Rebel Diaz have been on the front lines of political Hip Hop since they arrived on the scene with their high energy hit’em hard performances and profound socially conscious lyrics have separated them from your average emcees. We highly recommend you come out to experience a Rebel Diaz show Fri.Nov.18th! We brought them out last year and they blew us away with their live show! True Hip Hop for all you heads that can appreciate quality lyricism! On this tour they’re coming with Chicago’s own Dj Illanoiz, Sub Verso all the way from Chile along with local favorite Mic Jordan of Tribe of Levi!
Fronted by MC’s Rodstarz and MC/Producer G1, Rebel Diaz shows us the true global power of Hip Hop. After first performing at an immigrant rights march in New York City in 2006 in front of a half million people, the bilingual duo has taken the international community by storm with their explosive live shows. With influences ranging from Dirty South bounce to South American folk, Rebel Diaz combines classic boom bap tradition with Hip Hop’s global impact. The group’s versatility has allowed for them to share the stage with the likes of Common, Mos Def, and Public Enemy, while feeling right at home with acts like Rage Against the Machine, and Mala Rodriguez. Recent tours in Spain, Germany,Guatemala, Venezuela, and Chile, have only solidified their international appeal.
With roots in Chicago and now based in the South Bronx, NY, Rebel Diaz has also piqued the interest of the academic community with their poignant social commentary and energetic performances. They have spent the last four years visiting dozens of colleges and universities, facilitating workshops, speaking on panels, and performing at national conferences. Building on this growing network of positive young people in Hip Hop, the group recently opened a community arts center in the South Bronx, the Rebel Diaz Arts Collective.
On the heals of their critically acclaimed Otro Guerrillero mixtape series, Rebel Diaz will soon be releasing their debut album, The Radical Dilemma.
