Rap Single Online

Major shout out to Richie
Record Snobs music blog for sharing a real gem with us: a
1980 rap single from Peru. Serrucho Combe/La Cotorra
Criolla is a rare 45 that is unquestionably one of the first
rap singles released in Latin America.
Old school Spanish rap
heads will notice some semblance to Ruben DJ, although this
track obviously predates mainstream rap in Puerto Rican and
Panama by years.
Considering 1979's Rapper's
Delight was the first mainstream rap hit in the United States,
it's amazing to discover a rap single from Peru released only
a year later. To listen to this track, play the Youtube video
below. Anyone from Peru with a back story on this song,
send us an email
with the scoop.
