Template:Unref Boom Bam was one of the founding members of Comptons Most Wanted and underground rap group N.O.T.R. Bam was born Gene Heisser in 1971 in Compton California. Boom Bam met MC Eiht and Tha Chill while attending Junior High school, and a lifelong friendship developed. In 1987 they created the rap group Comptons Most Wanted and their first album Its a Compton Thang was released in 1989. The group quickly became famous on the West Coast, and international fame soon followed. After the group dissolved in 1993, Boom Bam appeared with MC Eiht on several of his solo projects. Bam, Eiht, and Chill formed N.O.T.R. in 1995. Atlantic Records bought the album and subsequently shelved the entire project. Underground copies of the album are all that survived. [1]

Boom Bam also had a brief movie career with a minor role in the blockbuster hit Menace to Society and in the movie Rhyme and Reasons. He also briefly appeared in the backyard scene of Boys in the Hood.


Boom Bam is currently in the studio working with Hard Head Productions on his first solo album titled Still Wanted. It is scheduled for release some time in early 2010. The album will be featuring such artists as MC Eiht, and MC Ren of N.W.A.[2]

He is currently attending College studying electrical theory.[3]
