About The Buddy Love Project

Most listeners have never heard or seen anything quite like the Buddy Love Project. The California native mixes hip-hop, pop, rock and dance music into a special fusion he calls Future Disco.

The brand new genre was born out Love’s boredom with today’s pop music. Love is by no means a delusional rookie; he has the stripes to take inventory and the skill to change it. Having been signed to Ice Cube as a teenager as part of the group Anotha Level as Bambino and to Ice T as part of The Himalayaz, the self proclaimed “Professional Funster” is fully exercising his alter ego in the form of Buddy Love.

Alter egos aren’t that foreign to music. Shock G has Humpty Hump, T.I. has Tip, Nikki Minaj has about a million of them and now Bambino has Buddy Love

The character began taking shape last year when Love and his full time engineer Junior (who sang on Yung Berg’s breakout his “Sexy Lady”) were recording with Love’s friend Stenge-O (also formerly of Anotha Level). The session produced the first song from the project titled “I Real Eyez.” The song features Love spitting party rhymes with a faux British accent but also sprinkling in a message.

Don’t get it confused, Buddy is all about fun but it’s necessary to throw a curveball every once in awhile. “Everybody is going left so I chose to fake left and go right. I’m tired of music being the same thing over and over again,” says Love.

Love quickly fell in the groove of the project, easily developing the Future Disco sound. He and producer C Ballin (Baby Bash’s “Fantasy Girl” and “Go Girl”) recorded 18 full quality songs in a few weeks. “We were just having fun,” says Love. “Nothing serious just having a good time and trying shit out the box.

The product of the sessions—My Future Disco—will be released this summer. MFD features Love singing, rapping and generally rocking out.

The first single from the project is “Borrow Your Love,” a club driven record about a chick that wants everything from Buddy and he’s so sprung that he gives it all just so he can borrow what she’s got. The record is receiving a great reception in clubs on the West Coast proving that fans are ready for something new. And that something new is the Buddy Love Project.

If you still don’t get what Buddy Love or Future Disco is all about don’t worry just remember Love’s credo: “It’s hard to hate on fun and if it ain’t fun, Buddy ain’t fuckin' with it.”
