SL Entertainment finally released the long awaited movie "A Southland Tale"

A Southland Tale Chicano Rap

SL Entertainment aka Southland Records is known to be one of the innovators in this Chicano Rap game. They were one of the first Chicano Rap labels, if not the first label to release an all oldies album ("Chicano Rap Oldies"). They were one of the first Chicano Rap labels, if not the first label to release a DVD ("Southland Most Wanted"). They were one of the first Chicano Rap labels, if not the first label to release a DVD/CD package consisting of music videos for every song of the soundrack ("The Games Begun"). People who know Mister D are aware that we wanted to shoot a movie since the mid 2000s. Now he has finally been able to make this project come true with the release of "A Southland Tale". Besides the Southland Gangsters the movie includes appearaneces by a gang of other people out of the Chicano Rap industry such as Kid Frost, Cuete Yeska, Richard the owner of Norwalk Records as well as East Side Records, Conejo and many more. In addition to the movie SL Entertainment also released a soundtrack which consists of more than 30 songs. For now the DVD as well as the CD can be bought from SL Entertainment over at their official eBay page by clicking here. Get your copies while they last, I'm sure this is going to be a collectors item soon.

Conejo went rock with "Planet Exile" EP

Conejo - Planet Exile Chicano Rap

Already a couple of weeks ago did Conejo release an EP called "Planet Exile". The interesting part about the EP is that it features Conejo rapping over rock music. If you ask me it's a really dope release which brings you a banging sound and definitely seperates itself from the "regular" Chicano Rap albums. The only bad thing to say about it is that it's an EP and hence only consists of 5 songs. As usual you can get it from Amazon, Google Play or iTunes. When it comes to Conejo doing rock music he was also featured on a song by C.F.T.C called "Body Bag". The video for the song can be seen by clicking here.
