Rap-Up: What, you didn't know DJ Chonz spun real hip-hop?
For a lot of hip-hop fans in Denver, DJ Chonz is only known as the afternoon and weekend DJ on the city's "hip-hop" radio station, KS107.5. They don't know he cut his teeth hustling mixtapes at Cinco De Mayo, competing in Regional DMC Championships, and opening up for national artists like The Roots, Goodie Mob, Tha Alkaholiks and dozens more. They also don't know he's been releasing underground hip-hop mixtapes for quite sometime now. One of the latest is Catch the Buzz 3, featuring everyone from Chino XL and Rhymefest to locals Playalitcal and Infinite Mindz. Listen to it and download it after the jump. - Quibian Salazar-Moreno
