On 2012’s Strictly 4 My P.A.P.I.Z., Spanish Harlem’s Bodega Bamz resurrected the dormant “Rap-o Clap-o” of his neighborhood’s original rappin’ salsero, Joe Bataan, but with the added goth trap-pings of A$AP’s current reign over Harlem World. It’s a good fit. Bamz spends el sábado living gigante like "Don Francisco,” but Sunday in church contemplating salvation. So when Trap Lord A$AP Ferg offers absolution by repetition on the chorus of “Say Amen,” he gratefully accepts.
