Not just another rapper from Puerto Rico, Daddy Yankee has successfully coined the term reggaeton in music industry.
Being born in Rio Pierdas, Puerto Rico, Ramon couldn't escape the thick influence of hip-hop and rap in the area that at the age of 13, he started demonstrating his skill in rapping at parties and clubs.
Through these small 'gigs', he later on became acquainted to a pioneer of reggaeton DJ Playero who became his biggest inspiration in making music.
The DJ introduced him to the energetic vibe of reggae infused with hip-hop lyrics.
The label would then distribute some of his future recordings that sold for millions in U. Throughout the years, the album, that was sold over two million copies worldwide, made him the biggest exponent in reggaeton music.
From then on, Daddy Yankee was seen making a lot of collaborations with both fellow reggaetons and R&B crooners.
