History Of Chicano Rap With Kid Frost

We just heard that Kid Frost has announced to the world he has cancer. The Urban Kings Staff is all hoping Kid Frost pulls through and has a speedy recovery. I remember when we featured Kid Frost in our History Of Chicano Rap segment, where we had the pioneers of music talk about their start and the influence they had on a culture. Everyone knows and heard his song La Raza, and how it crossed over into mainstream music. In this episode, Kid Frost talks about how he started rapping and how the music scene was, with the beginnings of Kid Frost, NWA and more. A very dope story told by the man himself.

R.I.P KDay – Again

Today we lost one of our favorites. The World Famous Radio Station KDAY has just been purchased by a Chinese on air format. Magic Broadcasting, which owned KDay and KDEY-FM (Ontario/Riverside) sold the station to RBC Communications in an agreement worth over $20 MILLION. Once the deal becomes official, the Mandarin Language Radio station could take over the airwaves in a few months. KDay became world famous by being the first hip hop/rap station, playing music by N.W.A, and Eazy E, as well as R & B and 80s Disco/Hi NRG. In 1991, KDay was sold to Fred Sands, who turned KDay into a business-oriantated radio station.

KDay returned to the airwaves in 2004. When KDay started again, it played continuous, with no commercials and no radio personalities. Once word began to spread that KDay was back, the station wasted no time in hiring some  influential djs like Julio G, The Baka Boys and Yoyo. From 2007 to 2009, KDay has been inconsistent with its “Hip Hop Today and Back In The Day” slogan being changed many times throughout a short two year period. Although playing more R & B and contemporary music, KDay was still a station that was playing old school hip hop, and continued that format from 2010 through the sale of 2013. Unfortunately, it was a little too late, as ratings began to slip beyond repair. KDay, we will wait again until you can return and hopefully be represented the correct way!

RIP Eazy E – The Hip Hop Thugsta

UKMG would like to dedicate this blog for Eazy E, celebrating his life and his legacy for what he has done for music, especially hip hop. Eazy was one of the first artists that became not only an entertainer, but a CEO as well. From organizing the supergroup NWA, to working as a solo artist, then creating his own record label, called Ruthless Records. Eazy always had an eye for finding talent, including JJ Fad, The DOC, Bone Thugs and Harmony. But what Eazy E also has done, that has not really been made common knowledge that Eazy E also believed in young Mexican artists. He also signed Brownside and Kid Frost, and was also negotiating with other Mexican artists on deals. Not too many major mainstream artists have co signed Mexican artists, and that is why is so respected among the latino communities. Rest In Peace Eazy E!

Jasper Loco & Kid Frost

We got a picture in from UKMG Artist Jasper Loco at the Eazy E Tribute event this past weekend in Downey, California. Mexicans always show love to Eazy E not as the godfather of gangster rap, but because he gave Mexicans a chance in hip hop. Many people dont know, but Eazy E signed Brownside, Kid Frost, and was signing Hollow Point (Knightowl and Lil One). Kid Frost released “Smile Now Die Later” through Ruthless Records, and had the classics “Eastside Rendezvous”, “La Familia”, “You Aint Right” just to name a few. Jasper went to the show to show love and represent Charlie Row Campo and took this dope picture right in front of Frost, while he was performing.

Ms Krazie In the LA TIMES

Here is the exact article that The Los Angeles Times wrote about Pops aka Wan Joon Kim, who runs the Cycadelic Record Shop in the World Famous Compton Indoor Swapmeet.

Then he talks about the shift in Compton from black artists to mexican artists, and even mentions Urban Kings Music Group artist Ms Krazie and Lil G! Right now hip hop is back on the rise with really dope talent. READ THE ARTICLE ABOVE!!!
