Shout out to NPR Alt.Latino‘s Jasmine Garsd for admitting she didn’t really dig Los Rakas at first, haha! That honesty’s refreshing, and it also displays the unique gift of the group: their music falls across so many genres (rendering it genreless in my opinion) and therefore its appeal is really broad. Which makes it even more GLOBALLY accessible (obvio). I can’t wait till the rest of the world figures it out…but in the meantime, we’ll take the 20 million+ weekly listeners who tune into NPR…

“It’s a sweetly earnest song, and in a sea of rappers reciting endless lists of brand names, sexual positions and expensive traveling destinations, it’s beautiful to remember what true love for music feels like.” – NPR Alt.Latino
The guys also just did an interview w/ MTV Iggy where they announced the name of their upcoming EP, ‘Chancletas y Camiseta Bordada EP’ – set for release in the spring.
