The New New: 15 New York Rappers You Should Know


Bodega Bamz
Borough: Manhattan (Harlem)
Twitter: @BodegaBAMZ
Notable song: “P.A.P.I.”
Sounds Like: A Spanish Harlem spitter with an edge.

Why you need to know him: Bodega Bamz has the potential to shake the rap game up.  It’s been a while since mainstream hip-hop has been impacted by a Latino rapper, especially when names like Fat Joe and Big Pun paved the way. Bamz, along with his Tan Boys crew, bring a unique uptown perspective of the streets of NY. It’s gritty, fashion-forward rap that pushes what he has coined “Latin Trap.” With affiliations to Flatbush Zombies and A$AP Mob, don’t be surprised if the Tan Boys movement picks up speed.
