RZA Launches Wu Tang Latino

The RZA has teamed

up with Ray Acosta, former VP of Musica Latina and Marketing at UBO, to launch

a new label, Wu-Tang Latino.

"Wu-Tang Latino is the perfect fusion between Hip-Hop and

Reggaetone," Acosta, President of Wu-Tang Latino, told AllHipHop.com. "I

felt it was necessary because we [as Latinos] love Hip-Hop but in the love for

Hip-Hop, we were losing our culture. So I feel that this joint venture with

RZA is the perfect solution because it’s Hip-Hop and Reggaetone, but it’s not

too overwhelming from either side to where you don’t know what you’re listening

to."

The label has already signed four artists who all plan on dropping

albums next year.

“I am happy with the venture" artist/producer Rameses

said. “I have been a fan of Hip-Hop since forever, so to team up with

members of the Wu-Tang Clan and to be on a label that has the same vision for

my music as I do, is incredible."

In addition to Rameses, artists Ruster, NP Killah, Shown Black

and Gil will be some of the artists featured on the upcoming Wu-Tang Latino

mixtape due out in August.

"We just want to bring everyone together." Acosta

continued. “We want to create our own type of music on the East Coast,

because we have Reggaetone, but the West coast has Regional Hip-Hop for Mexicans.

Eventually I would like it all to be classified as Latino Hip-Hop to embrace

us all."

Look out for the

debut single from Rameses featuring Mef to be out as soon as next week.
