AllMusic Review by

Despite the fact that it plays fast and loose with the definition of "Latino" -- Biggie Smalls and Makaveli (aka 2Pac) were not Latin, nor is Detroit white boy Eminem -- Deff Trapp's Latino Gangster Rappers is overall a pretty good sampling of hardcore Latino hip-hop, featuring cuts by Big Punisher ("Still Not a Player"), Fat Joe ("Bet Your Man Can't"), South Park Mexican ("Holla At Cha Later"), D'Linquent Habits ("Here Comes the Homies"), Frost ("Rock On") and Cypress Hill ("Windows of My Room"). Although the featured songs aren't necessarily the artists' best, and although there's a noticeable lull in the second half, when three Trapp songs in a row follow each other, it's still a pretty enjoyable listen, both for fans of the genre and for the curious.
