AllMusic Review by

Xtreme Latin Rap is a three-disc box set released by Thump that repackages Knight Owl's El Gran Pelon (originally released in 2004), Johnny Z's Bass Balla (2000), and Gerardo's Gerardo (2001). Thump has been known to do this kind of thing before -- why they do it can't really pinned down. The odds of anyone wanting these three discs in one shot can't be close to high; for starters, just about anyone familiar with Gerardo (of "Rico Suave" fame) would likely be surprised that the MC was still active as late as 2001. In other words, be certain that you want all three albums -- all of which are decent, if not substantial -- before you proceed.
