Monterrey, Mexico's Control Machete flows in fine style, blending English and Spanish as smoothly as they mix beats. This song -- Control Machete's contribution to the Spanglish 101 compilation on
Kool Arrow Records -- is a tune designed for cranking while cruising the Texas/Mexico border. These guys have made hip hop stick in Mexico, mixing American hip hop style with the laid-back Mexican lifestyle of their urban city without spelling it out or dumbing it down. The beats are thumping and the rhymes are tight, so kick back, download, and light up. It's going to be a nice ride.
