“Oakland bred Panamanian-American bilingual rappers Los Rakas have built a fanbase in the most unlikeliest places; a classroom. An enterprising Spanish teacher used Los Rakas’ music to help her class improve on pronunciation and music appreciation. Cousins El Negrito Dun Dun Raka Ricardo have been spreading Raka Love with hyper performances in SXSW, Central Park’s Summer Stage and CMJ Festival. They’ll be on the road this winter with Mexican EDM megagroup 3BallMTY. If you love your Bay Area rap like E-40 and Too $hort, listen to these guys.”
“…for the better part of the last decade, Oakland’s Los Rakas has been turning heads with its unique mélange – hip-hop, plena, soul, reggae and dancehall – of music that bounces between Spanish and English lyricism.”
“‘Asi Me Gusta’ shows Raka Dun serenading a topless (in a new sense of the word) seductress while under some type of hypnosis– taking a tongue-in-cheek, over-the-top approach to the already sultry lyrics.”
Debut album, “El Negrito Dun Dun & Ricardo” is out now!
