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.

Ms Krazie’s Mural

Click Here To Watch – Art In The Making

Have you seen the Urban Kings x Sand One collaboration mural up close and personal? If you cant see the mural in person, we have the next best thing. We have filmed a short documentary called “Art In The Making“. It gives an inside look into the life of Sand One’s art, and see why art critics rate her as the number one female artist you should know in Los Angeles. So it made perfect sense to collaborate Urban Kings and the queen of our label, Ms Krazie, with the queen of art in Sand One. Sand has collaborated with huge companies for her artwork, including The NBA, Levi’s, Redbull, Kayo, DGK, Univision, Nike and more. Now collaborating with Urban Kings on this mural and the creation of the “Art In The Making” video, will show you creating her masterpiece, and tell you her story herself.

We Caught Bruno Mars In East LA

Do you remember this? I remember going into the Urban Kings Music Group offices, the day before the release of the music video of “Grenade” video, which launched Bruno Mars into a worldwide superstar, and knowing that two of our artists were featured in the video. It was a big deal, because we were able to hear the song before the release of the video, and heard the potential of how big the song would be. UKMG Artists Midget Loco and Richard Cabral (aka Baby Jokes), were featured in the video, along with Oso Vicious. This video did exactly what was expected, but reached even further than we thought. Played on thousands of radio stations around the country, as well as music television stations like MTV, BET, FUSE, VH1 and more. Grenade hit over 340,000,000 views on youtube, and Bruno Mars was this years Super Bowl Halftime Show Artist. Make sure to watch the video and support everyone involved, including us at Urban Kings!
