no threads on this, and it probably doesn't fit into the afro-latin threads.

waiting for chyno nyno to hit big, he + el santos've been putting out ridic mixtapes for a few years now that haven't really gotten anywhere, but recently he's been on a lot of the usual multi-multi-multi-multi person collabs showing up along side ivy, franco el gorilla, nengo flow, etc etc. he's about to (or just recently released) his el malcriao de las liricas mixtape (under 'chino nyno' instead of 'chyno nyno' which is going to throw things off) which has the best material from the el otro + la pre-tortura mixtapes combined with new cuts while keeping things cohesive. think that with his new-found recognition on the collabs it might push his recognition as a solo artist. new single, a take on i wanna rock right now:

I was happy when I discovered the local hiphop station does a block of chicano rap every week, but I haven't gotten around to listening again.

I like Chyno Nyno on this, but most of you have probably heard it already:

(And I think it's okay to discuss Spanish language hip-hop on the Afro-Latin thread, since I do like to be able to talk about reggaeton there (which is also a stretch in some ways compared to the genres that obviously fit), but it also might make more sense to have a separate thread, because most people aren't going to wade through all the salsa and merengue and "Hey, Aventura is pretty big" if they are interested in discussing hip-hop.)

also there's a pretty wide chunk of spanish-language hiphop that has nothing to do with afro-carribean music

I'm listening to Anita Tijoux, from Chile, right now, and liking her a lot. She did a guest verse on Julieta Venegas's "Eres Para Mi" a couple of years ago, and now her U.S. debut CD, 1977, is coming out in April.

neither good nor bad, just a kid like you (unperson), Saturday, 20 February 2010 14:01 (seven years ago) Permalink

tijoux's also playing new york in april as well on a bill including pacha massive and mad decent's brooklynite maluca.

glad it didn't take long for chile to get mentioned, i've been so into what they're doing for a couple of years now. doesn't seem to get so caught up in beef/bling/swag/etc so much that it sacrifices the creative / fun / four-elements etc side of things.

one of the first big chilean hip-hop groups from the 90's (and according to wikipedia one of the most influential across all of latin america): tiro de gracia

they've been broken up for a while now, but the mc juan "pincel" sativo has still been doing his thing (and carrying the tdg name with him at times), but hasn't really had any good beatmakers behind him, and for a minute seemed to be heading into puffy territory... luckily recently he paired up with [also chilean] producer nick calaveras for their recent single "vete"

calaveras did a few things with ceaese hiperkinetiko, that did a pretty good album "planeta mutante" a year or two back, came off as something not entirely unlike an amateur neptunes at times

organismo soulbeat. didn't put down their release "maceidonea" for a long time. chill smokeworthy type material.

bronko yotte

in the dubstep / bloghouse / etc world this guy 'douster' out of argentina has been getting attention lately, with material out on zzk + mad decent records. the thing that excites me about it is that he apparently has connections with the neighboring chilean scene, already having done dubstep + dancehall remixes of tracks from hip-hop group zonora point, and hopefully he'll be able to bring some light to the other groups around.

zonora point

i'd think the biggest current export is dj raff, already having toured the states a few times.

also: every wednesday there's a hip-hop radio show showbeats out of santiago on university uniacc's station that also gets audio + visually live streamed to the web. at the right of the page there's mp3s of recorded shows.

These were quite popular years ago:

Delinquent Habits - los tres delinquents
Orishas - Represent
Cartel de Santa - La Pelotona

Molotov and Control Machete are quite popular as well.

LA's Akwid were always my faves. Start with Proyecto Akwid, which is the first actual Spanish language stuff they did. "No Hay Manera" was an LA hit I think.

Kind of an interesting video (at least for one viewing) but the music is about as boring as it can be. I do like the Kiss shirt. Sorry, unperson, but with rare exceptions Mala Rodriguez's music is a bore, at least if you can't understand the words.

This one is at least different. Industrial jazz?

yeah the first single for the new mala is pretty eh (the music sounds like a rework of bad romance) but otherwise the album is actually pretty good (although this should probably go under a hip-hop/pop thread)

Yeah, I was listening to some of it yesterday (it's already floating around) and I think I like it more than her last album.

I think the beats are really boring and there's hardly anything going on over top of them. I'm afraid I'm too uninterested to give it another chance and find out if I'm wrong. (I've already deleted this from my PC.)

(although this should probably go under a hip-hop/pop thread)

Hey! We're allowed to go moderately off-topic. I think Spanish-language hip-hop should be allowed on this thread, since I let reggaeton in, although I guess I could have stuck it on your Spanish-language hip-hop thread.

chilean super-producer nick calaveras whom i've already mentioned a few times in this thread finally came out with his lp, la receta. everything i'd hoped, really - smooth production work and great choice of mcs.

mexican female mc nina dioz' el mixtape ii

it's kind of huge, she's got great hip-hop and global bass producers at her back (crookers, el remolon + villa diamante, el hijo de la cumbia); with the patterns of buzz around her i'm expecting tijoux levels of exposure in the english press

NPR Alt-Latino writers love the 2012 Ana Tijoux cd (but mainly for the lyrics). On my one listen I was underwhelmed by the slicker production and the duets. Maybe I will give it another listen or 2.

curmudgeon, Monday, 17 December 2012 17:14 (four years ago) Permalink

It sounds a bit better on 2nd listen, and if I spoke Spanish I'd probably like it even more. Note-Spotify has her first 2 albums under Anita Tijoux and La Bala under Ana Tijoux

curmudgeon, Wednesday, 26 December 2012 15:45 (four years ago) Permalink

eh, she's kind of a default go-to thing to love in spanish hip-hiop at this point. i didn't keep the recent album around but might give it another shot
