Roscoe Umali - Live it up REMIX feat E-40 & Bobby Valentino

Roscoe Umali aka "The Freshest Filipino" is an up and coming Filipino rapper from Los Angeles, California. He classifies himself as a "throwback emcee" meaning, he uses a lot of the elements of the past and mixes it in with the style of rap that is relevent today. Roscoe Umali does it all: freestyles, battle raps, story telling and club bangers. This summer of 2008 Roscoe had been a frequent guest in the The Wake Up Show on POWER 106 FM, the premier hip hop station in Los Angeles, doing freestyle raps.

Roscoe has worked with well-known artists such as E-40, Talib Kweli, Bobby Valentino, Colby Odonis, Dead Prez, Murphy Lee and I15. He also worked with producers such as World Famous DJ Qbert, DJ Khali, DK ALL DAY, Jellyroll, and DJ Muggs. He has a street album out released in 2007 called I Love My DJs and new album is called The World's Finest and will be out in stores soon.

Live it Up is a summer smash hit single from Roscoe's new album and it features the Bay Area's E-40 and Bobby Valentino singing the hook.

Note: If you're wondering, that is CJ Miles aka "The Most Downloadable Asian on the Net" in the video.
