"Where do I start with these guys? Lets see,their music was potent & driving force in the Latin Rap Game. Their music was an Integral Influence on Chicano Rap. They were on of the first acts to introduce the Sound of Chicano Rap to the masses and the first to establish a Strong Following in the Latin Rap Market. Brown & Proud,Lighter Shade of Brown's first studio release proved to be Propulsive & Powerful Hip-Hop Music with a Meaningful Message. Lighter Shade's album was amusical mix of traditional Mexican music elements such as
percussion and Hard-Edged West Coast Funk Flavors with good instrumentation as well as beats that you could bump in your trunk. Every song on here is as addictive as the next. Some songs are Informative & Enlightening Lyrically(Brown & Proud,El Varrio,Pancho Villa,and so on) while others are Straight Up Party Jams & Grooves 2 Cruise 2(Spill The Wine,T.J. Nights,& Latin Active are a few of the funky cuts). Either way, Lighter Shade puts it Down 4 the Brown. If you've been interested about something to introduce you to Latin Rap,but don't know where to start-Definately Buy this album or anything by Lighter Shade of Brown."
