Hear This: Los Rakas' Raka Rich Wants You to 'Check Yo B*tch'
Panama-born, Oakland-raised Raka Rich is best known as one-half of the rap group Los Rakas (with cousin Raka Dun), but he's also a solo artist who is planning to drop a new EP sometime in 2012. Today we have a taste of that release with a new single called "Check Yo B*tch." With its gentle, R&B- reminiscent backing track, and lyrics that portray some cocksure macking, the bilingual song harkens back to the player era of '90s Bay Area rap, when artists like Rappin 4-Tay and Dru Down parlayed coldly addictive anthems to international attention. Check the tune after the jump.
The song was produced by Nima Fadavi, who is hitting the road to DJ for a string of dates with various Northern California rap artists, including Roach Gigz, Clyde Carson, and Berner. Catch him with Andre Nickatina and Brotha Lynch Hung at San Francisco's Regency Ballroom on Dec. 10.
