A versatile story teller with powerful lyrics fervent with allegory, Nando Chang cascades styles and topics across all genres with a multicultural perspective. Born in Chiclayo, Peru Fernando Chang was raised by his grandmother of Chinese decent while awaiting permanent residency sort by his parents in the USA. During this time of innocence, a young Nando became chiclayano.  

The official video of international recording artist Nando Chang aka Chiclayano.

The video was shot in Lima,Peru by Lync Films. “Despido” or Dismissal in English is a true story of the rejection and unfulfilled promises that Nando has faced in his journey as an individual and as a Latin kid from Chiclayo,Peru looking to be the next big star from that country. The song takes a bit of controversial turn with his reference to L.A. based Mexican rapper Malverde, whom Nando once held in high esteem before as the song says “malverde never called”. Fervent with truthful lyrics and the beauty of his country on full visual display, Despido truly delivers on a major level.

In December of 2002, Nando Chang immigrated to America. Thru hip-hop, the English language was acquired. Also, during these teen years, Nando Chang became heavily influenced and involved with the speed life. Nando, and his need for speed, is an avid street racer of high powered cars and motor bikes.

As a result, Chiclayano suffered a near death accident in the summer of 2008 in which he fell into a coma for several weeks. The near death experience motivated his speedy recovery, relatively speaking. During rehab (which continues today), while unable to walk, and barely speak, Mr. Chang further developed his craft and love for rap music.

Nando Chang realized his true being and destiny as self awareness was achieved via this out of body experience. Internationally, Nando seeks respect from both music creators and fans alike and is destined to receive both. As a member of the hOLLANDjUNGLE Music group, NandoChang aka “Chiclayano” has developed a unique musical style and category in both English and Spanish languages. With full support from the village, the pride and joy of Chiclayo, Peru NandoChang ….

Back in the day of old school music and clubbing, there was a person that would stand on the stage and play songs on a turn table. Back then they were called DJ’s. The crowd loved that they played endless songs. Something like this.

Now they are called MashUPs. And the people that create these Mashups are perceived to be Musical Gods or Grand Musicians. What ever you call it, to me it’s just mixing songs other people created.

Something from Nothing - The Art of Rap

Ice-T takes us on an intimate journey into the heart and soul of hip-hop with the legends of rap music.  This performance documentary goes beyond the stardom and the bling, to explore what goes on inside the minds, and erupts from the lips, of the grandmasters of rap.

Recognised as the Godfather of Gangsta Rap , Ice-T is granted unparalleled access to the personal lives of the masters of this artform that he credits for saving his life.  Interspersed with the performer’s insightful, touching, and often funny revelations are classic raps, freestyle rhymes, and never before heard acapellas straight from the mouths of the creators.  What emerges is a better understanding of, and a tribute to, an original American art form that brought poetry to a new generation.

Check out the trailer below:

He goes by the screen name St Nic on Facebook and according to his information page he has studied at the University of Life (my Alumni). He is the current CEO and President of Devil’s Kitchen Entertainment. His latest video upload gives us a taste of his lyrical wit and style; I like it myself quite much. If you like rap and get the groove of St Nic, become a fan and follow him (Facebook ) as he will take you on a musical journey, not often offered in the current Indie artist community.

The first generation of rap just wanted the world to know, who they were, and what the culture was in their part of the hood. As the years evolved, some changes have been made and the ghetto has more than just a dark skinned face. Now the ghetto looks like any other street, city, town, or block, with a rainbow of colors that walk into and out of the buildings that form the walls.

As I comb through the many messages left on the walls of a face book, or the tweets of a follower, I hear the mood of the music. The signature card floats about, each message and graces almost every page. Does the music forever Make The Mood?

King Issa mixtape Hosted by DJ Holiday

You tell me. I begin with the mixtape of King Issa hosted by DJ Holiday. His tracks take us on a journey that begins with a favorite tale of “David and Golliath”. After a “Tag” we encounter “A hundred ft Gorilla Zoe”. (I am reminded of the book “The Odyssey” http://www.mythweb.com/odyssey/index_ulysses.html ). Moving through the streets paved with lyrics that express a many thoughts we visit with “Dear Mama” ft TC and finish the journey at ‘Arriven”. How befitting. You can stream these songs by following this link. http://www.datpiff.com/Issa-King-Issa-mixtape.301131.html

Or you can download and listen to it on your PC or MP3. Downloading is easy, if you need assistant let me know, I will be glad to blog about it.
