Woodgrain on CD

Bamboo MC's 'Woodgrain' is an East Coast rap album carrying on the lyrical legacy of Puerto Rican rappers like Big Pun with 'Nothing but raw beats and raw rhyming / From Long Beach to Long Island.' With a masterful flow adaptable to topics like the daily grind ('The Papers'), the ladies ('Girls') and his hometown ('New York'), Bamboo MC spits lines that will stick in your mind even as they blow it open. And for all the boom-bap influencing his Hell's Kitchen upbringing, Bamboo wields an astute ear for pop sounds, like the irrepressibly catchy 'Sorry Babe (feat.
