Latin Hip-Hop Megamix
by Rachel Devitt | August 20, 2012
Latino artists, Latin music and Spanish lyrics have, of course, been an integral (if, unfortunately, often overlooked) piece of the hip-hop puzzle since the genre's origin. So dividing Latin hip-hop into its own separate category can feel superfluous. And yet, emcees and producers from across the Latin music world have developed a host of unique, distinctive subgenres that fill out the Latin hip-hop umbrella. We crammed as much of 'em as we could into this megamix, which focuses on Spanish-language (or at least Spanglish) rap from artists who make their home in everything from reggaeton to urban regional, from West Coast OG's like Mellow Man Ace and Kid Frost to enterprising new guarders like Ritmo Machine and Ana Tijoux.
