El Chivo is a Mexican-American rapper from Milwaukee, WI, who performs as a solo artist and also serves as a member of the group Kinto Sol with his brother, DJ Payback. Born Eduardo Garcia in Iramuco, Guanajuato, Mexico, at age 13 he came to the United States with his family, who, in search of a better life, settled in Milwaukee. El Chivo got into rap music in part because of his older brother, DJ Payback, who is not only a DJ but is also a producer. The two brothers joined with rapper Skribe, also the CEO of Virus Enterprises, to form the Latino rap group Kinto Sol, whose albums include Kinto Sol (2000), Del Norte al Sur (2001), Hecho en Mexico (2003), La Sangre Nunca Muere (2005), Los Hijos del Maiz (2007), and 15 Rayos (2007). El Chivo was essentially an auxiliary member of the group when it began, yet he quickly became a primary member in time. In 2002 he made his solo debut, Watchate con los Topes, and released his follow-up, Si Ladran No Muerden!!, in 2004. His third album, Cicatrices, was released in 2008. ~ Jason Birchmeier, Rovi
