Rough Cuts

Growing up my favorite radio station was always Q1047. It was mostly hip hop and RnB and since it was based in the Ventura/ Oxnard area in southern California it had a heavy latin influence. Lots of freestyle and latin rap... Wait haven't I already said all this before? Actually, yeah I did. Go here for a little freestyle/Miami Bass mix I'm pretty proud of and more Q1047 musings. Plug plug. Anyway, one of my favorite latin rappers (not that there were a lot to choose from) was Kid Frost, the creator of this low ridin superjam here...

More recently though I learned that not only was he a early 90's latin kingpin, but he was also a mid 80's electro breakdance rapper and a card carrying member of Uncle Jamm's Army. Here's a couple jams for you pop to but just be careful with your back okay? We're not as young as we used to be.

definitely familiar with "la raza", but never knew he made early 80s jams, let alone that I-F plugged it. sooo rad, big thanks on this.

Nada problema!

Some choice selections there, been after 'Terminator' for what seems like years after hearing it on I-F's mix, so cheers for that!*!
You might want to check out NWA's 'Something 2 Dance 2' which is tacked on the end of the extended version of 'Straight Outta Compton' LP. I know what you might be thinking, but it's nothing like the rest of the album, it's such a funky electro-ish number that won't fail to get you smiling!*! Trust me on that!*!

wasn't ice-t the rapper on these?

seandonson said...

No Ice-T here though they do have some striking similarities. Kid Frost's wikipedia even says he named himelf as an homage to the Ice-man himself.
