Los Rakas at Intersections

Read more

Remezcla Música presents Intersections, a second installation of an exclusive video series where word and streets merge with today’s leading and emerging Latin artists. In this special feature, we present Panama-via-Oakland’s hip hop, Caribbean duo Los Rakas, where you get a taste of the city, music, and culture colliding at its pristine and vibrant form.

In this exclusive episode, Remezcla sits down with the bilingual emcee duo Los Rakas, composed of DunDun and Rico AKA Filthy Rich, at the Williamsburg’s Modca cafe (earlier this year when it was still chilly). Here, the guys discuss the word of Panama (Panamanian slang), daydream a bit about the perfect lady, talk musical influences, and premier their rap “Yo vengo de Panama” (I come from Panama), which is on Los Rakas’ latest EP debut Chancletas y Camisetas Bordada.

Watch the hip hop, reggae Caribbean duo act Los Rakas rap in a Brooklyn cafe for Remezcla.
