Inland Empire’s own Slick-C and Ital Santos come together for Sermones with production and raps from both of them. Their particular brand of Inland Empire Chicano funk-hop is evident but with more wisdom and a matured almost subdued but sinister melodic sound. Slick-C brings out the goodwill in Santos and this record sees them both turn more attention to the fortunes of the next generation.
In “Don’t Follow Them Footsteps”, Slick and Santos share hood tales of multiple generations of tragedy as a cautionary story for young kids in cities like the IE’s San Bernardino.
