Geno V – Fuego is one of the lesser known albums from the Austin, Texas based record label Grapetree Records. Not too many people know about this album. Geno V brought his Hip-Spanic Music (a blend of Spanish and English rap incorporated with Tejano and Tex-Mex) to the mic and uses a twist of linguistics in words from the Spanish language with his follow-up album to Take Me To Tha Homies. Geno V has developed a unique style which he calls Hip-Spanicó, a bilingual blend of Spanish and English Rap incorporated with the Latin Music of Tejano, Tex-Mex and some International flavors. He manages to keep in touch with his religious side. The tracks are firme and tight. This is another Latin music infused rap album.

He worked with Knolly Williams to produce this album. Many people contributed to the recording of this album. Producers, vocalists, percussion ensemble, you name it. Knolly Williams served as the executive producer on the album.

Fuego was intended to be Geno V’s follow-up album to Take Me To Tha Homies. Geno V – Fuego was intended to be released in 1999 by Grapetree Records on CD and cassette for the Latin music imprint GT Latin. However for whatever reason(s) may have been, this never happened. Geno V’s Fuego album remains unreleased and no one has that album. For whatever reason(s) the #1 Christian rap label in the world failed to release his second album for GT Latin.

Geno V’s Fuego album was mentioned in Issue #30 of the Illtip magazine in an article titled “Geno V Story”. The article mentions how Geno V raps in Spanish on the Fuego album. He uses both English and Spanish languages.

I rate this album 4/5****!
