Since Mexican hip hop stemmed from the popularity of LA acts its only natural that its sound and images in its early years considerably mirror the gangster rap that was born in Los Angeles. The best is yet to come as Mexican hip hop continues to emerge and deviate away from the LA brand and picks up bits and pieces of regional flavor. For now, scouting the scene for MCs like Boca Floja (check it out below!) resembles having to dig through a room full of crates. But no worries, that process is whats makes discovering/sharing music via HiphoPolitico a good time.
Closing Cinco de Mayo thoughts:
- Cinco de Mayo is not Mexican independence day.
- Cinco de Mayo commemorates Mexican military's victory against a stronger better equipped French army. (May 5, 1862)
- Cinco de Mayo is not widely observed in Mexico.
- Cinco de Mayo partyers should not worry about getting swine flu from drinking coronas.
- Cinco de Mayo wouldn't be complete without Tequila Sunrise.
