Latin Playboys

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap, Rock; Producer (group): Warner Bros.

On Latin Playboys, they also wax lyrical, jive around in their native Spanish, and in at least one instance, pay homage to Captain Beefheart (”Chinese Surprize”). The wigged-out spirit is most welcome after a decade of Los Lobos’ tradition-conscious roots rock. B+
