Ski Beatz is obviously taking his thing global, teaming up with street-legal MCs from Cape Town to Panama City (via the Bay). Always on point wherever cultures soundclash, LargeUp has the story:
We’ve been doing our part to spread the Panabaynian gospel of Los Rakas for a while now and it seems that more and more people are catching on to what the duo of Rakas Dun and Rico have to offer. Fresh off their recent collaboration with fellow Bay Area-n, E-40, and being spotted in the studio with Diplo, legendary Brooklyn hip-hop producer Ski Beatz, of Roc-a-Fella fame, has tapped the duo for his upcoming Latin hip-hop project, 24 Hour Karate School Presents: 24 Horas Escuela de Karate. The result is a brief crane kick in the face called “Mr. Miyagi,” and it now has an NYC-set video which captures the interested parties (and one breakdancing toddler) soaking up NYC from the Williamsburg Bridge and a BK rooftop.
