From punk bands to spoken word events it all began in 1993.

“Beats and style of each song is totally unpredictable… with very good production. RZA should keep his ears open and get to work with Jehuniko. It is Latin rap: Spanish and English Hip-Hop mixed together. It does have Immortal Technique feel and a bit of Wu-Tang influence and sound. Also, Jehuniko’s voice reminds me of Lars from Metallica, but this is hip-hop.”
DJ Windwalker, Wu-Forever.com
“In a time when the music industry is currently being dominated by bubble gum commercial rap there is always an artist that goes against the grain and defies the industry standards, Jehuniko is one of those artists. His latest release "Cold In The Hot Sun" provides hardcore beats with a political message that focuses on educating inner cities around the world. Favorite tracks include: "Gracias al Creador" (feat. Huba & Anura), "Keep Moving," "Contra NAFTA," & "Uphold The Code." If you’re fan of Latin hip hop music this is a must buy!!”
