Familia Records finally started to release parts of its catalog digitally

Familia Records Chicano Rap

Familia Records is a name that every true Chicano Rap fan knows for the countless classics the record label has released, especially from the mid 90s to the early 2000s. Most the CDs which have been released by Familia Records are really rare these days which makes them expensive collector items on eBay and other stores. One problem has always been that most of the LPs have not been available digitally, hence Chicano Rap fans will like to hear that Familia Records just released a couple of albums from its huge catalog digitally and that more titles are supposed to be available soon. Albums which are already available include titles by artists such as Lil Rob, Mr. Lil One, Mr. Shadow, Brown Intentions and the N'Land Clique.
