Summer Mixtape, Track 9: 'On a Sunday Afternoon' - Lighter Shade of Brown

Based on the old Young Rascals tune, "Groovin'," this is a delicious nothingburger of a pop-rap song about hanging in the park, drinking beer, grilling carne asada and bumping lowrider-worthy oldies with your homeys on a carefree Sunday afternoon - which may or may not make LSOB the Latin-rap equivalent of Loverboy.

It's pretty much the perfect summer jam, particularly if you've ever cruised Whittier Boulevard (which I have, though I wasn't technically cruising - not in the '87 Toyota Tercel hatchback that I drove when I lived in the armpit of Los Angeles). As a bonus, LSOB's principals had pretty memorable stage names: Don't Try to Xerox and One Dope Mexican. !Órale!
