Lil Sicko released "Savage Life" without any promotion

Lil Sicko - Savage Life Chicano Rap

One of Chicano Rap's "problems" is the lack of promotion certain releases receive and Lil Sicko's "Savage Life" is a good example for that.

The LP features artists such as Fern, Python, Young Travm Uno 420, Mak, Confidence, Sinek, Lil Blacky and Dat Boi T. The album which consists of 10 songs can be be bought from Amazon, Google Play or iTunes. When I stumbled across "Savage Life" I saw that he also released another record called "Stakin A Grip" but we'll get into detail about this the next days...

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.
