Since technically its imitating Westcoast "chicano" rap- I'd say its what that sounds like. Outside of New York, Latin hip hop is just all around bad anyway.

In any case. This has been a pointless thread of trolling.

No not really. There are plenty of good Latin artist that came out of the west coast. Cypess hill, mellow man ace, kid frost, funkdoobiest etc etc. I agree thoug a lot of cholo/chicano rap sounds terrible. There is a lot more than that on the west coast though.

Not at all latin rappers from NY are good at least not anymore. Takeshi 69 or what ever his name is straight ass and hes from Brooklyn.

Cypress Hill are Cuban. I'll give them all the credit in the world, but keeping it trill. Chicano/cholo rap is atrociously bad.

This thread should be locked. Utterly pointless discussion.

Check out one of his poems.
References to local places:

"Burque" = Albuquerque
"San Jo" = San Jose, one of the barrios in the South Valley located on Broadway street
"Tingly Beach" = a city park in Albuquerque

Slang and words you might not be familiar with:
"bronca" = pelea
"ranfla" = carro
"vato" = hombre
"pinta" = la carcel
"pedo" = "situacion problematica" (can also mean to be drunk, ie "andar bien pedo")
"la Raza" = you all know what that means


Also "dando esquina", maybe you don't know what that means, it means "to have your back". This is a typical thing to say in the barrio, your friends in the neighborhood will tell you "te damos esquina" meaning that if other guys cause you trouble, you get jumped, your friends will be there for you.

Hey I was watching news yesterday on the El Paso shooting and came across this interview, which reminded me of our discussion here about accents. This guy is a perfect example of someone who doesn't know how to speak Spanish but the few words he knows, he pronounces them correctly because he obviously grew up in a dominantly Mexican/Hispanic environment. So he acquired the appropriate accent. Moreso, he speaks English with the typical Chicano accent that you hear throughout the Southwest.

I donīt even hear correct pronunciation though..thatīs broken Spanglish with all kinds of gender and conjugation errors, etc. Even Beto speaks better than that

When I move back Iīm going to try hard not to assume anyoneīs language skills or preference on visual appearance, because in the 21st Century with all the diverse backgrounds we have, thatīs unfair to do...though still very common.

This very topic can be distressing for Hispanics who donīt have a good command of Spanish. They often get made fun of by their own friends and relatives. Thereīs even a movement in public schools seeking to address this issue...the courses are called Heritage Spanish and they try to focus on the types of errors that this guy was making, as well as teaching literature, poetry, history and music of Latin America. Itīs got my attention as an interesting field to pursue.

He is pronouncing words/syllables correctly. Ignore the grammar and the verbs he doens't know how to conjugate. Listen to the words he does know - for example "ahorita" and "balazo". He pronounces them perfectly.

I personally feel that their grandparents/parents should have brought them up in Spanish. Being bilingual is a great thing. It opens up a lot of doors. You can go to any Spanish speaking country (of which there are a lot), and get along just fine. In the neighborhood I grew up in, about half the people were fluent and the other half weren't. For those that weren't, i think they just figured "they're living in the U.S. so why bother."
