A YEAR LATER AFTER OPEN HEART SURGERY... Arturo Molina, Jr., who’s better known to the Hip Hop community and music fans as Kid Frost, is doing fine. Back in 2016 he had been diagnosed with cancer and despite the odds Frost just can't be kept down.

Today the 54 year old West Coast and Latino rap pioneer has shown that his resilience is something to be truly admired. Just last month Kid Frost performed live at Angel Baby’s Cruising Oldies Car Show In Ontario Califas.

CHICANO, Brown and Proud!

In one of his 2016 IG posts when battling cancer Frost told his followers:

“You can say what you want to say if you have a family member or know somebody who has gone through anything like this then don’t avoid or dodge a potential bullet go get checked! One thing I want to do is educated little bit from my experience and now we’re about to go into the battle royale this is no joke. I’m hurting inside for wasting so much time and now as I get older and have a real strong desire to live for these babies and the kids the devil want to hand me a monkey wrench."

"Diabetes is not what’s going to take me under it’s going to be the ailments and the kicker is from having diabetes you won’t be able to heal from any other diseases like cancer and such…I know a lot of the s— right now kid frost Diabetes Awareness foundation wake up call like I said go get checked it takes nothing if you haven’t been to the doctor in a while to have a physical and go check yourself out.”

Inspiring words from a Chicano rap legend...

The man who gave us 'Hispanic Causing Panic' is also the father of the Grammy nominated hip-hop producer known professionally as Scoop DeVille. But maybe Frost is best known for his single “La Raza” and for being one of the first artists signed to Eazy E‘s Ruthless Records. This was before being a Chicano rapper was cool or mainstream. A true pioneer.

ABOUT FROST

Arturo Molina, Jr. (born May 31, 1964), better known as Frost (originally Kid Frost), is an American rapper, songwriter and record producer. He is from Los Angeles, California. He is also the father of American record producer Scoop DeVille.

Molina was born and raised in Windsor, California and occasionally lived with his family in military bases in Guam and Germany. He began his music career in 1982 as Kid Frost as a tribute to his rival Ice-T, whom he often battled in the music industry. In an interview Frost stated that his first actual DJ was in fact Dr. Dre and DJ Yella. He soon became a breakdancer for Uncle Jamms Army.

In the mid-1980s, Frost released several pre-gangsta 12" singles on Los Angeles-based labels Electrobeat and Baja. In the late 1980s, Kid Frost moved to Virgin Records. Virgin released his biggest hit, "La Raza". His debut album, Hispanic Causing Panic was released in 1990. He also established a Latin rap supergroup called Latin Alliance, which released their only album, Latin Alliance, in 1991. His second album, East Side Story was released in 1992, which featured appearances from MC Eiht, A.L.T. and Ganxta Ridd from the Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E.
