"The sun grows old" By Type 100

Spanish urban music. Not precisely everybody's cup of tea...
Until you listen to Type 100. Spanish can be very convincing as a rap language. I remember one of the first rap albums I bought (in 1990): "Hispanic causing panic" by Kid Frost. That was strange and unusual too. And Type 100 brings back to memory the Fun Loving Criminals as well.
This album is a mix of jazz orientated rap, hispanic flavoured hiphop, Sepultura-like rock and Olodum-inspired capoheira. But in every song there's influences by Grandmaster Flash and Ice-T. Does that make it oldschool or retro?
So put all your prejudice aside and thouroughly enjoy this album.
