A Newark, NJ representer, Barry Bondz grew up in the city's South Ward. He uses his neighborhood surroundings as his musical muse. Just like a painter utilizes a paint brush to tell a story, Bondz uses the microphone to lyrically paint a picture to his audience.
Writing stories by taking real events and life situations is a joy because everyone can relate to it. Laying those real moments to tracks is the positive end result.
Active heavily in the mixtape circuit and even on BET hip-hop cypers, the independent artist was featured twice in 2014 The Source Magazine as a hidden gem. He had the streets buzzing after the release of his Glory and Glory Deluxe EPs released this spring. According to the artist, it's his best work to date: “No compromise,” he says. “These songs will stand the test of time.”
Also an entrepreneur and owner of Genco, LLC—a brand that focuses on lifestyle, his clothing company, Genco Apparel features t-shirts, hoodies and phone cases that proudly display his company logo.
