Crowds in excess of two million are expected to line Fifth Avenue on Sunday, June 13th for the 2010 Puerto Rican Day Parade. The parade will start at 11 am at Fifth Avenue and 44th Street and proceed uptown along Fifth Avenue to 86th Street. To help celebrate, check out our classic mix show "THE ZRO HOUR: ROOTS OF HIP HOP- Boricua Pride". After a few shots of Bacardi Anejo, Alexie F. and I rock the house with a tribute to some of the most influential Puerto Rican artists in hip hop. Hip Hop began in the Bronx, New York in communities where primarily Puerto Ricans & African-Americans shared the same neighborhoods. Download our tribute while you slow cook the pernil, simmer the arroz con grandules and fry the maduros. Be safe and avoid drinking and driving this weekend.

I have never heard this track before and it had me like what?? Came across this on youtube and it was posted in 2009. B.A.M. is dope. Gotta dig a bit more and check for his music. Below is another track with Keith Murray. New York, where we at? Support our emcees!
DJ Craze killed this little promo spot where he demonstrates his skills using Native Instruments' TRAKTOR.
Representing for Morgantown, WV Monstalung is the collective crew featuring 6'6 240, Ace Beanz, Johnny Harmonic, A Breezy. The crew has made considerable noise through the midwest both with tracks repping their home state of West Virginia and with lyrical and club joints.
This track caught me off guard! "Fresh Like Dougie", with its Beastie Boys sample as the hook, is infectious and fun. A lot of different flows and personalities in this crew.
