When a rapper opens up a verse with the line, “It was all a dream,” (the first line of Biggie‘s Juicy), a powerful rags-to-riches story is typically expected to follow. West Coast native and self-proclaimed “Latin Lyrical Assassin,” Omar Cruz, proves to be no exception, as he details his journey from rock-bottom (hearing gunshots every night while trying to sleep) all the way To The Top (now signed to major label Geffen/Interscope). Popular Latin-Pop singer Frankie J accents the song’s strength and determination with his vocals and also assisting is producer Julian Bunneta, who provides a low-riding, smooth-cruise beat. To hear more of Omar’s journey, pick up a copy of his debut, Sign of the Cruz, expected to be released later this year.
