Born and raised in downtown Toronto and member of numerous musical collectives, The Legend Adam Bomb has been taking Canadian Hip Hop to another level for decades. As a soloist or part of a group, his timeless music and continued success is a result of countless hours devoted to his craft.
Growing up surrounded by house parties and mixtapes, Adam initially got involved in the scene through freestyling and battling. His quick wit and original style helped spread his name and reputation until he joined forces with a collective that would later sell over 60,000 units independently. Adam Bomb, along with his original team - the Empire, released “The Table of Nonsense”, “Get it” and the classic mixtape series “S.A.R.S (Sick Artists Runnin’ Sh*t) to let the country know that the combination of practice, determination, and a genuine love for good music, leads to a product to be proud of.
A veteran in performing live, Adam brings energy to the stage like no other. With well over 200 shows in his hometown and more throughout the country, his presence on the mic has allowed him to open up for such acts as: Mobb Deep, Masta Ace, Kardinal Offishall, Classified and dozens more. He gained the confidence to move crowds after years of open mic visits and winning several competitions. Although he has retired from the battle scene, he continues to sharpen his skills in case the opportunity arises again.
Being a multi-talented entertainer, Adam co-hosted a radio show called “The Guilty Party” on Project Bounce 89.5 which was one of the most successful shows on late night college radio. While discussing relevant topics. the team consistently entertained with special guests, the latest music, and their own brand of humor. Listeners would tune in religiously just to hear what would happen next on the show.
As one of the hip hop scene’s most familiar faces, Adam has been recognized not only by his peers and growing fan base but also by the media. Besides being a guest on various Toronto radio stations like 93.5, 105.5 and 88.1, he was interviewed for Pound Magazine, BPM TV’s “Urban Grooves” as well as hiphopcanada.com and undergroundhiphop.com. After a great review in The Toronto Star, Adam was given a short documentary on CBC’s “The Nerve”, graced the cover of NOW Magazine, and was listed at #15 of CBC’s Top 25 Greatest Canadian Rappers Ever. His music has since been featured by Complex, Vice, 2DopeBoyz, Fader and many other popular music sites.
Adam's legacy is his catalog of music and to help with that mission, he joined two powerhouse movements; the Freedom Writers and Naturally Born Strangers. The albums by both groups were followed by critical acclaim and sold-out release parties with heavily-rotated videos on MuchMusic. NBS went on to win a Juno award for Best Rap Recording, an Indie award by SIRIUS for Best Rap Group and received multiple MMVA nominations for their videos.
His music is a great reflection of himself yet it's not difficult for others to relate to the many sides he shows on record. At first, known strictly for his vicious verses and captivating delivery, Adam Bomb has developed a need to display his personal life through concepts and storytelling and can take a listener of any age and demographic on a lyrical journey before getting back to what he is known to do:
