The mic doesn’t fall far from the hip-hop stage with this group of second-generation rhyme-sayers.

Kid Frost & Scoop DeVille

Scoop DeVille was born in Los Angeles and is the son of hip-hop pioneer, Kid Frost, a veteran rapper and founding member of super group Latin Alliance. Scoop appeared in his father’s arms for his first music video, “La Raza”, at the ripe age of three. Raised in a musical family, DeVille started rapping at the age of two, writing music at age nine, and produced his first hit single “Mamacita” by Baby Bash featuring Marcos Hernandez at age fifteen.

DeVille has produced records for several prominent rappers, such as Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, 50 Cent, Busta Rhymes and Fat Joe, among several others. He is perhaps best known for producing rapper Snoop Dogg’s “I Wanna Rock”, as well as Kendrick Lamar’s “Poetic Justice”, both of which charted in the Top 50 of the US Billboard Hot 100.
