Bodega Bamz Shreds Raekwon’s “Ice Cream” Beat for New Freestyle
Here's another friendly reminder not to mess with Spanish Harlem. In a new freestyle on Power 106, Bodega Bamz shreds a classic RZA beat with three minutes of lyrical excellence.
For the occasion, the station's L.A. Leakers crew laced Bamz with the instrumental for Raekwon's 1995 single "Ice Cream." The "Don Francisco" spitter lays waste to the dusty piano loop with snarky tales of drug exploits. In one particularly hard stretch, he flips recent film titles into punchlines.
"Pay for pussy? I paid a girl to get out/Crazy pussy like white girl from 'Get Out'/Three of us could only keep a secret if two dead/I could run New York with no legs/The wolf came with sheep's clothing to buy a mink/These bullets tagged, you it like Stephen King," he raps.
The verse comes on the heels of Bodega Bamz sharing his album P.A.P.I. in April. To promote the project, he also dropped a freestyle over Just Blaze's beat for Fat Joe's song "Safe 2 Say." Bamz pays tribute to Joe's squad on the album's latest single, "Terror." Earlier this month, the Nuyorican spitter wrapped a 29-show tour with Smoke Dza.
In other news, the Showtime series Smilf, whose first season featured Bamz as an actor, returns later this year. Bamz will also return as a season regular.
