Cypress hill considered the first “Latino superstars” were pioneers in the Chicano rap movement with their experimentation of the rhythms and their voices leading to a major influence in 90’s hip hop. Big Pun was a successful one the first solo Chicano rap artists to be signed by a major label. Unfortunately, due to physical health problems he passed away, but not before forming the terror squad with Fat Joe. Currently, Fat Joe and Baby bash are spear heading the movement with just presence in mainstream hip hop and showing latino faces in thier videos.
