Delinquent Habits

Biography

Delinquent Habits (also known as Los Delinquentes and Los Tres Delinquentes) is a hip hop group. Formed in East Los Angeles in 1991, they are known for their Latin-tinged rap, which is both melodic and hardcore. Their first album was executive produced by Cypress Hill member Sen Dog and featured guest appearances by Sen himself as well as Puerto Rican New York City rapper Hurricane G. Their second album, Here Come The Horns, again featured Sen Dog as well as Sen's brother, pioneering Latin rapper Mellow Man Ace. The melodic Merry Go Round featured the female singer Michelle. The group chose to focus more on hardcore rap on their fourth offering, Freedom Band.

Delinquent Habits was originally made up of Kemo The Blaxican, Ives Irie (both MCs) and O.G. Style (a DJ). Thus the group was often called Los Tres Delinquentes (Spanish for "The Three Delinquents"). As a trio, they sold over 1 million copies of their single Tres Delinquentes, published on the Station 13 label in 1996. They subsequently received a lot of attention from MTV and the media. Their self-titled first album, Delinquent Habits, was executive produced by Sen Dog of Cypress Hill and sold almost a million copies. Their second release, Here Come The Horns, was produced by Mellow Man Ace. They have been compared to Cypress Hill. Their work Merry Go-Round was sold on the underground "Spanglish network".

Kemo soon left after the completion of their album Freedom Band to pursue a solo career with some substantial success. He was replaced by female vocalist Michelle, who had been previously featured in their songs. Around five years later on O.G. Style left the band too.

August 2008 former MC Kemo signed a record deal with Ampire Records/ Redrum Recordz for a European release of his second album.

In 2013 founding members Ives Irie and Kemo The Blaxican decided to reunite. Their first common release since 2003 is set for 2015.
