New Release: Power Of Thought – “The Boom Bap Bandit” EP
Knowledge is Power, and for all my hungry head’s, here’s some food for Thought. P.O.T’s – “The Boom Bap Bandit” EP was dropped recently, and as Biggie once infamously said, “If you don’t know, now you know, NIGGAH!!!”.
If you consider yourself a “head”, and somewhat of a local Hip Hop aficionado, then you most certainly have come across the Boom Bap Bandit himself, Power Of Thought. As one half of the duo, Articulate Artists, the homie P.O.T has been a staple of the indie/underground Hip Hop diet. A few years back, he dropped his debut solo mixtape, “Dope Joints For POTheads”, and has since been an iconic torchbearer for the West Rand.

The Boom Bap Bandit is an eight track EP, which features the production of Empne, Anno Domini Beats, and P.O.T himself. But wait…. There’s more! On the one’s and two’s, he’s got cuts by Sizzor Hands, Tha Cutt, and once again, himself (is there anything he can’t do?). As far as featured artists go, he’s enlisted the services of Anti-Bullshit, Dice Mark, Safari, and drum roll please…. Diabolic (as in THE Diabolic). Now before I continue, if the aforementioned information doesn’t induce a sense of jealously, and a compulsive necessity to cop that shit, then you my friend, have no business in our “real” Hip Hop discussion.As always, P.O.T brings the heat and exhibits the qualities that are essential to transcending the everyday riff-raff we encounter on a regular basis. Each individual that was chosen to be a part of this project, adds something unique, and was meticulously selected to compliment his expression of the art form that he lives and breathes.
The Boom Bap Bandit EP is available for streaming on Soundcloud, or for download on Bandcamp, for the low price of $5 (Shout out to Ramaphosa for strengthening the Rand). Make sure you check it out, and support a local artist who’s putting in the work.
Mad love from the underground.
