Guess who’s back! If you guessed Navarro, you’re right. The homie Navarro (FKA Scheme) has been busy teaching young minds in the City’s Little Village Lawndale High School, which is why you haven’t heard much from him recently. I have a great feeling that we’re going to be hearing a lot more from him after this. “If You Want to Believe” is produced from Panik and is dedicated to his students.

If You Want to Believe (produced by Panik) – this one is for my students from MAS at Little Village Lawndale High School. I had reached a point in my life where besides making music, I felt a disconnect with serving and being of some assistance to our society. I was blessed with a position at this school and these kids have changed my life more than they could imagine. I wish I can save them all and fix all of their problems, but unfortunately that isn’t always the case. I’m just glad I can speak to them, give them some perspective and hope that I can get through to them somehow. I just want them to see the world and understand that they are capable of changing it for the better. This one is for them.

Kinto Sol

Last Friday, May 24th, legendary Chicano Rap group, Kinto Sol, took over Chicago’s The Shrine. While The Shrine is best known for its place in Chicago’s Hip Hop culture, this time it hosted a night that featured a Latin twist to the genre.  With a good combination of a classic act and young talent, Chicago’s South Loop was witness to a great, fun night of Latin Hip Hop.

The veteran Latin rappers headlined a bill that included mostly local acts like Serpientes y Piramides, Scheme with DJ Scend, and Esohel with Ricky Dubs. Hit the jump and check out clips we took of each performance in order in which they appeared. Also, below the performances, you will find some hi-def pics from that night.

He also gave the audience an insight look of where he got his inspiration from for each song and performed a couple of songs with music. Check out some of the footage below. Continue Reading

Scheme – Vista Del Mar (Video)

posted by Alex February 27, 2013

Scheme decided to drop the visuals to his deep and personal Spanish joint, “Vista Del Mar” today. The video was shot and directed by the one and only, Sense Hernandez.

“Vista Del Mar focuses on family and those sacrifices we all have to make it to follow a dream. Scheme wrote and recorded Vista Del Mar with the focus of telling a part of the story; this particular story focuses on his grandma never seeing the ocean, and how he hasn’t had the chance to take her, but brought it to her sonically, with hopes of one day making it a reality. Reminiscing over family pictures, Scheme tells his story, and the story of many. Our parents left in pursuit of a dream, and all we want is to see it come true for them.”
