The Hip Hop Hoodíos (from Spanish judíos = Jews) are an American multilingal alternative rock and hip hop band. They are composed of Josué Noriega (born Josh Norek), Abraham Vélez, and Federico Fong (former member of La Barranca, Jaguares and Caifanes). Their debut EP contains three songs based on different Latin styles ("Ocho Kandelikas" being co-written by Juan Manuel Caipo from Orixa) and rap music; and two more rap-oriented tracks, one of them ("Dicks & Noses") being a version of the Delinquent Habits' "The Kind", the other featuring Abraham Velez on acoustic guitar. The full-length Agua Pa' La Gente is a leap in production values, and features guest artists Frank London and Paul Shapiro. Even though the Hoodíos' approach is mostly humorous, unlike the 2 Live Jews their aim is clearly also to provide innovative music.
