Weekend Reading 40

Juan Gotti was at Tha Westside Spot in San Antonio this week, promoting his new album.

‘Getcho Head Right’, featuring artists such as G Man, Pancho V, and Jes Latino, is dedicated to his father Juan Ramos. I stopped by to tell him about the blog and give him some cards.

About the album, Gotti said “It’s been a long time coming for twelve songs; but I’m back at it.”  

You can find it here, at 101D.COM/JUANGOTTI .

I picked up ‘Greatest Hits, el mas locote edition’ for the 10 unreleased songs, and I also got a chance to take a look at another work in progress:

Rasheed was also in town, promoting Sheedy Gonzales.’ I suck as a reporter and did not ask him much about it, but keep an eye out for him in your city. You can follow him on Twitter @Rasheed713, on Facebook, and find his music at 21st Century Entertainment.

I don’t have a list of featured artists or titles, but check out tracks 2, 9, 13 and 15. SPM’s on the hook of 9, and the others are just fucking awesome.

Jes Latino

Born in Weslaco and raised in San Antonio, Jes Latino started rapping out of high school. He toured with SPM early in his career and is now helping local artists as the owner and Executive Producer of Kriminar Ent.

How many albums have you put out?

“15 total under my independent label, and 3 solo.”

That’s a lot of work.

“Well, that’s one of the main goals as the owner of an entertainment company. My thing has always been to help the artists who don’t have the resources, to help them follow their dreams in the music business.”

What’s in the future?

“Right now I’m working on a compilation for Tha Westside Spot, to promote all the artists; plus me & Rasheed are working on a project.”

Jes Latino’s latest work ‘San Anto’s Most Wanted’ features many great artists, and you can see some of his work here: http://www.youtube.com/user/JESLATINO210

Tha Westside Spot

You can find music from Juan Gotti, Rasheed, Jes Latino and many other underground favorites at Tha Westside Spot in San Antonio, Tx. Housed alongside Martinez Barber Shop, you can visit their Facebook page or stop by in person.

And yes, they will have some ‘Free SPM’ shirts in stock soon.
