“No Tan Listo is Los Rakas first single off their upcoming Universal Musica debut on iTunes now. Los Rakas say of the song: “With our new partnership with Universal Musica & Sebastian Krys we wanted to make a bold statement to the world & the industry: they better prepare for our independently grown Raka movement and if not? They just might not be ready for it! We are inviting people to listen & share our brand of New American and New World urban sound.

In other Raka news, their collaboration with rock outfit The Bots for the Converse Cons EP also came out on VICE Noisey. The song is called “Spaceshippin’!” It’s great to hear Raka Rich in English over this dream pop-boom bap beat produced by Yeti Beats: “This Raka movement is sacred…my crew be livin’ forever, because we’re stickin’ together…that’s the motto I live by, and that’s only making us better!” Hear the song now:
