There are many hip hop scenes growing in Latin America due to the constant migration of people from one country to another and it has greatly influenced the dispersion of cultures and music across the globe. In the music realm, Puerto Rican rap emerged as a form of cultural and social protest within the Puerto Rican context and with so much migration Latin America continues to make a substantial impact on music overall. On July 18, coming to NYC is Puerto Rican hip hop artist El Feca hit the stage at The Latin Music Networking Conference. I caught up with Latin Rapper El Feca for an Interview and here’s what he had to say.
The Latin Music conference features some of the hottest up-coming artists the event takes place at July 18 at Hudson River Café 697 W 133rd St NY 8pm. For more info go to https://www.facebook.com/events/1448574048733064/
