Interview: Bujemane

Bujemane is a Tacoma artist, from Federal Way. He says, “Tacoma has adopted him as their own." He first started making music in 2009 and throughout his nine years has been making his mark. Last year, he performed in the Upstream Music Festival alongside some up and coming artists from Seattle. Bringing back the jerking era, Bujemane’s new album Sorry We Couldn’t Wait For You shows his artistry and how easy he makes his craft sound. January 18th he will be performing at Neumos at 8pm with local artists Nacho Picasso, Kung Foo Grip, and Flight Djs. If you can’t make the show get to know him a little more from the interview below.

Why don’t you like to be called a rapper?

Time and place and space this inclusive term “rapper” cuts short the other aspects and avenues I can do.

When was the first time you knew you wanted to be a musician?

Fifth or sixth grade, I realized I was cool and should get paid for it.

Did you play any instruments?
