Kid Frost

Kid Frost is one of the most popular (and probably the first) Chicano (i.e. Mexican American) rapper. He was first signed to an indie label and later on moved to VIRGIN RECORDS (that's where his biggest hit, "La Raza", came out "Chicano, and I'm brown and proud"), in 1995 he was signed by Ruthless (Eazy E's label) (distributed by Relativity and later on by Relativity/Epic/Sony), in 1999 Frost was signed to a small independent label (so he probably did not sell as many records as the major label ppl wanted him to.) Style-wise Frost moved from Electro Funk (a kind of electronic hip hop, as it says, in this and other cases with rapping on it) to a Latin-tinged kind of Gangsta rap that he's basically still into, although now often inspired by G-Funk (a more melodic kind of gangsta rap pioneered by Dr. Dre).
