"Afri-Culture Spotlight: Atlanta Rapper Bags Talks Growing Up In A Religious Household, His Love For Music & Being Eritrean-American"

Born in the United States to Eritrean parents, Bags is an Atlanta-based rapper, singer, songwriter and producer. As the son of a preacher, he spent a lot of time in church listening to sermons and occasionally singing in the choir.

At the age of 14, Bags discovered his passion for arts and began writing poems, novels and rhymes. During his teenage years, he dealt with temptations that were contrary to his strict religious upbringing and as he grew older he began to rebel against the life prescribed to him by his parents. Disheartened but not deterred, he turned to music as a creative outlet to channel his personal frustration.

Bags has shared stages with Young Dro, Nipsey Hussle and Trinidad James, as well as performed multiple times at the annual music and interactive festival SXSW in Austin, TX, which gave him the critical respect he wanted and deserved. Currently signed to DDB Entertainment, the street-savvy African rapper with American finesse is gearing up for another major release with the single “Geeker” leading the way. The track is perfect example of his unique flow and personality; a mid-tempo bass-heavy beat with Bags riding the rhythm with equal parts bravado, humor and innovative lyrics.

Afri-Culture caught up with Bags for a quick interview. Here is what he had to say:

How do you describe your music?

I would describe my music as fun but serious, conscious but catchy. I try to motivate and most importantly I try to always have an underlying message in it that people can relate to and grab something from.

Who is your biggest musical inspiration and why?

Tough question but if I had to choose one I’d say Eminem. Not only is he a dope writer and lyricist, but I can also relate to his struggle of not being believed in as an artist and taking that pain and pouring it into the music. I also like how he was the underdog but went on to become one of the greatest MCs in the game.

You grew up in a very strict and religious household. How did your parents react when you told them you wanted to become a rapper?

Not well at all and the interesting thing about that is that I understood where they were coming from, but I had to follow my calling. My parents risked everything, including all of our lives to leave Eritrea when our country was at war with Ethiopia. So they felt like me choosing rapping as a career was disrespectful to their sacrifices, in addition to our religion. I grew up in church, literally. If I wasn’t in school, I was in church and being that secular music was banned in our house, I think they were just disappointed with my decision. But they’re slowly coming around to accepting it, not so much what I’m rapping about, but they see how passionate I am. I think they thought it was just a phase and I’d grow out of it, but it’s been a minute now so they realize I’m serious.

“I’ve done open mics, showcases, talent shows and won everything. There’s not a contest or competition in the city that I haven’t performed at and killed.” – Bags
In Atlanta, there are many people trying to break into the music/entertainment industry. What makes your music stand out?

I think what makes me stand out is my story. It seems like everybody wants to tell the same story but it’s your personal testimony that makes you different. Just like no 2 fingerprints are alike, no 2 people share the exact same story but we all share basic human emotions. I take what I’ve seen, experienced and learned and put it together so anybody can relate to those commonalities we all go through. And that’s what makes me different.

If you could collaborate with any musician (dead or alive), who would it be and why?

I’d say Bob Marley. I listened to him growing up a little bit, sneaking to hear something my older sister was listening to. He was a liver of life, carefree, was passionate about what he did and respected the art form of music. You could see and hear how much he loved creating songs and with him being from another country but connecting so many people to his homeland through his music inspires me to do the same.

You said, “Music is all I do. I put so much into every aspect of my career that if I’m not doing music I feel like something is wrong.” But if you could choose any other career to pursue other than music, what would it be?

I honestly don’t see myself doing anything else, but if I had to choose another career, it’d probably be a comedian. I love when people love my songs but when I can make somebody cry laughing the feeling is unexplainable in my circle I’m the ‘fool.’

Being born and raised in the United States, how do you stay connected to your Eritrean roots?

My family and my community. Being that I’m the first generation raised in the US, my family keeps us very entrenched in the traditions back home. Also with my father starting the first Eritrean church in Atlanta, I grew up around other kids and families from Eritrea so it was only when I went to school that I felt removed from my roots.

Bags is back with his follow up to “Dis Dat Whip” and he’s got the streets with this one! Watch Bags’ latest visual “Got Em” below! -



The first American-born Eritrean in his family, which included 6 older siblings, Kibrom Endirias has always been different.  The elder Endirias moved the household from their war-torn East African country to Indiana before finally settling in the Atlanta suburb of Decatur, GA when Kibrom was a month old to start a ministry.  As the son of a preacher, Kibrom grew up in a deeply spiritual family and spent a lot of time in church listening to sermons and occasionally singing in the choir.  . 

At the age of 14, he began penning novels, poems and raps while in high school adopting the moniker Money Bags for the cash he received from classmates that paid for his rhymes.  During his teenage years, Kibrom dealt with temptations that were contrary to his strict religious upbringing and as he grew older he began to rebel against the life prescribed to him by his parents.  A line was drawn.  Money Bags was unwilling to abandon his musical ambitions, while his family refused to compromise their religious roots.  The path they had charted for their son did not include a career in the entertainment business, which caused another kind of war.  

Disheartened but not deterred, Money Bags morphed into just Bags and turned to music as a creative outlet to channel his personal frustration. Bags has shared stages with Young Dro, Nipsey Hussle and Trinidad James,Scotty Atl,TWO-9 as well as performed at the annual music and interactive festival such as A3C in Atlanta, Ga where he shared stage with  various international artists  on the Global Hip Hop Showcase stage and SXSW in Austin, TX, which gave him the critical respect he wanted and deserved 

Bags introduced his brash southern dialect on a pair of projects he dropped with little fanfare to hone his mixtape circuit skills in 2013 he released  Bags Fly Free on Dat Piff hosted by Hoodrich DJ Pretty Boy Tank. in 2014, he release " Geeker The Ep" on Dat Piff. in 2015, he release " Geeker the Extendo " hosted by Coalitions, Hoodrich DJ Black BillGates. Secure with where he is as a man and an artist, the East African rapper from East Atlanta, GA is committed to spreading his brand of hip-hop gospel all over the world.
