Don’t mistake this episode as being completely consumed by the major and minor works of convicted rapper, South Park Mexican. I was mainly looking for an excuse to post the above photo, though we do get into SPM’s “Mexican Radio,” and good times are had by several. For the latest Shots Fired, we had on Rheteric Ramirez (Hellfyre Club) and Scoop Deville, the son of Kid Frost, producer for Kendrick Lamar (“Poetic Justice,”) and Snoop (“I Wanna Rock”), and one-third of Digital Diamonds with Jonwayne and Chuck Inglish. In tangential news, Wayne and Scoop massacred Low End Theory last night with a set so savage it could make John Wayne, Kid Frost, Edan, and The Big Lebowski proud.

I’ll let the episode description handle it for me: Producer/rapper Scoop Deville & Hellfyre Club rapper Rheteric Ramirez join MC Nocando & Jeff Weiss this week to discuss the history of latin contributions to Hip-Hop. They start off by talking about several Latin Hip-Hop pioneers such as DJ Disco Wiz, Prince Whipper Whip, The Mean Machine, and Prince Markie Dee of The Fat Boys. Then they explore the West Coast Latin rap boom by talking about Mellow Man Ace, Julio G, Kid Frost, Cypress Hill, Psycho Realm, MC BLVD, and A Lighter Shade of Brown. Next they bridge the gap between the West Coast & East Coast by talking about Delinquent Habits, Big Pun, The Beatnuts, Fat Joe, and N.O.R.E. Finally, they make their way down South as they talk about Baby Bash, Chingo Bling, and South Park Mexican. Plus, we’re treated to some tracks by Scoop & Rheteric.
