The Unseen Legion is Hip-Hop. And so it is a little bit of the streets. Every street. Everywhere. It is the underdog in the fight, the underground in the struggle. It is hands-on, do-it-yourself, something-out-of-nothing. It is the music and language of survival, all around the world.
The Unseen Legion is people everywhere. In the true Hip-Hop tradition, we pay homage to our roots while taking care of the present, and building for tomorrow.
The Unseen Legion is NOW. It is cultural revolution and spiritual evolution. It is introspection and self-expression. It speaks truth to power... and the music never lies.
Episode 48: OG Chino & Dread Daze
UNSEEN LEGION RADIO has a strong commitment to preserving and spreading knowledge of Los Angeles hip-hop history. And so it was our great honor to host BIN GRIM's big honors OG CHINO, former co-owner of B-Boy Records and his lifelong friend NAJASHI, lead singer of the incredible reggae band, DREAD DAZE. We talked about his Korean/Colombian origins, his upbringing in the mean streets and how he was another of those whom hip-hop saved from a brutal (and possibly short) life. Chino is a staple in the L.A. hip-hop community, having worked with Def American, managed Kool Keith and Large Professor, among others, and having even run East Village Radio in New York for a short while before returning to L.A. YESKI couldn't join us, but Chino also carries much graf clout, too.The OG even got on the decks with his Serrato setup and gave us a taste of classic L.A. DJ Stylee in a special set dedicated to Bin Grim.
All in all, it was great extended conversation, with gems thrown in by all present. Thanks to G DAWG from VLA GAME MEDIA for coming thru with VEGA$ $UPREME to film the evening. And of course, special thanks to your hosts, DJ EARL-E & MC PROSE for another great episode of Unseen Legion Radio. Enjoy!
