Out The Box Double Feature

Urban Kings Music Group released a passion project along with Richard Cabral, formerly known as Baby Jokes, called “Out The Box“. It was a spoken word poem, written and performed in monologue by Richard. The performance was powerful, moving and groundbreaking, because this is the first of its kind that I have seen something like this. With so many feelings and emotions, its hard not to have any feelings while the artist is pouring his heart and soul into the viewer, painting a picture in your mind of a flashback of Richards life.

We will continue to release episodes of Out The Box, and we have released two more episodes! A Double feature with two very talented artists, Matthew Perez and Tui Asau. Each episode will not be exactly the same, and each episode will feature an artists journey. Below are Matthew and Tui’s episodes of out the box, with the original artwork of its release!

First is the Out The Box episode Staring Matthew Perez, giving an amazing, powerful and raw monologue, performing an original and true story about his life. Watch and listen as he takes you through his childhood and paints a picture so clear, you can close your eyes and imagine your walking right next to him in every situation. Get lost in his story as he tells you his true tale about growing up in East Los Angeles. He titled his poem “Spoken Words”

Out The Box – Staring Matthew Perez


This episode features Tui Asau, a talented artist from Los Angeles, California. Each Out The Box episode is different, because each artist is different and has different talents.  Tui is a talented music artist and he plays for everyone a unique song that he has written and produced himself. Equipped with only a guitar and a voice, Tui’s powerful song is not only catchy, but the lyrics are impacting. Watch the video and enjoy!

Flashback Friday Video – Big Pun Freestyle

Flashback Friday today is one of my favorite hip hop artists of all time. Big Pun spits a vicious freestyle in front of DMX and Mos Def and he spits off the top for 2 minutes in a rare video freestyle. Make sure to watch the video and let us know what you think at The Urban Kings Facebook Page!

Richard Cabral Does An American Crime

Did you know that Richard Cabral has a supporting role in one of the biggest upcoming television shows of the season? The show is called American Crime and will be aired nationwide on ABC. This is a really good story about a court case that is centered on the murder of a young couple in Modesto, California, and the racial lines between the community. The trailer has just been released, and the show looks really really good. I cant give out too many details yet, as everything is completely confidential, even the debut date, but the show has officially been picked up by ABC for a full season. Richard Cabral, formerly known as Baby Jokes, has a large supporting role in the series, and you will see more of him soon, as he just confirmed to a new role alongside Mel Gibson (Brave Heart, The Patriot, Lethal Weapon, etc). Stay posted for huge news on Richards upcoming roles and new music!

UKMG Last Time Seeing Wreck..

Wicked Minds, I just saw Wreck about 1 week ago before he passed. Out of nowhere he appears as if he was there to say good bye. We talked and I even took pics with him. He told me he was proud of how far I had gone, I mean, I’ve  known Wreck since I was a kid. We always kept in touch and I’m glad I got to see him one last time and shake his hand and heard his blessings. So now as I’m flying back from NEW YORK altitude 35977 Ft up in the sky i still can’t see how this happened. If anybody can donate click the link below, and help spread the word.
