"For The Record: The Story of Latin Hip-Hop” Documentary by Varona Productions and CUTM Entertainment

Featuring interviews with legendary Latino artists, OG Kid Frost, B-Real of Cypress Hill, "Poetic Justice" Producer Scoop Deville and many more...

Some would say that Latinos are a minority in Hip-Hop.  Others proclaim that we've had a huge influence and play a large role in the Hip-Hop culture. We want you to decide for yourself. Our documentary explores these topics and more as several artists share their personal experiences and opinions.  

For the Record is a passion project for independent director John F.U—creator of the Hip-Hop web broadcast "The Core Live"The project is produced by music video producer Sandra Varona of Varona Productions. Radio personality Cecilia The Mamacita from Los Angeles' Latino 96.3 is co-producing and also hosting the documentary.  Raul Hernandez is now using his talents as director of photography on this project after working as a cinematographer on music videos for artists such as Ice Cube, Xzibit, and Young Jeezy. 

This campaign is extremely important to us because we don't want to limit our interviews to just West Coast artists. We want to document the stories of legendary Latino Hip-Hop artists across the country.
