Mr. Capone-E

Chicano rapper Mr. Capone-E built a sizable following throughout Southern California, where he found a comfortable home for his hardcore style at Thump Records. He joined the Thump roster after recording his Mr. Capone-E & the Southsiders album (2000) for Hi Power. While at Thump, Capone-E notably recorded Dedicated 2 the Oldies (2003), which featured him interpolating a number of oldies like Rosie & the Originals' "Angel Baby" and the Escorts' "Look Over Your Shoulder." In 2006, he joined Twista on the Top 40 single "Don't Get It Twisted," while 2009 saw him team with Snoop Dogg for "Light My Fire." The album Tears of a Soldier followed in 2011, and Oldies for Life landed in 2013. After issuing the Los Angeles Times mixtape in 2014, Capone-E released a pair of LPs in 2016. Arriving on the same day, For Respect and No Regrets were followed the next year by a quadruple set of gangsta rap LPs: Jackin' Your Beats, Gangster Love, A Hi Power Smokeout, and My Gang Related. ~ Jason Birchmeier
