Los Chicos Criollos, a rap group comprising the talented Kingdom Kome and Ché Uno, stands as a paradigm of lyrical skill and cultural synthesis in the world of hip-hop. Born from a connection sparked by an upcoming Argentinian rapper, Kingdom Kome and Ché Uno’s partnership transcends mere collaboration, evolving into a full-fledged musical endeavor with their first joint project in 2023.
Their musical style is a testament to their skills as wordsmiths and lyricists, adept in both English and Spanish. Unlike many in the genre, their transition between languages is seamless, displaying an effortless ability to create records in pure English, Spanish, or a fluid blend of both in a single track. This linguistic versatility, coupled with their competitive nature, ensures a constant evolution of their music, keeping it organic and authentic.
Their debut album, self-titled “Los Chicos Criollos,” released in 2023, has been a significant milestone. It features tracks like “Golazo” ft. Cousin Feo from Death at the Darby and “Shootouts in Rosario,” showcasing their unique blend of Latin and hip-hop influences. The album’s success has resonated particularly in Europe and Latin America, notably in Colombia, Argentina, and Mexico, marking a robust entrance into the international music scene.
Their dynamic performances have already left a mark in Miami, and plans are underway for a comprehensive tour in 2024, spanning South America, the United States, and Canada. This tour is anticipated to further cement their presence and impact in the global hip-hop community with their next album, “Dios Sucio,” set to release in 2024 through CMNWLTH. This album pays homage to the legendary Diego Maradona, a figure deeply rooted in Argentinian culture and history, highlighting the group’s connection to their heritage.
As hip-hop purists and students of the game, Kingdom Kome and Ché Uno each bring their unique perspectives and backgrounds to the table, creating a rich tapestry of sound and narrative. Their mutual respect for the elements of hip-hop and their affinity for Polo, reflected in their association with LoLife Argentina, enriches their collaboration.
Los Chicos Criollos have rapidly carved out a niche for themselves, appealing to a diverse audience that spans continents. Their work resonates deeply with listeners who appreciate the fusion of deep narratives and unadulterated expressions. Their groundbreaking debut and promising future projects are not just a musical group but a cultural phenomenon. Blending the traditional with the contemporary, they embody the spirit of innovation and the relentless pursuit of artistic excellence, poised to leave an indelible mark on the world stage.
