I first discovered El Compa Negro and Kap G in conjunction with each other on Poet Lupe Mendez‘s Instagram page.  He noted that the two artists represented intersectionality at its finest.  Kap G, a Mexican American rapper who grew up in Atlanta with majority Black Americans, rap-sings “trap” music and sounds a lot like Future.  El Compa Negro, an African American Corrido and Banda singer, embraces Mexican culture.

Music is one of the ways that people connect and I love the community bridges that these artists are building.

Check out performances by both of these artists!

 

Be sure to check out Kap G’s and El Compa Negro’s sites.
