Sidewalk Exec. This is coming three years after his debut mixtape Strictly 4 My P.A.P.I.Z. The 12-track project Sidewalk Exec captures the hood streets of Spanish Harlem and lifestyle through Bodega’s awesome rhymes and beats produced entirely by V’Don. The project has features coming from fellow NY natives Flatbush Zombies, Youth Is Dead, A$AP Yams (RIP), and Joell Ortiz, along with artists like A$ton Matthews and Lil Eto of course.
The album is now available to purchase on iTunes, and if you’d like Bodega to sign your physical copy head down to Best Buy tonight at 7 pm. Also if you’d like to see him in concert after you get your album signed he will be at SOBs tonight, tickets are on sale here.
And if you missed it, last night Bodega stopped by Hot 97 to speak with Peter Rosenberg on Real Late about the album and passing of A$AP Yams which you can watch here:
