During the week of July 4th, THE ZRO HOUR's own Alexie F. slid down to Miami to shake off some NYC stress and to connect with two great artists- La Originale Chica Del Reggae, SANDY, LA LOBA and Latin rapper MEXICANO 777. Sandy, La Loba is a pioneer of Latin Reggae/Reggaeton hailing from Columbia. La Loba got her start with Panamanian reggae legend El General. Alexie gets the goods on her journey thru reggae music as she braces for a major comeback. Mexicano 777 is a pioneer in Latin Hip Hop who spits pure venom with his spanish laced flow. He reveals his love for the music and his approach to his artistry. Alexie is granted this rare opportunity to interview both in the privacy of their homes. As a side note, Alexie conducted these interviews with the aid of his cell phone(!). La Loba will be co-hosting our upcoming show due 8/25 so stay tuned to the site for that. In the meantime, check out the interviews here:
