Latin rap is not a homogeneous style but rather a term that covers all rap by Latin@s. The first bilingual ("Spanglish") rappers were Kid Frost and Mellow Man Ace, followed by Cypress Hill featuring Mellow's brother Sen Dog. On the East Coast, Puerto Rican rappers Big Pun, Hurricane G and Fat Joe followed. In the course of the 1990s, rappers from Latin America and Spain dropped their first records, e.g. Control Machete from Mexico, DJ Kun from Argentina and 7 Notas 7 Colores from Spain.
