Live Video: Bocafloja

photo by Trevor Crump (view set)

By way of Mexico City, and now living in New York City, Aldo Villegas, a.k.a. Bocafloja, stopped by the KEXP studios for a live in-studio. Rapping in his native Spanish, Bocafloja displayed flows and styles that, even to those ignorant to the language, are filled with tremendous cadences and inflections, reminiscent Slug or Brother Ali. Bocafloja, who is also fluent in English, is releasing a book in 2014 – his second – which will be in both Spanish and English. The man is brave, coming into the studio and performing all on his own, with just instrumental tracks to back him. And, even though some of the linguistic meaning might be lost in translation, the force of Bocafloja is not. See for yourself here:
