High powered and high speed confrontation of issues of history, slavery, agency and more. One more of the Epic Rap Battles of History.

Gente-fied | Series Trailer
GENTE-FIED is a web series produced by America Ferrera that follows seven characters as they deal with the effects of change in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Boyle Heights. An explosion of fusion tacos, LGBTQ raza, micheladas, defiant murals, generational clashes and more.

Prophets of Rage
Prophets of Rage combines the sonic firepower of Rage Against The Machine, Public Enemy and Cypress Hill.
