We just heard that Kid Frost has announced to the world he has cancer. The Urban Kings Staff is all hoping Kid Frost pulls through and has a speedy recovery. I remember when we featured Kid Frost in our History Of Chicano Rap segment, where we had the pioneers of music talk about their start and the influence they had on a culture. Everyone knows and heard his song La Raza, and how it crossed over into mainstream music. In this episode, Kid Frost talks about how he started rapping and how the music scene was, with the beginnings of Kid Frost, NWA and more. A very dope story told by the man himself.

Old English Brand : Whats up EMC Senatra, how did you link up and get signed to King Lil G‘s AK47 label?
EMC Senatra : My homie and cameraman who recently passed away, his name was J Rox, and he did some shoots with King Lil G. He told King Lil G that he had a young homie that raps and he ended up going to G’s house, and showed him a song, and G liked his music. He put me under his wing, put me on one of his songs and i just signed a deal with him on his label.
Old English Brand : What do you think of the new West Coast Movement?
EMC Senatra : I fuck with all of the new westcoast. I fuck with Gavlyn and Reverie and performing on same shows with them before I signed to King Lil G. I like everyones movement and how everyone is on their game. I think the west is going to come back up strong.
Old English Brand : Who is your top 3 artists – dead or alive – to collab with. Not the best artist in your opinion, but who are the top 3 artists you would do a song with?
EMC Senatra : SPM, I would love a song with Tupac but I know he would go crazy on me, he would go crazy. And I would say Future. He’s poppin right now, he’s really turnt up and I like his style. Those would be my 3.
Old English Brand : So let us know with your album. If you can tell us about the songs, the features, a estimated release date.
EMC Senatra : Im looking at March, I have it done already, but im still making more music, so if I like another track, I might switch some songs around. Im looking at March 23rd. And it will be a mixtape, release it on all the mixtape sites, give it away for free.
Old English Brand : Dope, we will be waiting for that for sure. What plans do you have for 2016 including your mixtape. Hows it looking for an album and shows?
EMC Senatra : G was talking about going to tour Europe next year. After we release my mixtape, we are going to let it spread to the world, then we are gonna tour Europe. Its going to be King Lil G, me, and the rest of the AK47 boys, which is Drummer, 2Tone, LA Gunsmoke, and we gonna just destroy Europe.
