The 100 Best L.A. Rap Songs

77. Mellow Man Ace "Mentirosa" (1990)

Album: Escape From Havana
Label: Capitol
Producer: Tony G


Original Delicious Vinyl labelmates with Tone Loc and Young MC, Cuban-born, South Gate L.A. raised Mellow Man Ace never had a hit as big as "Wild Thing" or "Bust A Move." But "Mentitrosa" was close, going to No. 14 on the pop charts and putting Spanglish rap on the map. Produced by KDAY radio legend Tony G, "Mentitrosa" borrows its theme from the song it samples-"Evil Ways" by Santana-calling a girl out on her shit: "Last night you didn't go/ a la casa de tu tio..." True fact: Mellow Man Ace is Sen-Dog's older brother.
