About “Mo Bamba”

“Mo Bamba” is a track named after Orlando Magic and former Texas Longhorn center Mohamed Bamba. He grew up playing basketball with Sheck and in this song, Sheck compares his experience as an up-and-coming rapper being targeted by labels with Bamba’s experience as a high school recruit being hassled by colleges.

  • How did this song come together?

    Sheck Wes:

    I had a meeting with a friend of mine who worked at Nike at the time, and I was just talking to him about all my frustrations with the labels that were sold after me, the managers, the people, all the real and fake. And, how my phone won’t stop ringin'. I went to the studio right after, 16yrold invited me to the studio with Day Trip, and we all started making this beat and then we made the beat. I was like, “Alright I’m gonna rap on the joint.” And I rapped on it, and then I, my friend Mo Bamba, who was a draft pick, asked me to put his name in the song or somethin'. But, then I started freestylin' but I was freestylin' about all the people callin' me, and I guess it was just what I was talkin' about, and I was frustrated about and I made this one-take freestyle about Mo Bamba and how I’m like Mo Bamba, like I’m a athlete. I was being recruited the same way as athletes do. So, that’s why I compared it.

  • Why does the beat cut out at the beginning of Sheck Wes' verse?

    Denzel Baptise of the producer duo Take A Daytrip explained to The New York Times that during the verse, his old laptop that had the instrumentals for “Mo Bamba” froze during the recording session, resulting in the beat dropping out:

    I had an older laptop at the time so that laptop always froze. So I’m like, please, please God, don’t freeze. I could see the playhead moving and then everything freezes and then there’s no music. So [Sheck] was like, “Fuck! Shit!–” and then right when he said “Bitch!” everything just unfroze. It was like he did a triple backflip and landed perfectly on his feet.

  • What have the artists said about the song?

    In an interview with Slam News, he discussed his hit single, “Mo Bamba”:

  • Why did Sheck Wes shoot the music video for "Mo Bamba" in a rough part of NYC?

    Sheck Wes was asked this question in an interview with Pitchfork, and he responded by saying:

    I’m still in the projects! That’s why I did the “Mo Bamba” video there.

  • How did this song chart?

    As of the Billboard Hot 100 chart dated December 8, 2018, “Mo Bamba” peaked at the #6 spot.
