Bodega Bamz Pays Homage to Big Pun and Fat Joe in New “Terror” Video

Bodega Bamz has established himself as a powerful presence in New York rap in recent years, and now he's back with the third video from his latest album, P.A.P.I.
In the visual for the Boger-produced "Terror," the Harlem spitter takes viewers through a tour of The Bronx, home to Terror Squad MCs Fat Joe and the late Big Pun. Ending up on a high-rise balcony later in the Wil Suárez-directed clip, the "Clout" MC continuously shouts out the lyrical assassins from his borough, at one point speaking to Joey Crack directly.
"When it comes to pickin' beats Joey's ear's amazing/And I'ma come clean, I feel you underrated/You made a youngin' feel proud about his heritage/Fuckin' bitches, 'What's Luv' was the medicine," Bamz spits over the piano instrumental, referencing Fat Joe and Ashanti's single from the early 2000s.
In the still above, Bodega Bamz even walks past a mural dedicated to the home team, including Prospect, Tony Sunshine and Armageddon, to name a few.
It's quite clear Bamz has the respect of the legends that have come before him. One month after the release of P.A.P.I.—an acronym for Proud and Powerful Individualz—Bamz embarked on a 30-day tour with rap veteran Smoke DZA. The duo's Money in the Bank Tour kicked off on May 17 in Cleveland, Ohio, and is set to conclude this Sunday (July 1) at New York City's legendary SOB's venue. Tickets are still on sale here.
