Latino Hip-Hop Pioneers - Feb. 2nd, 2010




It may be dubious for some to believe that Latinos have been part of Hip-Hop since its inception. Although, it may seem like Fat Joe and Big Pun helped Latinos kick the doors down, there were some cats before them who had already cracked the door open.
Among them were DJ Disco Wiz, noted as Hip-Hop’s first Latino DJ, and Jorge “Popmaster Fabel” Pabon, member of the famed Rock Steady Crew who along with Joe Conzo, photographer and author of Born in the Bronx: A Visual Record of the Early Days of Hip Hopwill be hosting a discussion panel on the history and plights of Latinos in Hip-Hop.
The event which will be held at The Museum of the City of New York Tuesday, Feb. 2nd, will be moderated by former Source Magazine editor, Carlito Rodriguez, author of Vamos a Rapiar: Latinos and Hip-Hop Music. - written by Emmanuel Ureña, orginally posted on Vibe.com

What Does the iPad do for Latino Hip-Hop?

I predict that the much awaited iPad will do wonders for independent musician's.
Currently on the iPhone you have the ability to record and produce beats.
Personally, I've never taken these applications to seriously because they lacked the memory to be able to deliver the quality I wanted.
I think that the iPad changes all that.
The 1st generation iPad will give you up to 64GB.
The 2nd or 3rd generation will certainly surpass 100GB.
Therefore prepare to be able to produce, record and promote anywhere at anytime!

Exclusive Interview with "Cruz DurrtyJada" of "Guerilla War Tactix"



If there is one principle, habit or lesson that you can share with a young up and coming artist, what would it be?

Trust nobody. The deeper you get into this, the more you will understand that you will always have to deal with snakes. There is a lot of bullshit out there, so before you decide to put your soul into the music game you gotta figure out who you are, why you are doing this and keep a steady focus. Cause they will come after you and try to poison you. Go raw out. 


Where do you see the music industry 5 years from now? 

In 5 years from now - I believe the music industry will end up being more raped than what it is today.
People seem to forget about legends such as John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, even Michael Jackson etc who came and revolutionized the entire industry and reached out to people and changed their lives forever. But at the same time, it all depends on who you are and how you visualize it. Guerilla War Tactix is more than just a couple of underground Hip-Hop heads - we fight in this struggle using verbal guerilla tactics to damage the unholy system that is constantly watching us all the time. So judging from my book I also believe that the underworld Hip-Hop kingdom will be a much doper place with artists like Bloodline, Human Genocide Process, Lord Lhus, Psych Ward, Grindhouse Gang and Guerilla War Tactix. On the behalf of warriors like that i would put it to you like this: wherever the world is at in 5 years from now, thats where we will be at to dominate the rest of it and keep our message shining like a blood diamond.






How do you go about recording, promoting and releasing your music?

Its all independent. Since we all live in such a far distance from each other we constantly have to spit our verses at different locations. At the end of the day everything ends up at the mothership, where we put down the final touches. We promote our message via myspace, facebook, radio interviews, magazines, youtube, connections, it doesn't really matter what it is, as long as it gives us the opportunity to tell the world about our legacy. 

What are you currently working on?

Right now i'm working on a couple of tracks together with Human Genocide Process, its a grimey horrorcore underground Hip-Hop group created by members of Bloodline.  I'm just trying to build with dope musicians and make psychotic grimecore music. Guerilla War Tactix first LP "The Invasion" is out right now so make sure to cop the masterpiece and support us.  The message is to invade the modern day Hip-Hop industry and take it back to the roots, the culture & the underground. It's the ultimate bankrobbing music. I'm also working on the followup project to "The Invasion" called "The Occupation" we are trying to build a circle and end it off by "The Domination" 

What is the best place for people to find out more about Cruz DurrtyJada?

Find out more about me and my team at www.myspace.com/GuerillaWarTactix, if people wanna get in touch with me just hit us up on there, whether its collabo prices or just trying to link up with me.

Bomba Estereo - Psychedelic Cumbia Hip-Hop from Colombia







Nacional Records recording artist's Bomba Estereo have created a unique and hypnotic sound fusing music from their native Colombia with Hip-Hop.


The group is a musical project formed by Simón Mejía and singer Liliana Saumet. Their music merges Colombian folk sounds like cumbia, bullerengue and champeta mixed with electronica, reggae and Hip-Hop which all comes together to produce an explosive dance sound. 



