about

This is a rap song about the best burgers in the universe (Bravas), a song about the power of someone daring to dream and having a dedicated team to bring it to fruition, a song about my adopted home city and the power which rests within reach of so many more than folk realize. I'm proud of Bo and his team. Fort Wayne is lucky to have them.

This is my way of saying thank you.

A huge thank you goes to all generous and talented parties who made this happen-Agent Orange for the beat and mixdown/mastering, Nate Utesch for studio time, Shawn Malinowski for access to the original graphics, Mark Lahey for making the final design, and Bambi Guthrie for being down to surprise a great friend with sneakily acquired footage.

lyrics

Welcome to a story of gustatory delight
Sharing the glory of bites, see the more we invite
The more are astonished, can’t believe the culinary wizardry
Luxury, your tongue is in a limousine
The jumbo jet of flavor got itself an airport
46807 is the territor
E preparing for splendor from the brain of Zach
Promo shot, one bite, now fade to black
But bring it back because I want to take another bite
And another 'nother 'nother on another night
It’s not a burger, it’s a stairway to heaven food
I’ve got the Heimlich on deck when I spread the news
Word of mouth is kind of risky with a mouthful
You heard about something better? Doubtful
While you’re keeping Guy Fieri’s colorist in business
I’m breaking Bravas burgers, getting big for my britches


It goes 1 bite, 2 bite, 3 bite, 4
Started with a hot dog cart, then a food truck
5 bites, 6 bites, 7 bites, more
Now with a Burger joint, clearly on the move up
8, 9, 10, 11, 12, and 13
Meat is cured then it’s ground up fresh
Bo and company are going to show you what work means
It’s the B to the R-A-V-A-S


Broadcasting live from Planet Flavortron
Behind a Justin Lim sign where the tables spawn
The opposite of tongue depressors
Uplifting taste buds with the funky freshest treasure under pressure
I dream of burgers getting chased by a milkshake
Plus Agent Orange went and blessed me with this ill break
Bet your bottom dollar, top, plus the in between
Heard the recipes are painted on the Sistene
PB burger, New Baconings, el Duderino
The Triple B with its runny yolk, the root of evil
Bravas burger, plus they’ve even got a vegan option
Add the classic for the win, I need a feeding often
No diggity D’Angelo, no doubt
Bravas flavor is the greatest around
A dream never breathes if no one starts
I heard they’ll have space shuttles selling pho on Mars


It goes 1 bite, 2 bite, 3 bites, 4
Started with a hot dog cart, then a food truck
5 bites, 6 bites, 7 bites, more
Now with a Burger joint, clearly on the move up
8, 9, 10, 11, 12, and 13
Meat is cured then it’s ground up fresh
Bo and company are going to show you what work means
It’s the B to the R-A-V-A-S


If you’re considering a Pudding Pop, put it off
Get yourself a a bit of Bravas till it’s good and gone
But there’s plenty more, they’ve got a walk in cooler now
Cause when it comes to flavor, Bravas doesn’t fool around
A penny for your tho​​ughts, 25 for Burgertime
Arcade gaming with art and they made it
Rowland on the walls, burger spaceman Jason
The taste, you can’t fake it, it’s basically Fantasia
…and this is one of the many reasons that I love this city
People in Fort Wayne doing great things in Fort Wayne
Take a look around, look what’s cooking now
Bo and the Bravados, right next to WunderKammer
3412 Fairfield
My name is Sankofa.
Enjoy your meal.


It goes 1 bite, 2 bite, 3 bites, 4
