12 years after releasing "Love Stories... The Mix Tape" is Cuete Yeska back with volume 5 of his "Love Stories" album series. The exact title is "Love Stories 5... It's Complicated".

If you are interested you can get it from Amazon, Google Play or iTunes now.

Check out our new and exclusive interview with Wicked from Brownside

Wicked Chicano Rap

A day late on the website, but yesterday we released a brand new interview with Chicano Rap legend Wicked from Brownside. For sure he lets us know more about the beginning of his rap career including how he started rapping and how he ended up working with Toker. After that we go on discussing his solo albums as well as all Brownside albums he has been featured on more detailed. I think especially his answer about the "Wicked's Transa" LP is really interesting. Another topic which is getting touched is Brownside's affiliation with Eazy-E and Ruthless Records. After talking about the concert he did under the name Arsenal we finally start to talk about the present including the reason that made him come back to the Chicano Rap game and what we can expect from him in the future.

Welcome home Conejo

Conejo Chicano Rap

On Wednesday I received the news that Conejo is going to be released from prison after being locked up for over a year on midnight the same day. Since then there have been various posts on Instagram by people in close contact with him, such as Ernie G, confirming his release. So far no new pictures or videos of Conejo have hit the internet but we are sure it's just a question of time before we hear some official words from the Chicano Rap legend. After being on the run and after being locked, a period which stretched for more then a deacade, it will be interesting to see where he can take his career since he will finally be able to do shows, do livestreams and all the other social media stuff. For sure we will try to bring you an interview with the man himself as soon as possible. For now, welcome home Conejo!
