First Latin Hip-Hop Artist to go Platinum???? WTF???? :ermm:
Remember Mellow Man Ace?
Urpiano Sergio Reyes, a.k.a. Mellow Man Ace, arrived in the United States at age four from his native Cuba. He first appeared in the pages of Latin Beat Magazine in February 1991 (Volume 1, Number 2), at which time he was enjoying the release of his debut album (Escape From Havana, Capitol Records). The album produced the international hit song Mentirosa, making Mellow Man the first Spanish-language rapper on the scene, as well as the first Latin rap artist to reach gold and platinum sales in the U.S. and Latin America.
