is a musical style that has been in Puerto Rico
for over 10 years. Most of the singers are male. The style is a mix from Rap and Hip Hop with the native music "Bomba" and "Plena" that gives the regular rap a latin touch and a better dance beat.
The lyrics are about the reality on the streets, missunderstandings, unfair situations, and last but not least about love, cheating, and been really mad at someone because of something.
Artists employing this style:
- Don Omar
- Tego Calderon
- Hector y Tito
- Ivy Queen
