Atlanta based group Collective Efforts is the brainchild of Ben Hameen, J. Mil, Bambu and DJ Creashun. With a refreshing sound and an uplifting message, the goal is to spread that message through hip hop, to the people that need it the most. When Ben Hameen and J. Mil started working together in early 2002, an instant chemistry developed. Realizing that their goals were one and the same, the duo started collaborating regularly, and began work on solo projects. Bambu the Asiatic fell right into place with his positive raps and powerful, distinct voice.
