Singled Out no.3 - Ozomatli - 'Cut Chemist Suite'

Imagine the delight when a 15 year old Jurassic 5 fan heard Chali 2na rapping over delicious latin beats. Imagine the surprise when, 9 years later the same J5 fan looks it up on Amazon and sees people attempting to sell a CD single for silly money.

Well, thankfully that 15 year old bought the CD the moment it came out and now doesn't have to cough up a tenner or more to hold it in his hands. And this is, to ressurect last years series, the third single to feature in Certified Banger's world famous 'Singled Out'.

Ozomatli are band who play a fusion between Hip Hop, Rock and traditional Latin genres, I wont bore you with all the details, you can do that here. What I will chat about is what's important, mainly that 1/3 of Jurassic 5 (in the line-up of the day) featured heavily on this release and that is why it caught my ear. It was all about that track in those days, when you could only afford a few CD's and downloads were yet a twinkle in their mother's eye, and I can't really remember the other tracks. But here they are for you anyway:
