The Latin Rap Conference, the first music industry conference focusing on Latin Rap, Reggaeton, and the Latin Urban genre, is coming back to New York City on October 11th-13th.

Credited by Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Latin Media and Entertainment Commission for providing a testament to the genre’s ever-increasing potential and appeal, the LRC has built a strong reputation for bringing together hundreds of participants

ranging from executives, publicists, marketers and corporations to artists, Indy labels and internet companies for the purpose of growing the Latin Rap and Reggaeton movement. LRC attracts major sponsors and media such as ASCAP, Clear Channel, Univision, Telemundo, Universal Records, Sony Music, MTV, Sirius, XM, and artists like N.O.R.E., Lil Rob, Chingo Bling, and Voltio. The next conference, being held at New York City hotspot LQ’s (Latin Quarters), will consist of informative panels discussing fundamental aspects of the trade and will feature showcases from both established and up-and-coming artists in the genre.

Organized by Jesse Perez, p.k.a. Shysti of Sicko Records, Rich Isaacson and Jerry Blair of Fuerte Group, and Clear Picture Entertainment Group, the LRC has become the forum for The Latin Rap Coalition Board of Directors (a group comprised of the genre’s top music executives, professionals, artists, and radio personalities) to discuss and take action towards the goals of education and Latino community empowerment. “The LRC has become the single most important networking event in this industry and we’re honored to have the full support of this growing community,” says Rich Isaacson who has already confirmed the addition of Boy Wonder of Chosen Few Emerald Entertainment, Elias DeLeon (owner of Puerto Rico’s White Lion Records), and Gaby Acevedo, President of SRC Records and manager to Tego Calderon, to the board of directors. Established members of the board already include Gustavo Lopez (President of Machete Records), the nationally syndicated Pocos Pero Locos founders Khool Aid and E-Dub, Univision Radio’s Pete Manriquez, John Lopez of Upstairs Records, DJ Kazzanova of New York’s La Kalle 105.9, Mexican-American rapper Chingo Bling, and Toy Hernandez of Control Machete.

The fourth installment of the Latin Rap Conference will mark the second consecutive time the conference will take place in New York City, the birthplace of hip-hop.
