Review: Geno V ‎– Take Me Serious

Geno V ‎– Take Me Serious is one of the more overlooked Christian Latin music albums and Christian rap albums out there. The album Geno V – Take Me Serious sold 15,000 units independently back in 1994. Geno V brought his Hip-Spanic Music (a blend of Spanish and English rap incorporated with Tejano and Tex-Mex) to the mic. The tracks are firme and tight.

Rapture deals with transport (a believer/believers) from earth to heaven at the Second Coming of Christ and the transporting of believers to heaven at the Second Coming of Christ.

Este Vato copies the percussion ensemble kit of Santana – Oye Como Va. The Latin samba comes complete with the percussion sample. The percussion ensemble is played in a virtuoso manner as the song quickly turns into a Latin dance melody. Geno V uses a twist of linguistics in word from the Spanish language. He uses both English and Spanish languages. (Este Vato is “That Friend” in Spanish.)

Chisme quickly turns into an upbeat Latin samba dance melody of happiness. The beats are loco! The entire chorus sings in Spanish as Geno V raps in Spanish. Maracas and bongos are added to spice of Spanish flavor in this song. Such bongos are appropriate to match the upbeat tempo of the percussion as Chisme is a heavy percussion song.

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