Portrait of Bukari Bamstarr
A young emcee from the streets of Flint with a whole different outlook on life. Growing up he always knew he loved music, but never really knew that he would be making music of his own until he was introduced to the Hip Hop scene at the age of 12. He was drawn to the witty and smoothe flow that Rakim, Jay-z and other rappers displayed on their videos. By 16 he understood the essence of Hip Hop, Breaking, Graphing, Dj'ing, and Emceeing. By 18 he knew he wanted to be an emcee but his style of choice was not the most popular. People often called this style bubblegum rap because it wasn't violent and it lacked approval from those in the hood. Later he hit some bumps in life, getting involved into the drug seen, selling dope and losing friends. Seeing this a more raw educated and determined artist rose from the ashes. By educating himself and surrounding himself by friends of a strong muslim background, he was considered a nerd. Always having his nose in a book he acquired the name Bukarri, which in arabic means book. With an explosive style people said that he would be a star, hence the name Bukarri Bamstarr. He met up with some friends, and after a few duds he met up with The Essence entertainment. After being dropped from Rosta records, he later formed his own Rap Avenger Music Group. In hopes to change the Hip Hop scene in Flint, Michigan and bring artist together to make a difference in the music.
