I have this on repeat!
^ Here goes the official music video to that ''Antes de Morirme'' song
The legendary DJ Dicky, and who could forget those classic NO FEAR albums 1, 2, 3, and 4. DJ Dicky had some well known names on those compilation albums of his. Wisin &Yandel, Tito & Hector, Daddy Yankee, Nicky Jam, Don Omar, etc.
I always acknowledge those pioneers who paved the way, for all these new cats, cause without them we wouldn't have J Balvin, Ozuna, Maluma, Farruko, etc.
Classic: NICKY JAM DJ DICKY NO FEAR 4
In Reggaeton, I'm an OG like that NES Mario...
Back in high school (early 2000s) who you think they came to for the latest Reggaeton bangers. I used to sell them some mixtapes that I did of the hottest Reggaeton songs.
C Flyness Past, Present, and Future!
yea I know, I'm ashamed of myself But that's what happens when you're raised in the hood, you become ignorant and closed-minded. My ex was Dominican and she had put me on dembow and had me listening to bachata all the time. Since our break-up was nasty and I was hurt, I wanted nothing to do with any of that music. I'm slowly coming out of my shell and doing things that were out of my comfort zone. Ozuna got a concert here on the 15th, I know all the tings gonna be out there
COMING SOON: Bryant Myers, De La Ghetto, Darell & Almighty - ''Ojala''
Zion (BABY RECORDS) new signee: La Zista
This is the latest from her!
THE WAR (TIRAERA) HAS BEGUN ALMIGHTY VS. CARBON FIBER MUSIC (FARRUKO, LARY OVER, ETC.)
NEW ''JonTrapVolta'' by Jon Z
Feel like there is so much revisionist's history with the genre. Credit is not given to the real pioneers. See Vico C getting repped in here hard, but he was only known in PR. Going to the clubs in the city you never heard him. You know who was breaking into the rotation? El General. He made the early sound international. He got airtime on radio stations during normal hours, while everyone else had to be played at 1am in the morning being called underground. Dude made it so these artists could make some real money. Was getting played all over the world!
Going all around to here groups like Fulanito, Oro Solido, Grupo Mania at the Copa, LQ's, and a hundred other hole in the wall joints in Queens, NJ, and all over the tri-state, the only artist even close to reggaeton being played in between sets was El General. I know cats want to go back in time and claim credit for this and that, but those jokers are still stuck on an island if not for what he did.
Mad Props to El General for what he did. But at the end of the day, he belongs to the Reggae en Español (Reggae Panameño) movement, not the Reggaeton movement. Just talk to an old Panamanian head, and they'll tell you that El General never did Reggaeton. Saying El General is Reggaeton, its a common misconception. But I know the real history. That's why I don't rep El General on this thread.
Big Boy, Vico C, DJ Negro, Ruben DJ, Brewley MC, etc. These guys are the real first Reggaeton/Spanish Rap Pioneers.
My point is his music was the precursor that paved the way for the early reggaeton. Nobody was listening to Vico C outside the island. He was localized hip-hop. Spanish Rap.
This came out in '88. He may have evolved it from reggae, but you can't tell me this wasn't the inspiration for modern reggaeton.
I'm not denying the fact that Reggaeton was inspired by those Panamanian cats like El Gneral, cause they have even said it themselves. But El General was never part of the Reggaeton movement, like I said before. He represented the Spanish Reggae movement from Panama. The word Reggaeton was created in PR, so therefore it was only a Boricua thing at the time, nowadays other countries claim it... It is now the norm. You'll see Reggaeton from Colombia (J Balvin & Maluma), Honduras, Panama and when I say Panama I mean the ''NEW CATS'', Chile, etc.
Guess my point is PR always wants to take credit for stuff that's not theirs. They just good at rebranding stuff and giving it a different name.
Reggaeton, salsa, etc. The typical response is to always try to minimize other countries contributions by saying it just within the local country(ie Panamanian), when that is exactly what PR is. By those terms Vico C is just PR hip-hop.
Why is it that the people gravitated more to Reggaeton than the Spanish Reggae from Panama, the answer is cause it was much better. El General faded away, and after him there really wasn't any more artists coming out with hits, but on the other hand you had PR that was consistently coming out with them Underground hits. Prime example: Big Boy - ''Mis Ojos Lloran Por Ti''
Alberto Stylee - ''Vengo Acabando''
Don Chezina - ''Tra, Tra, Tra,''
Speedy - ''Hagamos El Amor Con La Ropa''
And the list goes on...
Fast forward to 2017 and I still don't see any Panamanian cats breaking records like the Boricuas Prime example: ''Despacito'' by Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee. Nowadays the only ones who are compatible to the Reggaeton from PR, is Colombia (J Balvin & Maluma). Prime example: ''Mi Gente'' by J Balvin...
NEW TIRAERA: The original ''RIP CARBON'' song by Almighty
Almighty vs. Carbon Fiber Music (Farruko, Lary Over, etc.)
