Chicano Rap is a subgenre of rap and hip hop. It is performed and created by Mexican Americans and is done through poetic rhyming in English and Spanish. Chicano rap is never created or performed in just one language. Such as English only as that would be regular rap, or in just Spanish as that would be Spanish rap. It is one of the few genres of music in the world that is particularly created and performed in 2 languages as most genres of music are only done in one language. It is distinctively done in two languages, English and Spanish because Mexican Americans speak both languages. This is done because in Mexican-American culture speaking in Spanglish or in Calo is an everyday thing for Chicanos. Although Calo is Spanish it is not proper Spanish. Chicanos invented Calo and Spanglish both. Spanglish is a mixture of Spanish and English together and is not proper Spanish either. Chicano Rap also talks about topics that directly affect the Mexican-American community and also celebrates and articulates Mexican-American culture in the United States as Chicano Rap was created in Los Angeles. Also for those of you that do not speak in Spanish the word Chicano means Mexican American in English.
