ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: Buxaburn

Originally posted on ginoblogs:

VetBuxaburneran rapper Buxaburn also known as Warbux has been recording music since 1992 when I was learning how to read and counting up to 100 – so therefore he’s not new to this game we call music, and I know I didn’t say “hip-hop” – well that’s because Buxaburn is an artist influenced by different genres such as reggae, funk, soul, blues and rock and roll. It’s surprisingly quite rare to find a rapper with a universal taste in music in this modern era. He was once a member of a rock band and a gangsta rap group – he’s a socially conscious artist with a rhyme pattern and delivery that will have 90’s hip-hop fans begging for more and comparing it to other greats such as Rakim and Kool G Rap. So that’s always a good thing right?

The Santa Ana, CA native’s album The Distance features the excellent

A West Coast based rapper who has largely been influenced by East Coast hip-hop/rap music. Cruz moved to Santa Ana at the age of 10 but has always kept New York close to his heart – a city where he first saw hip-hop popping off, and until this day he keeps those memories with him when he rides through the streets of his new home Santa Ana.

He is currently promoting his latest project Quiques Rebellion (El Terrible Strikes Back - a politically charged album with a social message that goes against any form of control system that surrounds us.

Puerto Rico is the oldest colony in the western hemisphere. It was a colony of Spain for almost 400 years and has been a colony of the US since 1898. Throughout that whole time Puerto Ricans have fought for their freedom. In the 1930′s the Puerto Rican Nationalist Party,  led by Don Pedro Albizu Campos, came to prominence by directly and openly challenging US authority in Puerto Rico. The US responded with increased repression against the Nationalists in the form of arrests, imprisonment and murder.

October 20th, 1935 the founder and leader of the Puerto Rican Nationalist Party Don Pedro Albizu Campos gave a radio address in which he criticizes a program to “Americanize” the University Of Puerto Rico that is being instituted by US colonial interests. A group of students in support of the measure want Albizu declared “Student Enemy Number One”.

NEW MUSIC & VIDEO | Quique Cruz is “The Baddest of the Bad” | WATCH & DOWNLOAD NOW

TBOTB Cover

On the morning of September 3rd, 2013, a long time acquaintance DJ Exile, of Dirty Science, dropped a beat tape… along with announcing that he will be upgrading to new beat making hardware. The instrumental album features joints that were never before released… unused beats.. untouched. So… after giving the whole thing a listen and becoming inspired… I went ahead and put this song together to this beat… which is one of my favorites on the album.

Me (Quique Cruz) and Exile go back to the early/mid 90’s. We’ve been on underground mixtapes in the distant past… but, oddly enough, I’ve NEVER had the chance to rock an Exile beat. So… I finished up my coffee and got right to work. This is what I do for fun!
