Kenyan rapper, Bamboo has become a pioneering rapper from that country to get into the international hip-hop game after he signed a marketing deal with Wu-Tang Clan’s former manager Cedric Muhammad on Monday.  Since the mid 2000s, Bamboo has been in the US working hard to hone his skills, learning the game and working with artists in the industry. Working between Los Angeles, New York and Atlanta he has been putting in work on new music which include a remix of Akon’s ‘Mama Africa’ and has a few mix tapes to his name.

Bamboo rose to fame with the duo K-South which consisted of him and another veteran Doobiez who goes by his alter ego Abbas Kubbaff. They named themselves after the tough inner-city Nairobi neighborhood called K-South (Kariobangi South) a perfect setting for great street tales. K-South was lyrically untouchable around 2000-07 making major noise on the Kenyan music industry with hits such as ‘Tabia Mbaya’, ‘Kapuka’, ‘Sitaki’, ‘Usilete Compe’, ‘Sitaki’, ‘Kariobhangi’ just to name a few. They sealed their name in the Kenyan hip-hop history books.

The rapper now lives in New York and has been searching for someone to direct him to where he needs to be as an artist. Cedric Muhammad is a journalist who writes for www.allhiphop.com, www.blackelectorate.com, and many others. He is an accomplished music manager who has worked with many hip-hop artists notably the multi millions album selling WU-Tang Clan. Cedric Muhammad is an economist who is a consultant for the African Union. His deep interest in Africa, its economy, culture and music drove him to set up a management company Hip-Hoppreneur Brand Management.

While networking with a group of African artist managers, filmmakers and industry practitioners recently, the name Bamboo came up as a perfect African rapper to get introduced to the US market. A meeting was organized and the rest as they say was Africa’s first rapper to work with a major US hip-hop industry insider.  Bamboo latest track, can be found here: http://soundcloud.com/bambooshakazulu/heya
