The Creators of Chicano Rap- Mellow Man Ace

Mellow Man Ace is also considered to be a creator of Chicano Rap. He was the first Latino artist to have a bilingual single. This was released in 1989, and gave Mellow Man Ace the title of "Godfather of Latin Rap." Even though Mellow Man Ace came about before Kid Frost he is not said to be the founder of Chicano Rap as he is not Mexican. Prior to going solo, Mellow Man Ace was a part of the rap group "Cypress Hill." This was the first group to become popular and have an album certified platinum.
