THE BAR

Prometheus Brown (Blue Scholars) and Bambu like to rap. As the highest-selling duo on the label, they carry a very distinct style with their records, never departing far from what their fans have come to appreciate about their work prior to their collaboration. After the successful release of Prometheus Brown and Bambu Walk Into A Bar (2011), they hit the studio with their DJ/producer, DJ Nphared to record their sophomore group effort, Barkada (2014). Now, in a world overrun by trigger-happy police, countless Republican presidential candidates, and a coastal drought, The Bar has returned to unleash their most mythological effort yet: the Son of Barkada EP. It is inspired by their sold-out dive bar & arena performances, b-movies, post-match boxing interviews, Pinay nurses and paintings from Tyrese's house. With Son of Barkada, the trio of Prometheus Brown, Bambu & DJ Nphared firmly establish themselves at the pinnacle of mature Filipino rap in America.

As a group, The Bar has opened arena shows for The Dream and Kendrick Lamar, rocked a stadium with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis in Manila, performed in a backyard in Delano, California and managed to upset actress Rashida Jones with their love ballad titled, Rashida Jones. The emotional roller coaster that you are sure to embark on when these guys hit the stage may be physically overwhelming, so hydrate.
