2MX2 is an alternative Hip Hop band out of Colorado. They are well known for their modern renditions of traditional Latin music as well as their focus on political topics such as immigration, health, education reform, and other important matters of our times. The band consists of members Owen Trujillo who was born in Zacatecas Mexico, and Denver native, Juice ET Hugo. Both members are bilingual emcees with a passion for conscious lyrics. Although both emcees have had their own unique struggles, they are not afraid to share their experiences with their listeners. Owen Trujillo an “illegal immigrant” who came to the United States as a child to save his younger brothers life, often speaks about his struggle growing up in a society that fostered cultural shame. Although Hugo, a health advocate and a cancer survivor was born a citizen of the United States, he also struggled with immigration issues when he was separated from his father due to immigration laws. This dynamic duo strives to inspire through their music by sharing their personal stories with the intention of empowering their audience.
