Bambu DePistola’s career has paralleled the climb of Beatrock since its inception as a clothing brand from Long Beach. His first official band t-shirt was designed and released by Beatrock back in 2003, and when Fatgums took on the task of building the musical arm of the brand, it was a natural fit. Together, Bambu and Fatgums have helped grow the label into one of the most fruitful and culturally forward record labels in the Underground Hip Hop game. As the resident adviser for the team, Bambu aims to create an artist-driven, socially responsible company. With Fatgums and Kat Carrido, Bambu looks to advance and strengthen the social capital the label has garnered in its decade of existence.
