about

Born in Oakland and bred in Berkeley, California, Bumbalo’s wears the Bay in his style and lyrics. First and foremost, he is a Bay Area rapper. But, with a raspy, smoky voice, Bumbalo flows a world of words influenced by years of absorbing everything Hip Hop has to offer

The Bumbalo album features appearances from Hip Hop frontrunners and old school legends. Mistah FAB and Goldie Gold of The Federation both join Bumbalo on the album’s first single, “Hyphy Cat.” Mike Marshall, who is best known for singing the hook on the anthem, “I Got 5 On It,” lays vocals that take you straight back to the 80’s … in a good way (see “Rumors” by Timex Social Club). Larry Thomas shines on behalf of New York City on “Watch Out for the Potholes,” while 5th Flow represents the south with class on “Young Fresh Clean Mean.”

Without a doubt, the production on this album is what takes it from solid to stand out. The production team is anchored by boy-wonder Asa Taccone, whose credits include the Saturday Night Live “D*ck in a Box” skit with Justin Timberlake, and collaborations with Danger Mouse, Cee-Lo, Gift of Gab, and Sarah Jones. Other producers include Nick Johnson, Matt Jocelyn, and Egon Brainparts.

The album is now on sale at select retailers and online at Collectiv.Com. Bumbalo is gearing up for a summer tour with other members of the Collectiv Records Family, so check out the website to find out when he’ll be in your neighborhood next.

Track Name: BUMB
B-U-M-B
Be cool the deadliest MC
A-L-O-E
Pray tell, the fuck do you know me?
OE White bird
sharp tongue that cut with the right words
Light herb Deep Purple
Smoke on the water it's nothin we keep Urkel

All day in a plastic ziploc
The Red light green call it trapped in gridlock
Oh Boy take a minute let it sink in
Got it? Good. Back to what I was thinkin
Hold Bomb like a Taliban quikstop
Hip hop's dead. Die with it or spit pop
Bitch watch. Ima get mine
Red wine and roast beef in the breadline

B-U-M-B
Be cool the deadliest MC
A-L-O-E
Pray tell, the fuck do you know me?
OE White bird
sharp tongue that cut with the right words
Light herb Deep Purple
Smoke on the water it's nothin we keep Urkel
