Green Card Special
Juan Ruiz was born in Mexico City, raised in the streets of Houston TX, and Veracruz, Ver. Mexico. Born to a single hardworking mother, who later met this American while she worked for the Mexican Immigration. As you can imagine, it lead to a passage to the United States. Bienvenidos! Growing up in Houston and Mexico, Juan absorbed the lifestyles and cultures of both worlds. And with the trials and tribulations life has in it's path. Juan lived the struggles and hardships adults face, his early teenage years of life. Just like many young adults, he thought he was untouchable. And after several near death experiences, Juan new his purpose on earth had not been fulfilled. He needed to be heard! But it wasn't until the last quarter of 1999 when Juan joined a couple of co-workers to some rap sessions and began writing. Rapping about what was on the radio, the rims and the bling, Juan wasn't feeling it cause he wasn't living it. So he ventured off to work on his own project, he decided to write about his experiences, thru positive messages and just keeping it real. And with three years in the making, hard earned paychecks, patience and staying focused. Juan Ruiz brings you his debut album... "GREEN CARD SPECIAL."
