The legendary hip hop / reggae band from Naples 99 Posse are back in Spain after a lengthy break of seven years.
Most of 99 Posse's songs deal with political or social issues, and the group members are notorious for their left-wing views. They have shown off their activism on all of their albums, releasing them with a prezzo politico (political price): each CD displays a sticker saying "Don't pay more than...".
Their first album, Curre Curre Guagliò (1993), was mainly influenced by reggae and world music, while subsequent albums, Cerco Tiempo (1996) and Corto Circuito (1998), included new styles like drum 'n bass and trip hop. Curre Curre Guagliò was self-produced, but rose from its underground status to become an iconic album.
