It’s been over a year since Bodega Bamz dropped off his last EP. That was his project with Salaam Remi, entitled Bodega’s Way. Since then, the wordsmith has been busy crafting new material and a new album for our listening enjoyment. With Yams Heard This set to impact on August 21st, today, Bodega is back with a brand new single called “Who U With.” The track is the lead single from his impending album, which is set to serve as a dedication to the memory of the late A$AP Mob founder A$AP Yams. BAMZ spoke about the upcoming album and the inspiration behind the title.
The wordsmith stated: “Originally, I had the idea to drop a project called WWYD (What Would Yams Do). There was a time when I was lost. My homie Yams, who I would run all of my music by, was my sounding board, who always knew what was hot and who knew when I had a track ready for the streets, was no longer there.” He went further to say, “So the reason why I named this album Yams Heard This is because if he was still alive today, I know he would have loved the vibe and energy of this album and would have given me his stamp of approval. These are the type of songs he would have wanted to executive produce.”
“Who U With” kicks off the campaign, a track that Bamz describes as “good ole-fashioned Bop music.” Check out the contagious new single in the stream below and look for much more from Bodega Bamz in the weeks to come.
