Holding down the status of a “major without a major deal,” Silver Lake, Los Angeles native and Chicano rapper Mr. Criminal is preparing to release his twelfth studio album, Rise to Power. Hoping that his many years of hard work will finally translate into nationwide success, the 26-year old has snagged better-known Latino MC, Fat Joe, for a feature verse on the album’s first single, Drop It and Rock It. As both artists show their ability to make it rain on the females, singer Fingazz and his vocoder (…it’s here to stay, so stop complaining) enhance the track’s chauvinism over a beat that will surely inspire some creative moves in the club. If bangers are your preference, Rise to Power hits stores and online retailers June 24.
