Best rapper on the verge
Don Blas's latest CD, Capo Di Tutti Capi, may display an Aurora address as its point of origin, but the high level of recording quality and Blas's own verbal dexterity would place it right at home in the hip-hop section of any record store in the country. Guest spots from heavyweights like Dready Kreuger of the Wu Tang Clan and local luminaries Kingdom and Cession help in the credibility department, but it's ultimately Blas himself who makes this recording hit, and blow up, the spot. Blas's invitation to the South by Southwest music conference in March was just one indication that forces outside of Colorado are taking notice of the mile-high MC.
