First Album: Grupo Fantasma

First Album: Adrian Quesada of Grupo Fantasma

The first album I remember buying was the Beastie Boys' Licensed to Ill. My friend Matt told me to get it 'cuz it had "Fight For Your Right To Party." I remember being really confused when I first heard it. I think I might have been a little young to appreciate the lyrics (that came a couple years later) but there was something really compelling about the beats. Up until then I didn't really appreciate rap. I was more into the style and breakdancers. After that I opened up my mind and within no time I was listening to N.W.A., Ice-T, Two Live Crew, etc.

Grupo Fantasma is on tour now, dates available here.
