Bamboo "From The Get Up" (12", 1999)

A nice 12" release from Bamboo (who immediately shows love to Queens) in 1999 on Honcho Mogul Industries & Roadrunner Records. "From The Get Up" was produced by Domingo and was released as a single for his production album "Behind The Doors On The 13th Floor." For those unfamiliar with Domingo, he produced "The Dream Shatterer" on Big Pun's Capital Punishment, "Success" by Fat Joe, as well as joints with Masta Ace, Eminem, KRS-One ("The MC"), Ras Kass, and hundreds more. If you dig "From The Get Up," you'll also hear Bamboo on "Not The Ones To Sleep" on Domingo's first album and he's featured on his 2014 release "Same Game New Rules." I'd read rumors that Bamboo died, but I never heard that from Domingo so I generally ignore online rumors. Also check out "Bronx Legends Never Die" with Big Pun (R.I.P.) and "The Most Underrated" LP. Listen to the 12" below.
