Eventful Weekend with Rhythm Natives in SF

My bro and his bro­hams, the Rhythm Natives, went to vis­it the Bay Area this past week­end. They were part of Bam­bu’s Smug­glers Tour in SF. I had the oppor­tu­ni­ty in tak­ing some pho­tos from both their shows: Fri­day, May 20th at 111 Min­na Gallery; and Sat­ur­day, May 21st at Rock­it Room.

Luck­i­ly, we sur­vived The Rap­ture or I wouldn’t have been able to get these post­ed. =)

Bambu’s “Something” Music Video

Caught sight of this from the home­girl Tri­cia:

In Bam’s words: “Some­thing” is a song that was released this past March, dur­ing Women’s His­to­ry Month in hopes of rais­ing aware­ness about vio­lence against women. These are the accom­pa­ny­ing visu­als, by Oishi Media, star­ring Tep Castil­lo. The Hip Hop com­mu­ni­ty rarely takes a firm stance against such issues and often times cel­e­brates such acts – “… all I heard was Pop­pa don’t hit me no more…” This song will be includ­ed on the re-release of Exact Change on the bonus disc titled, Short Changed drop­ping on April 29th.

Tell me this doesn’t hit you to the core.

Here’s the video “Some­thing” by Bam­bu.

Just trip­py see­ing that the video was shot in my bro Exaktoh/Glen’s+Wella’s pad. It’s actu­al­ly a dope place. Pret­ty nice size loft right smack in DTLA (near The Edi­son). I heard the build­ing is actu­al­ly being used for anoth­er shoot by Maroon 5; at least near it, so far.

Any­ways, dope stuff.
