P La Cangri- Lo Que Viene

Once again, female power, passion, and sex appeal come seeping out of P La Cangri’s music. Hard at work in the studio for the summer P has cooked up a promising lineup of hits that are true to her work ethic and raw talent. Behind the tough Brooklyn-girl exterior is a beautiful soul that speaks of love, heartbreak and the struggles endured in the music industry that have shaped her unique and vibrant sound. In P’s world it’s all about staying true, never selling out, and daring to call out the opponent to a around-about of battling lyricism, but who will step up? Whether its the Cuban blood or the Puerto Rican influences fueling this star’s fire I can’t decipher, but what is real at any moment in her artistic trajectory is the love and dedication stamped on her product. Stay tuned for her new album’s release P La Cangri Viene Duro!

Nicky Jam- An Underrated Talent

Nick Rivera Caminero, better known in the Reggaeton world as Nicky Jam, is what I like to like an underrated talent. His authentic voice is sexy yet hard hitting when needed on those edgy bars, and what’s more, his voice is never mistaken for another as it comes through the speakers of your radio. The half Boricua half Dominican singer has been in the game for a while making hits with industry bigs like Daddy Yankee, Hector El Father, Big Boy, and Rakim y Ken-Y. All-time favorites like “Yo No Soy Tu Marido” and “Chambonea” represent old-school Reggaeton at its purest form, the type that makes you feel the undeniable sensuality of the Urban branch of Latin music.

Currently residing in Medellin, Colombia Nicky Jam continues to work hard at his calling and always maintains genuine references to the streets he finds inspiration in. Whether it’s the beautiful women that walk those streets, or the struggle that lives within them the MC always delivers music that pays homage. It’s simple, don’t be mislead by his subtle presence in the lime light, just show support to the talent regardless of the amount of spotlights shone on them. Let me say this, Nicky Jam Reggaeton, like the one us true die hards learned to sweat it out to, is not for everybody, but if you appreciate the genre and solid talent, you’ll get it.

P La Cangri

Now this woman right here is a constant reminder of hard work. I did not choose this track because of its witty nature, but I chose it because it speaks to who P La Cangri is as an artist. She represents Cuba, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic but most importantly she represents the fire that is in each one of us Latin females. She is a Diva without the overpriced nails, she spits rhymes well in a booth as she does on the streets she calls her own. P La Cangri is for the Urban movement; she is for the people.

If you’re for strong women holding it down for the Latin Urban movement I want you to do 3 things:

  1. Follow P La Cangri @La_P
  2. Visit her official website http://www.placangri.com
  3. Love the art that drives your breath

La Verdadera Perla

La Perla, Puerto Rico

La Verdadera Perla

Graffiti, skate park, hood-like community, passion,what else do you think of when you see this picture?
This was taken in La Perla, Puerto Rico, home to some of the most beautiful and talented people on this planet; and I’m not taking about looks. La Perla breeds passion, determination, love, and not just the wrongly judged “gangsta.”
Home to stars like Calle 13 and De La Ghetto, La Perla is pro active about bettering the lives of it’s youth-filled streets. El Estudio D’Oro is just one push towards growth and harmony. This free-of-charge studio welcomes all age groups to express their emotions through music. Ohh music, how you take the ugly and create the beautiful…

I pray for La Perla and stand proud by its people and its efforts to progress. There is nothing more beautiful to me than a diamond in the rough, or should I say a perla in the rough?
