“with our new partnership with Universal Musica and Sebastian Krys, ‘No Tan Listo’ is our bold statement to the world and the industry: they better prepare for our independently grown Raka movement and if not? They just might not be ready for it! We are inviting people to listen and share our brand of New American and New World urban sound.” – Los Rakas
The Panamanian born, now Oakland based Los Rakas take their name from the Panamanian word Rakataka” – long a slur used to describe someone from the ghetto. The duo of Raka Rich & Raka Dun have instead chosen to empower the term into a proudly touted badge for cultural Rebels – looking to both inspire and embolden fellow ‘Rakas’ to become successful despite their circumstances. In doing so, the fast-rising Afro-Latino Hip-hop stars have earned devoted fan & critical respect for creating a distinctive multicultural urban fusion (of both music & message) that shatters intolerant barriers of ethnicity, class limitation & genre conventions.
“Most everything that comes our way from the Los Rakas camp scorches but even by those standards, ‘No Tan Listo’ from Los Rakas debut album ‘El Negrito Dun Dun & Ricardo,’ is sizzling. Rhyming in his native español, [Raka Dun] deftly illustrates why ‘they ain’t ready’ over a propulsive beat from producer Yeti Beats that’s right in the sweet spot between dancehall and Panamanian plena.” – Okayplayer’s “Largeup”
