Friday Night: DJ Erick Rincón and 3BallMty at El Chaparral

Page 2 of 2

Rincon drops one of his biggest hits -- "La Bomba" -- this time remixed in real time with the help of local rapper Chingo Bling. Both the track and the rapper receive praise from the crowd, and they embrace with a triumphant bro-hug that displays a mutual respect for each other's talent. He also unleashed the catchy new single "Intentalo" which will be available on iTunes next month.

We won't be surprised if we see 3BallMty at SXSW in the Spring or even at the other large Summer music festivals next year. On the contrary, we will be there with our pointy boots on!

Personal Bias: Hecho En Mexico

The Crowd: Young, Energetic, & Mexican

Overheard In The Crowd: "Mexicaaannoooos! A hueeeevoooooo!"

Random Notebook Dump: I witnessed a teenage fan of Chingo Bling trade his oversized religious medallion for a pair of Chingo's expensive designer sunglasses. Good trade!
