When Bodega Bamz and the Martinez Brothers were introduced through a mutual friend, the New York artists only planned on working together for a couple tracks. “We showed him a batch of beats and hopefully we were just gonna get one or two on his new mixtape,” Steve Martinez tells Rolling Stone, heading to the airport in a car with his brother. “After that, we just vibed out and connected and said, ‘Let’s forget all these beats and start from scratch.'”
“We clicked right away because we literally had the same upbringing,” adds Bamz. “With the tape I wanted to showcase my range and versatility. From the artwork to the sounds, it’s refreshing – no one else sounds like us.”
