The LargeUp Sessions (5/16): Los Rakas + Deejay Theory

Words by LargeUp Crew—


It’s going to be a Bay Area takeover this Thursday night on the The LargeUp Sessions, as Our NorCal crew (and burgeoning Latin rap stars) Los Rakas and our own Mixtape Mondays columnist Deejay Theory—make their return to our radio show. Los Rakas are stopping through in advance of their Webster Hall show Friday night, amidst their run opening up theater shows for US reggae road kings SOJA; Theory comes to us fresh off a major (if unexpected) high note of his own: a well-received official remix of Demi Lovato’s chart-busting pop hit “Heart Attack.” Tune in to Thursday night from 6 to 8p.m. ET to hear how it goes down, and catch up with Los Rakas via their two latest videos—for “No Tan Listo” and “Mi Pais”—below.

LargeUp Premiere: Los Rakas Rep JA + Oscar Grant with “Hablemos Del Amor”

Words by Jesse Serwer—


You might be asking yourself right now: Los Rakas rep JA? Ain’t they those Panamanian dudes from the Bay? Yes, but they’ve just hopped on the brand-new riddim called Rep JA, from the streetwear label (and LargeUp family) of the same name. Gyptian, Laza Morgan, RDX, Kardinal Offishall, Dre’ and the Kid Daytona have all voiced the riddim but the inclusion of Los Rakas struck us particularly notable. Not only are we longtime supporters of Los Rakas and their efforts to bridge reggae, Panamanian plena and hip-hop but we knew they’d come with something extra strong.
