He started a sub-genre of Rap, introducing Spanglish rhymes over beats with samples of oldies and Chicano cruising classics. His music propelled Chicano culture around the world. His 1990 hit song La Raza was a global phenomenon. His music career started in the early 1980’s and his rap name, Kid Frost, is a tribute to the rapper Ice-T, who he often battled at Hip-Hop functions in the Los Angeles area.
