BK Bambino is starting to remember just who the Sheriff round here is.
The Chicago rhymer recently moved to L.A. to work on some new music, but before he left his took the time to record this Bridges-directed video.
Bambino parades though winter-time Chi in a fat suit, beard, and police uniform, basking in his position. If the outfit wasn’t enough of a clue, Bambino makes a point of letting us know that he’s got big plans coming. And with a swagger felt both on the track and on the camera, I can’t imagine those plans being overlooked too quickly.
Production is handled by D. Phelps, as will all of Bambino’s upcoming project, The Trailer EP. Phelps’ bouncy instrumental gives the Bambino the opportunity to flex his muscles and break into a fairly Drake-like flow, but with a confidence that clearly justifies it. This is an in-sync duo that might just help bring back the 1-rapper-1-producer model to the forefront.
Both of these guys have been putting in a lot of work over the past few months, quietly blowing up on the local scene, and the move to the West Coast is only going to widen their audience. I have a feeling that by the time the EP drops, they’ll have a cemented place in the increasingly competitive Chicago hip-hop scene. And that’s only the beginning.
Peep “Sheriff” and BK Bambino x D. Phelps - The Trailer EP when it drops on March 24th.
