Tha Mexakinz
Duo pioneer of Latin rap in the United States and the world, I-Man and Sinful established themselves in the early 90’s with their hardcore, funky bilingual rhymes and melodies. Their song “La Plaga” became anthems for Spanish Hip Hop across the world.

 

Caballeros Del Plan G
Pioneers of Hip Hop in Mexico, currently with over 17 year of touring and rocking shows.  DJ Jonta, Toxikon, Indho, Simplee and Serko Fu helped shape the scene in Mexico. Not only are the Caballeros the first in rap to publish albums, videos and singles independently, but they helped created stages and pave the way so that future Hip Hop acts in Mexico could rock shows.  Collectively released about 10 albums,  including compilations and solo projects. CplanG is hands down one of the most important groups of Mexico’s rap history to date.

Sekreto
The best way to describe Sekreto is that he is that he is to Caballeros Del Plan G what Derek Taylor was to the Beatles.
