    Thumbs up Anyone heard of O Rappa??

    Damn! They Are sick!! No one has probably ever heard of them, but just this past November, I went to Buenos Aires, Argentina for a month to visit my sister who was at the time, studying abroad down there. So we got tickets for this 2 day Music Festival (a cheap version of Coachella Fest, haha), Personal Fest, and on the day we went, Snoop Dogg, Calle 13, Cypress Hill, and Tego Calderon were performing. Haha, being the American kids we are, we were stoked to see Snoop and Cypress Hill, but of course they weren't perfoming until the end of the night...
    So while we were wondering around looking for some decent music to enjoy, we went to this stage where this Brazilian groove band was getting ready to jam out... By the way that they looked, it appeared that they weren't going to be anything special... But holy shit was I wrong!... These dudes fucking KILLED IT!! They didn't speak a hint of English or Spanish for that matter... only Portugeuse, but nobody cared... i didn't care... the language and the music was fuckin' mesmerizing! Such a beautiful language, and these dudes got stronger and stronger the more they played!!
    To give you an idea of what their music sounded like.. they were a band with a combination of P.O.D., SUBLIME, 311, Damien Marley, Incubus and Metallica, of course something else when you throw in the Portugeuse, but definitely something special. O Rappa! This band was awesome.. and i think that if they were to be invited to Coachella Fest this year... a lot of people would react so positively to them, people will wonder "Where the fuck did these guys come from? They're awesome!". They honestly made that music festival in Argentina worth going to, 'cuz in the end, Snoop sucked, and Cypress Hill was 'mediocre' compared to their 'Smoke-Out' performances.. O Rappa was the shit that whole weekend, and if the peepz that bring the bands to Coachelle Fest, would only do so much as check out O Rappa's page and see what kind of music they bring, that would be enough to maybe consider bringing them to Coachella this year, or next year...

    Cool.. Glad you checked it out... haha... these guys sound pretty bad ass stoned or sober... haha there was all kinds of people blazing up when they were perfoming.. but i saw what people were rolling in zig zags to smoke and that shit looked like the dirtiest weed imaginable! haha.. I was like 'damn, these people don't even know about the killer Cali!' But a nice blunt and O Rappa, makes for a very intense and amazing session!

    They played this song by the way, only fully rocked out, and it was really bad ass! Look at the rest of the vids when you get a chance.
