Enter the group chat with Bummy Boys and Jäger Music.
Dutch hip-hop sensation Ray Fuego is back at it again (not that he ever stopped). A known rebel with a cause, Ray is not the one to shy away from speaking his mind, one fiery record at a time: 2019 saw the release of Bummy Boys 3, cooked up together with his trusted collaborators, KC and GRGY. At their high energy, high stake gigs—aptly described by Fuego as “WWE shit”—both beats and fists fly high, and we are ready to let off some serious steam…
This Friday, thanks to Jäger Music, Ray is curating a deliciously mischievous night at JACK Amsterdam, with a red-hot lineup worthy of Fuego’s punk firestarter status. The whole of SMIB Squad, Yung Gods, and Bummy Boys, alongside many others, will be there to rage the night away. To give you a little taste of the weekend ahead, GC messaged BB3 trio for a rapid-fire style interview to talk about the best of 2019, their least favourite question (oops) and living life guilt-free.
GC: how are you guys feeling today? where are you? And can you share a self-portrait?
GRGY: Feeling very good! Right now I’m in Nieuwmarkt in Amsterdam
KC: Excited. Amsterdam Noord
GC: what is the last song you listened to? how did it make you feel?
Ray Fuego: Frank Ocean – White Ferrari. It makes me feel free and relaxed
GRGY: Mine – Everything But The Girl. Makes me feel very calm and emotional and happy
KC: A unreleased song of my project called Patta Tracksuit. Excited again!
Ray Fuego: Send it to me
Ray Fuego: Later… ?
GRGY: Sii also to me ?
GC: that is exciting! tell us the tale of Bummy Boys—why and how and when did u get together, and where does the name come from?
Ray Fuego: I hate this question so much

GRGY: ok long story short
GRGY: Ray KC and me all lived within like 2 km from each other
GRGY: and we all made music and then by some miracle we tried to introduce each other to each other (if that makes sense) and the moment we realized that we instantly started making music
GRGY: Add anything if I’m missing something important
Ray Fuego: And the name is actually given to us by our supporters
KC: Yeah we tried to introduce each other to each other but we already knew each other
