Why Cartel Madras Rules by Ishmael Butler

Cartel MadrasForces of nature: the first time I saw and heard Cartel I knew they were flexing a force rare and special.

Though they were new to performing and rapping they had a visceral command on recordings and on stage that was steeped in love passion and excitement they have for rap music.

Strong fierce and beautifully captivating and riding on the crest of the new wave. Everyone that heard them were immediately feeling them as well. Amazing ladies.
