Sheck Wes’ breakthrough single “Mo Bamba” has changed his life. Fittingly, the Cactus Jack and G.O.O.D. Music signee gets an assist from the song’s namesake, Orlando Magic center Mohamed Bamba, for his debut Mudboy.
Bamba sports a shirt featuring the project’s title and October 5 release date in a Twitter announcement.
“Mixed Mastered and Executively Produced By Sheck Wes,” Sheck adds.

The actual Mohamad Bamba being involved is a natural fit since Sheck is a childhood friend.
“I’m honestly just proud of this dude,” the former Texas Longhorn recently told HipHopDX. “He has his handprint all over the game and in entertainment. And that’s what makes him special.”
Sheck’s “Mo Bamba” has been a digital juggernaut, racking up close to 16 million streams on SoundCloud and well over 19 million views on YouTube. The song’s success (peaked at No. 31 on the Billboard Hot 100), not to mention the backing of Travis Scott and Kanye West, has built a lot of hype for the upcoming release of Mudboy.
