Bamboo
Bamboo is a Kenyan born Hip-Hop artist who moved to Inglewood, California with his parents to when he was a year old. At the age of 17, his parents sent him back to Kenya to escape the potentially dangerous life they feared he might have if he stayed in Inglewood a city notorious for its high crime rate. Back in Kenya Bamboo transferred the success he was beginning to have in California to Nairobi, acquiring a record deal and producing his first album, "Nairobery," with the infamous K-South group that was based in Eastland’s Nairobi in 2001. Bamboo's style combines American and Kenyan content while being delivered in a markedly American accent and flow.
