ROCKAWAY RESURRECTION

THREE RESIDENTS TALK REBUILDING THE BEACH AFTER SANDY

“You don’t leave. If you leave, you wind up losing everything. This is what Rockaway people do. You never say, I’m done. This is your life; this is your livelihood. You have to fix it.”

Anne Hanovic

GEN F: BODEGA BAMZ


When Bodega Bamz was in his early teens, he hit a blunt laced with angel dust. He got scared, and rushed to the most welcoming place he could think of at the time. “I ran into church, singing my coritos,” he says, referencing Spanish hymns. First, though, he made a stop at Hajji Deli Grocery, the bodega on the corner of 110th Street and 1st Avenue infamous for its mural of fallen hero Derek “Bloodshed” Armstead, a cousin of Cam’ron and once promising rapper who died in a car accident in 1997. Bamz was lucid enough to procure a bottle of water from Hajji’s, pouring it all over himself in an attempt to extinguish his trauma. “It was a bad trip,” he says. “[I would] fuck around and be the first nigga to die off weed. You know how fucked up that would be? If you died off smoking weed?”

Main Attrakionz - 808s & Dark Grapes 2 (Bandcamp, 2011)On first listen this is sounding like the most mature and cohesive effort to date from MA to date. But it’s also entirely possible that they dropped seven albums that I missed last month and that one or more of those could be even more mature and show greater cohesion. The world may never know…
