Album Notes
ABRAZOS ARMY is a New York City Uptown based genre bending/blending, SalSoulful Funk meets radical Rap N Roll rhythm machine fronted by protest singer/mc/poet/songwriter and all around anarcho-agitator, Zero Prophet aka Not4Prophet (formerly of anti-corporate political punk rock band, RICANSTRUCTION and underground Hardcore Hip Hop group, X-Vandals infamy),

Although ABRAZOS is a loud and proud product of “The Boogie Down Bronx,” and its Nuyorican history and heritage is powerfully presented and represented in it's salsa meets soul stylings, collaborators and comrades of the ABRAZOS ARMY represent the entire essence of 'the Empire State' and have gnarly roots and far-reaching branches that extend to Latin America, the Caribbean and all the way to Asia, Africa and back.

ABRAZOS ARMY is a fiesta for your right to fight!

Abrazos Army Means War!
As I listen to Abrazos Army, I imagine looking out a window …onto 115th street and Lexington Ave, the east side of la isla bonita…through a steel fire gate out a cracked glass to a world paved with fools gold…a universe framed by a diamond shaped circumstance….i’m taken aback a ways…back in time…to Piri Thomas’ “Mean Streets” …to an old nueva Yo' city state of mind…

Yeah, this Latin Soul song, “Abrazos Para Ti,” and the B side, an homage to a Puerto Rican political prisoner, "The Ballad of Oscar Lopez Rivera", by Abrazos Army, is in a way one of those indelible pot holes; deep foot prints left behind…black tar warn worm holes through time into a past… time, a throw back for a thirsty Thursday-Friday-Saturday night live late night with the Latin Quarter crowd…to a time when Pedro Navaja and Juanito Alemania walked in the shadows of these beat streets… La vida te da sorpresas, ay dios...

But don't get it twisted, Abrazos Army means war! This here sal-soul con sabotage is the soundtrack to taking back the streets… a blow(black) deep into the temporal lobe…the hardcore that can take a a few hits on the stage and in the cage and keep it moving after words that resonate, rage…ripple into the every day vibrating… influencing through influence inspired by the fire lit by legends in the making taking it back, back into time…when only time would tell to take your time and smell the cheap wine and black roses and listen to the MUSIC…feel me? Feel it build…rise and raise, to the top of the world, ma and take you back home, again…to the/El Barrio and beyond with arms wide open and eyes wide shut walkin' that walk and talkin' that talk in those lines delivered with that one of a kind sonero's screaming soulful grace(notes) by former Ricanstruction singer and X-Vandals emcee, Zero Prophet aka Not4Prophet, with back up beauty and the beats and seditious support by The all mighty Abrazos Army's horn blast, drum bombs; taking no enemies while on the warpath and the blood stained dance floor...


I love this band
I moved to New York listening for a salsa sound. I encountered Abrazos Army. With a combination of salsa, soul, rap, funk and rock, it have me play this out in the Bronx.


A revolution I can dance to!
These two latest songs from the artist known as Zero Prophet (aka Not4Prophet) and his new band, Abrazos Army, have now been added to the top of my list of many favorites of his work. I have been a fan of Not4Prophet's artistry since the days of his punk band, Ricanstruction and following, his Hip Hop group, X-Vandals. While this seems to me, at first listen, to be a fresh (and lighter) departure from the previous hardcore, street vibe that I've come to expect from Not4Prophet, listening closely to the lyrics, the call for freedom and liberation of Puerto Rico (and all of us oppressed peoples) remain the same... and now it comes with hugs and revolutionary love! But not the least of all, his rich and sometimes raspy radical rock vocals, this time accentuated with sax, trombone, trumpet, congas, bongos and timbales of an even more powerful and perhaps provocative latin flavor, is still in FULL FORCE!

Thank you for these two latest gems, I'm looking forward to much more "Salsabotage!!" sounds in the future from the Abrazos Army.

En Solidarity!
