If the name Merc100Man doesn’t ring a bell, then maybe Merciless of the pioneer group Funky Aztecs does. As the chief architect behind the group, Vallejo rapper Merc debuted in 1991 with “Chicano Blues”, which featured collaborations with the legend 2Pac Shakur (watch the video to “Slippin’ Into Darkness“) and Digital Underground. Between ’91 and ’99, the Funky Aztecs released three albums together, blending the gangster mentality with the militant mindstate carried by artists such as Tupac, Ice Cube and Scarface.

 

After the last Funky Aztecs album, Merciless joined the all-star super group Lone Star Ridaz, along with fellow Vallejo artist Baby Bash,South Park Mexican as well as producer Happy Perez (Paul Wall, Chamillionaire, Juvenile). The group released two albums, “Wanted” and “40 Dayz / 40 Nightz”.

 

Merciless was arrested in 2008 after released two solo albums for possession of marijuana in Texas and began serving a two-year sentence in 2010. Now, after almost two years in prison, he is back on the scene and ready to get back in the game. He has three albums locked and loaded, the first, “Déjà Vu – Volume 1”, was released on April 24th 2012 release date. The album featured production from platinum producer Happy Perez, along with appearances from Baby Bash, Frost, Jay Tee, Don Cisco, South Park Mexican, Latino Velvet, Lawless and fellow Funky Aztec member Indio.

 

On July 24th 2012, Merc released “Déjà Vu – Volume 2“, featuring Baby Bash, E-40, South Park Mexican, Latino Velvet and many others. The album is available on iTunes, Amazon and all digital retailers.
