Raka Dun’s American Dream

Los Rakas just released the first video from their new album El Negrito Dun Dun & Ricardo out on Universal Latino this past Tuesday. Directors The Perez Brothers really did their thing on this one, taking Dun’s verses from a narrative about the broken promises of the American Dream, to the place where the criminalized are forced to become actual criminals. Unfortunately it’s a story not unfamiliar to anyone belonging to a marginalized community in any country. However for the U.S., this statement will be a bold introduction for those who may be unfamiliar with the duo’s past work. I’m looking forward to see what else comes out of their new major label partnership. Check the video below and grab the album on iTunes.
