Old Man Raps

High production values; convincing character acting; subtlety, reflection and honest real talk about emotions are not often found within the fabric of a rap video, but Bambu's Old Man Raps, directed by Patricio Ginelsa is a pleasant and mature departure from the strip bar aesthetics of the majority of mainstream artists peddling porn in place of art.

Bambu describes himself as:

a dad, a comrade, an organizer, an artist, a worker, a fan, a soldier, a thinker, a do-er and a fighter until death.

...why so humble? add to that list, actor, lyricist, activist and fund-raiser and you can see why Bambu's old man raps carry the weight of authenticity and authority that they deserve.
