In the last year we have seen a new era of hip hop emerging from the Southwest with Mexican American 'Chicano' rap artist Big Rich Tha Don. Dirty Dawg Recordz has remained steadfast in helping gain national recognition for their artist Big Rich.

This ex-convict and now college student has been inspired by his own life to write the most creatively constructed lyrics making him the No 1 Chicano rap artist in the nation, the secret to his success is the drive and determination to make people understand and believe that not all Mexican American 'Chicano' rap and Hip Hop are the same. He places the knowledge of collage studies into poetically structured street influenced music making him a much more powerful writer, his music is easier to understand and entertains a much broader audience.

Dirty Dawg Recordz, tells us that they have a few projects underway and will release the news as it becomes available. We have seen Big Rich dominate the Southwest Chicano Rap scene by putting his image into the eyes of the nation. Big Rich tells us, [Big Rich Tha Don]' look when individuals hear the word Chicano Rap they instantly think of the conventional Chicano rapper but that's not me! I represent my culture and rap about the truth, most of the people to day pontificate and mislead the public that's why I focus on adding class and integrity to my lyrics, I have never lied about my progress in the rap game, I have told the public about who I am and where I have come from'.

Big Rich Tha Don - A Chicano With Roots, Heritage And Pride

Richard Baca, AKA 'Big Rich Tha Don' grew up on the streets of new Mexico, having been fathered by what he describes as a failure of a father, he was forced to look elsewhere for strength and leadership - His Grandfather would be that man. But this was no ordinary Man.

Henry Campos was a strong role model, booming with self confidence, a strong sense of heritage, morals and was himself, an extremely well respected community leader.

Early on though, Richard was unable to focus and quickly found himself in trouble.

Spending time at a correctional facility, He opened his eyes to the fact and realization that the world was a cold dark place, where he could expect help from no one, especially the system. He also began to understand the very nature of the beast - This is a world where Chicano’s were EXPECTED to fail, and helped along the way by a corrupt system which oppresses minorities.

He realized that if he were going to make it, he would have to CHANGE the game in his favor.

Enrolling in college, he started to bloom with the self confidence and aura of legendary Cesar Chavez's vision of "Si Se Puede!" (Yes, It Can Be Done!). Sadly though, his grandfather passed away, but Richard is confident in knowing that from somewhere up there, His Grandfather is looking down at him smiling.

The lessons learned from his grandfather quickly began to make sense. A new Man began to emerge - A smarter, sharper and stronger one than before. It’s then He realized he could be more and MUCH more.

Not letting anything get in his way, this now Politically aware Chicano is set to launch himself into the stratosphere even further by releasing his first Rap Album, produced by none other than himself under his own recently formed label!

Setting to debut himself to the world in 2005, he has vowed to make his mark on music, showing the world that, not only can Chicano’s overcome adversity and the challenge of living within a society that promotes failure, but that you can excel at what ever you put your mind to, as long as you don’t forget where you came from and who you are.

His album is still in production, but hopes for a mid-2005 release. Listen to Big Rich Tha Don’s First two tracks “Chicano” and “Make That Money”, right here on the Vision Radio Network.




Big Rich Tha Don & Chicano Movement Roots

10/6/04 - LatinRapper.com


Dirty Dawg Recordz artist Richard V. Campos Baca aka Big Rich Tha Don prepares to make his mark in Chicano Rap, but also has his roots in the push for Chicano rights.  Big Rich is the grandson of the late Henry V. Campos, founder and former president of the AFL-CIO Local 624 located in the city of Albuquerque New Mexico.

Henry Campos was a respected figure during the Chicano movement for social justice and equality during the 1960's and 1970's labor union reform era. 


Henry Campos led his fellow workers into a strike that caused the city of Albuquerque to shut down for several weeks.  As a voice of the people, Campos was charged in a local court by the city of Albuquerque state of New Mexico alleging claims of damage to city property at the hands of his organization members.  Campos was acquitted in the states court but was charged in the federal court system.


Big Rich Tha Don was raised by his grandfather from the age of 3 months after being abandoned by his mother and father in Colorado.  Rich is a self-proclaimed real Chicano, stating that he was taught to love his culture, speak his language and be proud of who he was.  "The short time I had with my grandfather Henry will last me a life time," Rich has been quoted as stating, "He taught me so much, to never bow down to another man and to respect others."  Rich, who also credits his aunt for looking after him in his youth, also states "I am the new generation of an old movement bred to uphold my grandfather's dream of what it means to be a real Chicano"  Be on the lookout for Big Rich's upcoming album and involvement with "Project Chicanismo".
