He was also a supporting actor in television roles : Southland and Chicago Fire. And even had a cameo in The Big Bang Theory. But Out The Box is a form of raw expression and emotion. Richards poem is powerful and passionate, and it was a great episode to start the Out The Box series.

Out The Box Double Feature

Urban Kings Music Group released a passion project along with Richard Cabral, formerly known as Baby Jokes, called “Out The Box“. It was a spoken word poem, written and performed in monologue by Richard. The performance was powerful, moving and groundbreaking, because this is the first of its kind that I have seen something like this. With so many feelings and emotions, its hard not to have any feelings while the artist is pouring his heart and soul into the viewer, painting a picture in your mind of a flashback of Richards life.

We will continue to release episodes of Out The Box, and we have released two more episodes! A Double feature with two very talented artists, Matthew Perez and Tui Asau. Each episode will not be exactly the same, and each episode will feature an artists journey. Below are Matthew and Tui’s episodes of out the box, with the original artwork of its release!

This episode features Tui Asau, a talented artist from Los Angeles, California. Each Out The Box episode is different, because each artist is different and has different talents.  Tui is a talented music artist and he plays for everyone a unique song that he has written and produced himself.

Richard Cabral In Paranormal Activity : The Marked Ones

Have you heard about the brand  new movie that Richard Cabral will be featured in? It is the first time that a mostly latino cast will be featured in a multi billion dollar movie franchise. Paranormal Activity movies have been scaring fans since 2009, and this movie looks like its going to be the best one of them all. I seen the past Paranormal Activity movies, and they were ok, but I think I am feeling this movie more  because of the storyline of it being an actual movie story. Something like a cross between The Exorcist and The Conjuring. Richard has been doing great in the movies, he was also in A Better LifeEnd Of WatchSnitch, and his most recent movie The Counselor. Thats not counting Richard’s television roles like in Southland, Big Bang Theory, Luck and Chicago Fire. Richard also recorded music with Urban Kings, recording under the name Baby Jokes, and made his solo album “Life On The Streets“, a collaboration album with UKMG Artist Jasper Loco called “Eastside Classics“, as well as many Charlie Row Campo albums. Everyone make sure to check out Paranormal Activity in theaters on January 3rd worldwide!
