This past May, Fiesta Gardens played host to Austin’s biggest Latin music festival this side of the Rio Grande, Pachanga Fest. For the first time in the festival’s four year history, attendees got to experience the Latino street stylings of Houston rapper Chingo Bling. Often known to fans for his unique look and non-music related business ventures, Chingo Bling is an entity all to himself. His comedic lyrics set to various background beats from popular mainstream hip hop songs set him apart from his peers.
It was during Pachanga Fest that Austin Vida’s Ian Morales and a camera crew from our friends at Blastro caught up with Chingo Bling for an interview. Chingo discussed his upcoming projects, going overboard on branding himself and even teaches us a little bit of “Ching-lish.” Trust us when we tell you, you haven’t seen or heard anyone like Chingo Bling.
