R.I.P Big Stomps

Stomper Chicano Rap

I know I'm late but I still wanted to inform you that Stomper, member of the infamous group Soldier Ink, passed away April, 2nd. Just a couple of weeks prior he posted a photo of himself being in the hospital due to a blood disease. My deepest condolences go to his family and friends! I was lucky enough to meet him in person at Lowrider Magazine ca show in Las Vegas back in 2006. His contribution to the game called Chicano Rap is massive and will live forever. His discography includes 2 Solder Ink albums, collaboration LPs with Spanky Loco and Conejo, various mixtapes and solo projects as well as a gang of compilations. He also started selling clothing through his official website Orders are still being processed so if you want to support you can still do so. On the website you'll also find some of his latest music. A gofundme to support the family can be reached by clicking here. R.I.P to Lonnie "Stomper" Mendoza!

O.G Kid Frost finally released classic mixtapes to the digital world

Frost Chicano Rap

If I remember correctly it was between 2011 to 2013 when the godfather of Chicano Rap, O.G Kid Frost, released 3 classic albums/ mixtapes called "All Oldies", "All Oldies 2" and "Old School Funk". These days the hard copies are harder and harder to get and if you are lucky to find one, you may have to pay one of the insane prices some Chicano Rap releases are going for these days. Back in 2014 Frost and Big Tank released a video for their song "Backstabaz" which is taken from "All Oldies 2" and which can been seen by clicking here. The good news is that all 3 titles were released to digital stores earlier this year, so if you haven't been able to pick up any of the CDs you can now just move over to the known dealers such as Amazon, iTunes or Tidal.

Introducing Echo Park artist Jo-Ski

Jo-Ski Chicano Rap

About 2 years ago I first heard about Echo Park based artist Jo-Ski who has released 2 albums so far. His 1st album "Tha Struggle" was released in 2005 and followed by his sophomore LP "Brown Phobia" in 2006. It took me some time to locate at least "Tha Struggle" on eBay but wasn't able to find "Brown Phobia" for a reasonable price. Thanks to his daughter I linked up with him on Instagram and asked him if he still sells copies of his albums. Luckily he still does, and so I was able to finally get my physical copy of the missing record. If you are interested in buying his music get at him by clicking here. He also told me that he has been featured on the Proper Dos song "Fifty Pour". Due to legal issues he went with the name Loco Joe.
