Kemo The Blaxican is a former MC and lyricist for West Coast Latin hip hop pioneers, "Delinquent Habits." Before Kemo went "solo," he was most notable as the brainchild of Delinquent Habits (DH), who happened to also be the only Spanish-fluent MC in the group. He spent twelve years with the collective, with whom he released four albums, and took the Delinquent sound around the world. In 1996 the group struck gold with their very first single "Tres Delinquentes," a song that masterfully fused a traditional mariachi sound (courtesy of Herb Alpert's "Lonely Bull") with the raw hip-hop backdrop of the streets. The sound was a breath of fresh air in a stale rap scene, and opened a new creative doorway into which many other Latin hip hop acts would follow.
Kemo The Blaxican talks with TMusic.
Q. What is your first music memory?
A. I can remember being 7 years old and taking what felt like long drives with my mother in her 74' Chevy Nova while listening to KRLA Oldies Radio. Later when I was 9,I got a taste of performing live when I performed in a school play named after the Stevie Wonder album "Songs In The Key of Life" I played a member of "Earth Wind and Fire" and we performed and lip sang " their song "Sing A Song". I recall the School inviting Stevie Wonder to attend and though he didn't make it we did get Fred "Rerun" Berry of the TV Show What's Happening to attend. I thought that was real cool.
Q. Please name 5 of your favorite books.
A. James Redfield - The Celestine Prophecy, John Perkins - Confessions of An Economic Hit Man,Sal Williams - Shot Gun To Head, Dr. Seuss - What was I scared of,Shel Silverstein - Falling Up
Q. If you could change one thing about the world what would it be?
A. I would put an end to poverty. The earth has plenty to go around.
Q. What would you most like to be remembered for?
A. For being a stand up hard working family man that treated others equally across the board while killing it on the mic in two languages,MC-ing and creating music with substance in the Hip-Hop and Latin Hip-Hop music scene.

Q. How did you first hear about the David Lynch Foundation ?
A. My friend and painter Michael Cano first spoke to me about the David Lynch Foundation and the TM program. Later I was invited to participate and contribute through my music to what I feel truly is a life changing gift for people..
Q. What was the inspiration behind your single "Breathe"?
A. I had lost my father not long before I wrote "Breathe" and thoughts of my father's passing and the little time we had to spend together while he was alive got me to thinking a lot about valuing our short time on earth. I had felt a great sense of loss when he died and I began reflecting on my own time with my kids,the memories we would build and the responsibility I have as a father to teach them to be the best human beings they can be. Sounds all mushy and what not but the song really grew from those thoughts.
Q. What brings you bliss?
A. It's the simple things really. Good times with my wife and kids friends and family,being creative in the studio,good food and drink and constant mental growth and progress.
