Secret Stash

Three local hip-hop CDs spark the party you missed

On the same track, Felipe Cuauhtli makes a useful distinction: "The difference between a warrior and a soldier is/a soldier fights a war with no consciousness," he raps forcefully. "A warrior fights battles through common sense/So when I come to the battle with my feathers all stunning/we'll have a conversation in this language I'm drumming."

Here are two Spanish-speaking men of indigenous background savvy enough to provide their audience a lowrider anthem ("Slow and Low") as well as an all-Spanish jam ("No Puedo Explicar"), yet wise enough to admit that the weightiest confrontations facing their nation are on the tip of the tongue, not out of the barrel of a gun. They're also ballsy enough to wear traditional feathers while making their case. "Stunning" is right.
