Just a couple of weeks prior he posted a photo of himself being in the hospital due to a blood disease. My deepest condolences go to his family and friends!

O.G Kid Frost finally released classic mixtapes to the digital world

Frost Chicano Rap

If I remember correctly it was between 2011 to 2013 when the godfather of Chicano Rap, O.G Kid Frost, released 3 classic albums/ mixtapes called "All Oldies", "All Oldies 2" and "Old School Funk". These days the hard copies are harder and harder to get and if you are lucky to find one, you may have to pay one of the insane prices some Chicano Rap releases are going for these days. Back in 2014 Frost and Big Tank released a video for their song "Backstabaz" which is taken from "All Oldies 2" and which can been seen by clicking here. The good news is that all 3 titles were released to digital stores earlier this year, so if you haven't been able to pick up any of the CDs you can now just move over to the known dealers such as Amazon, iTunes or Tidal.
