What is the meaning behind ‘P.A.P.I.,’ Bodega Bamz’s latest album title? “It means a few different things,” the Harlem rapper explained during a recent visit to MASS APPEAL HQ. “One it’s a term of endearment in our culture—and also it’s the moniker of the connect, the drug dealer.” But for his new album, Bamz remixed the term into an acronym that stands for “Proud and Powerful Individual.” The founder of the Tan Boys movement spoke about solidifying the Latino legacy in hip hop and pioneering the Spanish trap sound.
