If you dont know, LOS RAKAS is one of my favorite groups bringing a plethora of sounds and lyrics to keep my heart beating to their musica. THE GROUP is composed of DUN DUN (RAKA DUN) aka PANAMA and RICO aka FILTHY RICH (RAKA RICH). With origins from Panama and Africa their sound is World Music, Hip Hop and everything in between. They rep hard for their homeland and the BAY AREA, and it is an honor to know them and I hope work with them soon on many levels. CHECK THEM OUT on MTV2, Youtube and anyother music source. They are on the Up! and yet still so active in the community.
