Newcomer Rucci Delivers The New Single “La Bamba”
Inglewood rapper Rucci wields his authoritative rasp like a weapon, dropping harrowing bars at a rapid-fire pace. Celebrating a new partnership with EMPIRE, Rucci shares “La Bamba,“ his new single. Running roughshod atop latin-inflected guitars and warm organ, “La Bamba” finds Rucci drawing clever parallels between the life of a corner fruit salesman in L.A. with the life of a Central American cartel boss. Kicking off with an unexpected and charming reference to West Side Story, “La Bamba” is a fascinating character study and a surefire party-starter, carried by Rucci’s crackling, snapping flows. Premiered by Los Angeles’ Power 106 station on Monday night, “La Bamba” is the first single from Rucci’s upcoming debut album.
