THE OG CHOLA- ROSIE!











So I'm not sure if Rosie is a chola or not, but you know that every chola and their mama counts this as the all time greatest. Many cholas have conceived babies to this song, as well as dedicated it to their vatos in the pinta on the Art Laboe show on Sunday nights. Below is a clip of Rosie singing the song live at some show, it wouldn't let me post, so I suggest you check it out yourself:

LOL!! Rosie wasn't a chola!! I don't even think she was Mexican (Rosie Hamlin). Although, she did grow up in National City, CA, a suburban city in San Diego County. It was quite a nice city in her day, but now it’s full of cholos and cholas!

She went to Harbison Elementry School and Granger Junior High in National City. She also attended O'Farrell Junior High in the Encanto district of Southeast San Diego (a neighborhood that has a bad gang problem now). She went to High School at Mission Bay High in the Pacific Beach district of San Diego (now party central for SDSU, USD, and UCSD students).

My uncles remember when Rosie and the Originals played at Swiss Park in the Otay neighborhood of Chula Vista, CA (just south of National City) in the early 60’s. A big fight broke out between cholos from rival gangs (Otay vs. Logan). Needless to say…the show ended early!!!

I'm not hating-i'm just clearing up some misinformation. Why I am from "the right side of the tracks, or "white-washed"? Because I can spell and I make sense? I grew up in Shelltown on 40TH and Delta! Puro Gamma Boys 1920 Gang! If anyone knows what a cholo or chola looks like-it's me! You fools are just hating because you thought you knew...but you didn't! HA!

She im pretty sure she like the "Chola" style back in the days, but she is Mexican rosie mendez hamlin, the fact that mendez is there...im pretty sure she is lol.

Rosie's mom was Mexican and her dad was white. She wasn't a chola! Just because she is Mexican and made a firme oldie doesn't mean she was a chola. Back them we all listened to this jam...whites...black...chicano...chinos... Back then this was everyday music. Now everyone calls them oldies and cholos are into them oldies.

I went to Mission Bay High with her.
