Rap artist Bamboo, African's Hip-Hop king, has released his long awaited US debut album entitled "Rumble in The Jungle"

"Rumble in The Jungle", Bamboo's first US hip hop release is his fifth album, following hot on the heels of phenomenal success in Africa with albums such as the wildly successful ''Nairoberry'' in 2001 and ''Nairobism'', in 2002. Both of these early recordings are considered staple African Hip-Hop classics, firmly positioning Bamboo as a pioneer on the African Hip Hop music scene.

“I am excited for the US to hear my music and know what African Hip-Hop is about…” said Bamboo, African Hip-Hop recording artist “…people in Africa have taken what was first created in the US and mixed it with our culture and music what we are come up with is dope and people are loving it and that makes me proud”.

Bamboo is the first African Rapper to create serious waves in the US music industry. Born in Nairobi Kenya, Bamboo moved to the notorious Englewood neighborhood in California when he was a young child. By the age of 15 he was rapping in the streets of LA impressing his fellow Crip gang members with his style and flow.

His parents sent him back to East Africa when he became increasingly more involved in gang activities and it was in Kenya where his passion for music grew. By his late teens he was entering regional rap competitions and his personal style, flow and lyrical content created a buzz in the growing underground Hip-Hop movement.

Bamboo was quickly spotted by local recording studio executives who were blown away with his talent, and before long he had recorded a total of four albums including the wildly successful ‘Nairoberry’ in 2001 and ‘Nairobism’, in 2002 both albums are considered African Hip Hop classics. His success has lead to tours in key European markets and airplay in France, Belgium, Holland and the UK and numerous endorsements deals across East Africa.

Since moving back to the US earlier this year, Bamboo has already created a buzz featuring in showcases across the country and headlining in shows in New York, Washington, Texas and California. He is the star of the award winning Hip Hop Documentary Film ‘Hip Hop Colony’ and his song “Compe” is featured in the upcoming Hollywood movie ‘Primeval’.