Bomba Estéreo is a funky underground talent revealing a genre-busting, linguistics-defying release with ‘Blow Up’... Lead vocalist Liliana Saumet’s sultry style is a hybridization of Nelly Furtado with the precision and attitude of M.I.A.
URB


Bomba Estereo’s Liliana Saumet has a forceful, full-throated attack; she can rap with rhythmic ingenuity, nonchalantly juggling American hip-hop, reggaeton, and dancehall, but she can also sing passionately, nailing melodies with impressive pitch control and emotional snap.”
CHICAGO READER

Bomba Estereo... is turning plenty of heads with its song "Fuego," the exhilarating lead single from its debut album... playfully referring to both Colombia's burgeoning dance culture and traditional attire in the same breath.”

Exclusive Interview with "Scarred IV Life"


LatinoHiphop.Org:

If there is one principle, habit or lesson that you can share with a young up and coming artist, what would it be?

Scarred IV Life:

I still consider myself an up-and-coming Artist so I'm learning as I go.  What I've done (and others can look over my shoulder for their own example) is, do your homework!  Learn about the Biz and find out who you are as an Artist.  That may sound silly but, until you share your music to get some raw and constructive criticism, you have nothing to gauge yourself on.  Do open mic's or put your self in shows outside your circle or City.  Your friends and family are going to think you're good but, try getting some love from folks who don't even know you.  And take time to record yourself.  A lot of Cats don't think about that.  You might be surprised at how different you sound when you play back your music.  That's something that will be captured in time forever...how's your delivery?  Are you just recording or putting out quality material?  There's a difference between just rhymin' and putting it on CD to sell or hand out. 

LatinoHiphop.Org:

Where do you see the music industry 5 years from now?

Scarred IV Life:

Well, the best way to answer that is to look back 5 years (ago) and see where it is now.  That's how fast the industry and art is moving.  So, I think it'll keep evolving and Artist's will keep pushing the line, making the Industry adjust to us.  But, I think this IS the best time for all Independent Artists.  There's more resources for us now, than there ever has been.  If you look back at the RUN DMC days, or even when NWA was bangin'....there weren't too many Artists out.  That might be a good thing, cuzz only quality Emcees were on the mic.  I consider all music that came out at that time, good.  Skilled Emcees were keeping the game elevated.  Only Producers who had studied and learned the trade were producing records.  These days, EVERYONE has equipment and considers themselves an Emcee or Producer.  From top notch music to the wackest, everyone's getting exposure and you don't need mainstream radio these days to get noticed.  The point I'm trying to make is, you're gonna hear music from anyone and everyone, from all over the Country (and the world).  Decide (for yourself) what's actually music and what's HIP HOP. 

LatinoHiphop.Org:

How do you go about recording, promoting and releasing your music?

Scarred IV Life:

First, the rhymes and beats have to be on point.  If not, why waste anyone's time (especially mine), pushing something that's not there yet.  It doesn't take an A&R or Producer to recognize what quality music sounds like.  Either something's hitting or it's not.  I usually perform a song at my shows to get some feedback before I invest more time and energy in it.  But, I'm usually comfortable with my end results.  So when I mix down my music, I email mp3's to folks on my email list and ask for their feedback (HINT: visit my website and join my mailing list).  I think the hardest part for me, as an Emcee and Producer is, which order to put the songs on an Album.  As silly as it sounds, the order can make an Album good or average.  Think about it, the order of songs is gonna be the first thing someone remembers about a CD and how often they go back to listen to it again.



LatinoHiphop.Org:

What are you currently working on?

Scarred IV Life:

A lot and I wish I had more time to get it all done.  Music is almost my career but until that happens, bills got to get paid!  But, I keep myself busy with several projects of my own and a few that I'm working on with other Producers and Emcees.  This includes local Cats, to the Bay Area, Arizona, Houston, Brooklyn and even Chile (South America).  Underground heads are reaching out to me and that lets me know I've got a style that people are feelin'.  That helps me grow too as an Artist, getting different vibes from other Producers or Emcees.

LatinoHiphop.Org:

What is the best place for people to find out more about Scarred IV Life?

Scarred IV Life:

 ScarredIVLife.com and LatinoHiphop.org! Along with all the other network sites.  But, you'll find those on my page anyway.  On the real, visit my page(s) and let me know where you're at!  I wanna schedule shows all over and I need to know where the real Hip Hop heads are.  And I can't emphasize enough, check out my shows.  I got bangin' tracks you won't hear any where else, the rhymes are to the good and the vibe is right.  We keep it 100!  Plus, anyone showin' love, I'll return the favor and throw out CD's, stickers - even shirts or beanies!

10 Things to Think About in 2010

1. Music is free.

2. The album is dead.

3. Your live show is where the money is.

4. Music streaming is the future.

5. iPhone and other apps are how music streaming will be consumed.

6. Social networking is a great way to connect with people, but pick one and be king of it.

7. Your email list is still king. Respect it.

8. Hardwork and honest connections with people are the secret to success.

9. Don't quit your day job until your music is making you enough money to live off of on it's own.

10. Think local.

Wishing you continued success!
