In addition to being home to legendary emcees Notorious B.I.G. and Jay-Z, NYC’s biggest borough, Brooklyn also boasts one of the largest Latino communities in the country. This community has been represented well by Joell Ortiz, but in the past year that crowd has become two with the arrival of Emilio Rojas, whose record Young, Fresh & Fly was featured last week. Frustrated with his family’s housing situation and various drug addictions, Rojas explains to his audience how few have actually experienced true Pain. Produced by Reality, Pain will be included on the upcoming compilation album, For Future History; very little has been revealed about the project, but its release is right around the corner.
