With all the mayhem in todays society there is a must that this world has a positive role model in hip hop for all cultures. On Febuary 28,2013 Sabor Latino released his first album titled “Observations Of My Life Vol.1.

Inside his book there are twelve chapters. In these twelve chapters, the reader will be able to learn how to write a book , how to create a completed music cd, the value of a college education, and many more detailed experiences full of inspiration. As we all know, in this society that we are living in, creating positive minds is a very difficult thing to excel at. Sabor Latino’s major in psychology, and education, as well as his experiences as a social worker, has allowed him to truly see the importance of helping others . He has also, become a role model for many adolescents around the world.Since music can be used as a therapy, it is also a powerful tool when it comes to coping with challenges of all magnitudes. In summary, you will be able to understand that nothing in life is easy, but as long as you work hard, you will be able to have success. The legacy of Sabor Latino will live for ever.
